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...

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.

Portage Creek Bicentennial Trail

There is now more of it!

October, 2016 by martinf

The southern portion psst the Portage Library has been extended past the end of the Shaver Road Bikeway all the way to Oosterhout Road. I rode the brand-new paved trail of about 2 miles length through the Eliason Nature Preserve this morning and it is amazingly scenic, smooth and undulating through mature forest, a roller bladers and bicyclist's dream. The connection to the Portage Creek Trail is not marked. Pick your way from the library past the Fire Station and City Hall across Centre Road to the side walk along the train tracks and strip mall to reach the Shaver Road section.

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!

Lakeshore Connector Path

Path Review

September, 2016 by scamron

We rode the Path this morning, from Grand Haven to Port Sheldon. It was a comfortable 26 mile round trip ride. Several reviewers have already described the hilly nature of the ride, which my wife and I enjoyed (we don't like most flat trails). Others have also commented on portions of the trail that are bumpy because of repaired cracks in the asphalt. We agree, but don't think it detracted much from the overall pleasant ride. Others have also said they preferred the bike lane along Lakeshore Drive to the Path: not is. We stopped for lunch at the Sandy Point Beach House. I liked their selection of draft beers and the creative menu. I ate the beet salad and would order it again! We were staying at Grand Haven State Park and recommend against riding south along the shore drive to Grand street: the residential area built on the dunes was a bit chall Ning. We came back to the campground from downtown after following Sheldon Road north from the non-existent trailhead until it turned into S. 5th Street downtown. It's too bad this trail isn't better marked, but it was easy to find. It's also a shame that city streets in Grand Haven don't have bike lanes.

Falling Waters Trail

A well cared for trail

September, 2016 by chipper53

I rode this trail on a picture perfect September weekday. Obviously somebody cares about it, because there were numerous birdhouses, benches, mile markers. I only wished it was longer and perhaps a little more remote. But otherwise, this is an easy trip from Lansing and well worth it.

Pumpkinvine Nature Trail

Parking in Shipshewana, Traffic in Middlebury

September, 2016 by twotandemfamily

We drove to the western terminus of the trail in Shipshewana, Indiana to begin our ride. The Pumpkinvine website recommends parking near the Pak-A-Sak convenience store/Marathon gas station, where there is plenty of parking for tourists in a large lot. The half mile ride on county road W 250 N to the beginning of the trail worried us; however, a paved Amish buggy lane is provided on both sides of the W 250 N outside of town, and we felt very safe on the road. It's essentially an Amish style 4 lanes wide "highway," with speed limited to 40 m.p.h.

We were also concerned about crossing State Route 13 in Middlebury; however, an excellent traffic light with crosswalk signals is installed, and we felt perfectly comfortable traversing the busy motorway with our children. And an underpass at US Route 20 eliminates any encounters with that road's heavy truck traffic.

Interestingly, we observed two advertisements directed to travelers on the trail, one listing a house for sale, another advertising stud services for a stallion with his pedigree listed. It is evident that this trail is handy and practical for local residents, which makes it even more enjoyable for a visitor.

Kal-Haven Trail Sesquicentennial State Park

Best trail

September, 2016 by demauch_tl

Rode this trail yesterday. It is the most beautiful trail I have ridden. This trail seems to have a lot of road crossings, but only a few had any real traffic. The limestone is packed down, almost like concrete in areas, and loosened up in a few areas, resembling sand. It could use some maintenance to fill a few holes in the trail, one of them jarring everyone in my group hard enough that we each checked to make sure we didn't blow a tire. The trail is paved through Bloomingdale. The trail is mostly shaded with a few open areas and cornfields, and as a previous review said, there are chipmunks everywhere. One just sat in the middle of the trail while I rode by. Traveling from Kalamazoo to South Haven, the trail slopes overall downhill. I would like to ride this trail again.

Kal-Haven Trail Sesquicentennial State Park

trail of trees

August, 2016 by brianfred52

We rode west from Gobles 11 miles and back. The next day we rode east 10 miles and back. It's a beautiful trail, mostly a tunnel of trees. We've got to come back in the Fall because it will be awesome when the trees turn to Fall colors. In between our rides it poured rain for several hours but there was no evidence of it on the trail. It was high and dry.

Pumpkinvine Nature Trail

A Piece of Paradise

August, 2016 by augustabutton

I've ridden only a short part of this trail starting in Shipshewana over to Goshen several times and this section is a magical ride.
Smooth paved, flat and away from any main roads, it takes you through the heart of Amish countryside.
You come across a number of Amish and everyday riders and walkers and several times I've passed workers in the fields or kids in the gardens who are all pleasant and friendly.

Highly recommended if you are visiting the area!
