Butterworth Trail

Trails are great

December, 2016 by laura_prutch

I have not lived in Michigan in a lot of years but I will be relocating soon. I lived in Colorado Springs for the last ten years and have survived without a car and mostly relied on safe and shortcut trails. The trail system is great and whenever I see trash or graffiti I always try to do my part in at least picking up the trash and dispose of it. After all it's up to every individual to do their part if we want a beautiful earth. Just sayin...

White Pine Trail State Park

new surface?

November, 2016 by stevej371

Biked this trail from Howard City south to Cedar Springs today. Workers were finishing up with new bridges on both sides of Howard City. I wonder if it's in the plans to asphalt this section??

Fred Meijer Flat River Valley Rail Trail

Started in Lowell

November, 2016 by rosedurst

I drove to Lowell to take this trail north from there. It is not paved. It is rocks about the size of a small fist at least where it starts in Lowell. I was on my mountain bike, but only ended up going a short ways along it as the size of the rocks made it very bumpy and for me unpleasant. I ended up taking the shorter paved trail that started at cedar park and went to the high school and back.

White Pine Trail State Park

Fun & Beautiful Trail!

October, 2016 by ptl6kds

My husband and I rode a portion of the White Pine trail from Grand Rapids to 3 miles past Rockford. It was a great ride. Love that it is paved and that you can stop along the way in various places to see things, have lunch and just enjoy the time outside. Would recommend it to those who like paved trails. We hope to go the entire length eventually.

Battle Creek Linear Park

Smooth Riding/Poorly Marked

September, 2016 by jsexton30

Started out a little difficult with the inability to determine exactly where the trail started at Brady & Dickman. The trail was easily found but nothing marked for parking. Very industrial and concerned may get towed while riding. Ended up driving into Battle Creek and starting near the Underground Railroad monument. Was also told it connects to the trail that starts at Bridges Park but not sure how. Overall nice ride. Had lunch at Arcadia Brewery. Fun Day!

Musketawa Trail

Great Trail.

September, 2016 by lindatap

We rode the trail on a great day for biking. Rode from Muskegon to Conklin and back. Great scenery. Saw blueberries fields and lots of wild turkeys. Rest rooms in trail were welcome and clean. Grade is pretty steady. Only wished to wind was BEHIND us as we pedaled back to Muskegon with tired legs and bums!

Fred Meijer Heartland Trail

nice ride

September, 2016 by sharonedgar

Rode from Alma to Edmore and back. Trail in good condition. Shaded. Well marked. On weekends I start in Albion on campus at the Alma College Heritage Center parking lot. The nearby building is often open (to use the bathroom!!) Some of the crossings over dirt roads are a little soft

Fred Meijer Heartland Trail

lovely shaded ride with cute towns with TWO ice cream locations

September, 2016 by sharonedgar

I biked this trail today from Greenville to Vestaburg and back. I had planned on going all the way to Alma and back but wussed out at Vestaburg. This is a great trail. It is in decent shape (some rough areas, but really nothing to complain about). The road crossings are not overly annoying, but a few require caution. The towns of Greenville, Stanton, Edmore and Vestaburg are all adorable. I have found two ice cream parlors - one right along the trail in Stanton (how great is that AND they have frozen yogurt) and one a block off the trail in Vestaburg. If you start in Greenville take a spin around the Flat River trail as well, it's a slow roll because of the curves and fair amount of pedestrain traffic, but it is a nice way to finish the long ride.

Fred Meijer Flat River Trail

great cool down ride

September, 2016 by sharonedgar

I did part of this trail today - would have done the whole thing but quite frankly I kept getting lost (I cant read a trail map if my life depended on it). I did 58 miles on the FM Heartland Trail - from Greenville to Vestaburg. I had planned on Greenville to Alma and back (80+ miles which would have been my longest single day ride to date) but when I got to Vestaburg I was not sure I was up to the full 80+ miles so turned around and headed back (after ice cream of course) However as approached my car in Greenville I was still feeling feisty so picked up another 10+ miles on the Flat River Trail. Some wonderful views and a few curves that made a slow roll on the trail the perfect finish to my day!

Fred Meijer Flat River Trail

Not trike friendly

August, 2016 by wisneski2

There are manhole covers about every 100 feet on this trail, at least as it leaves Greenville at the trailhead parking area. There are also dangerous road crossings, especially near Greenville Tool & Die. Some pretty wetlands, but not a relaxing ride when one is dodging covers and crossing streets. Try the White Pine Trail instead.
