Fred Meijer White Pine Trail State Park

Trail with a Split Personality

August, 2017 by pcturner0277

We bikepacked the trail in August 2017 with our dog Yoo-Hoo in the trailer. The trail is awesome on the paved sections and challenging on the unpaved portions. We started in Comstock Park and rode north to the Mecosta County Park in Paris. A wonderful little park! There is a great little pizza shop on the trail there. If you plan ahead you can reserve one of the little cabins in the park and forego a tent. That day we had to grind out a 29 mile stretch of gravel, sand, single track, grass and other rough conditions. There are amish buggies using the trail so watch out for them.
It starts at MM21 in Sand Lake and pavement picks up on the south side of Grand Rapids. We took almost 4 hours to do that stretch with our loaded bikes, a dog trailer and stopping for lunch. The next day we rode from Paris to Cadillac and back to our campsite. There is 10 miles of gravel from the north side of Reed City (MM64) to 3 miles south of Leroy (MM74). From Leroy to Cadillac it is beautifully paved with some very pleasant scenery which you can actually enjoy since you arent focused on the trail. If the museum in Tustin is open its worth a stop. its an old potato warehouse and the folks there were so friendly. There is an unbelievable amount of stuff in the museum. We stopped for lunch in downtown Cadillac that had sidewalk seating since we had Yoo-Hoo. We heard from some other riders that the Depot restaurant was also very nice . The third day it was back to our truck in Grand Rapids.

We had mixed feelings. We drove 5 hours to ride this trail not paying close enough attention to the description and thinking unpaved as in crushed stone. We like to ride long trails to make it worth the drive and the 93 miles was part of the attraction. We are glad we rode it but probably wont do it again unless its better surfaced. Im not sure I would recommend it to friends to drive that far. We were hoping since its a State Park it would have been a little better shape. So the beginning, middle and end of the trail is very nice but the two unpaved sections are tedious, tiring and just not a lot of fun.

Pleasant ride

August, 2017 by lmuczynski

Not hilly, great parking near the center of the trail, few intersections

Fred Meijer White Pine Trail State Park

Needs improvement 4/5 stars...

August, 2017 by gracemarie2009

I have enjoyed the bike ride from Big Rapids to Reed City and over to Evert for 10 years . South of BR however has loose gravel, rounded stone that does not pack well and makes peddling a tour bike impossible and a mountain bike very unplesant. The old flat RR bedding ( ballast I think) provided a firm base.
The Rockford to Comstock Park is really nice. Fun way to go to White Caps games !
We are missing huge commercial potential by not paving the entire trail and leaving it just short of 100 miles. Events like Century BIKE rides offer real challenges, 1/2 Century rides, etc.

Pere Marquette State Trail

built for speed

August, 2017 by sharonedgar

I biked for Farwell to Sears and back was time constrained so couldn't go further. I have to agree with the other reviewer that it is a pretty boring trail but really good pavement conditions and easy road crossings and if you just want to bike fast and getting some miles it's perfect. Warning in15 miles I did (one way) not a single public restroom. But I stopped about a mile and a half short of Sears so maybe they were bathrooms there

Muskegon Lakeshore Trail

Nice trail

August, 2017 by ezf140

Very nice trail along Muskegon Lake. After you pass the ferry dock, it does go out on the road past some old industrial sites. Not the prettiest and the road crossings can be a bit rough, but the reward at the end coming out to Lake Michigan is great. There are some sharp curves, so be careful around those.

go slow at the bridge

August, 2017 by stevej371

As Badh mentioned below..the 2X4 that was used to repair the small bridge just north of Cedar Springs, is a killer. Heading north, the leading edge of the bridge is the flat edge of said board. Anything over 10 mph, figure on damage to your bike rim.
And then, a few miles further, it's 2 track with Amish horse and buggy trail.

Pere Marquette State Trail

Great Trail

July, 2017 by garykliz

First time here on 7-29-17 and we rode it for 9 miles out of Clare. The trail was really well maintained and excellent for people with joint issues as it is mostly flat with gentle sloping grades at times. Will be back to ride more.

Betsie Valley Trail

Gorgeous

June, 2017 by jhejr83

An absolutely wonderful trail. Well kept and clean. Great for all ages.

Pere Marquette State Trail

Farwell to Lake Station

June, 2017 by karol_grapentine

My first experience on this trail, and I found it to be a gem! There's an incline most of the way from Farwell to Lake Station, but that made for an easy return trip! The trail goes through a heavily wooded area with notable wetlands and then pretty lakes. My husband and I were out fairly early in the morning and enjoyed seeing a lot of wildlife! I told him, "This could be my new favorite trail!"

There are no mile markers, but there were plenty of benches along the way and LOTS of natural beauty. In Farwell and Lake Station, there are some small businesses close to the trail too. We had a very nice ride and will definitely come back.

Rockford to Cadillac

June, 2017 by tgolsteyn

We rode from Rockford to Cadillac this past weekend. Beautiful weather and it's great on the paved portions but the unpaved is brutal. Would never do it again without the whole trail being paved.

Muskegon Lakeshore Trail

Lovely Ride

June, 2017 by rkuzmanic

I couldn't find the nature preserve to park at, so I ended up parking at the Fisherman's campground. Ample parking there. It cut of a mile or 2, but there was an outhouse there and an information hut with a very helpful person. The ride itself was quiet with many views of the Muskegon Lake. It does go on the street for a mile or so, but there is a designated bike lane that felt very safe. The beach at the end-Pierre Marquette Beach is beautiful! The water was cold and refreshing...that's Lake Michigan!

William Field Memorial Hart-Montague Trail State Park

6/2/17 Ride

June, 2017 by jillzamo

Rode from the campgrounds in Montague just past New Era and it was a very quiet, peaceful ride. Surface was very smooth and flat and would be great for inline skating. Saw only several people and all have a smile or wave. Occasional flowers and cat tails along the way made the trail very pretty. Loved it!
