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??

Hart/Montague - William Field

October, 2016 by trimike06

My first ride on this trail was shortly after it was introduced and was called The Hart/Montague rail trail.

Since that time I've ridden many thousands of miles on the White Pine trail from Grand Rapids to Sand Lake and also the Musketawa trail from Grand Rapids to Muskegon.

The Hart/Montague - William Field trail after it was redone is absolutely PERFECT rolling and puts other trails on notice that they need REPAIR...

I believe this was the first paved trail in Michigan and over the years it became obvious. It was narrower than most trails and there was a lot of root damage and snowmobile wear...

I tell my buddies who ride the trails in GR, they have to experience Hart/Montague - William Field as it's smooth as butter the entire route.

Now if we can get White Pine and Musketawa redone!!

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.

William Field Memorial Hart-Montague Trail State Park

Wonderful ride!

September, 2016 by lindatap

We parked on a side street in New Era, midpoint of the trail. A local suggested we go north toward Hart, so we did. Great ride with wonderful scenery. Not much change in grade. On the way back we stopped at The Farm Store. Quaint with farm tours for purchase and ice cream and other food items for sale.

Smooth ride

September, 2016 by roddyville65

Although the trail never really takes you to a place with a WOW factor, it does offer scenery and mostly a quiet ride...except for the highway noise from time to time. I rode from Montague to Hart and then on back and up to the White River lighthouse which is a nice finish to the ride...sunset at the lighthouse watching the sailboats. On the return from the lighthouse, I was lucky to see the Northern Lights over the Whitehall Landing area...awesomely beautiful!!

Plenty of stops along the way to fuel up the body,lots of nice people along the trail, too!

Will Pedal for Ice Cream

September, 2016 by lisajarr14

We rode on a Saturday and really didn't see many other bikers. The weather was good even though it had rained that morning leaving some of the shade areas still wet with debris. We had a hard time finding where to park in New Era so we ended up driving to Hart, and had some trouble there as well. Signage is lacking. Look for the police station and you'll find a great parking area across the street with a nice restroom. We rode about 11 miles to the Country Dairy and my oh my was it ever worth it! They have the best butter pecan ice cream I've ever eaten and their chocolate milk is divine. Loved the trail and the beautiful scenery. Very quiet and peaceful with beautiful orchards along the way.

Pere Marquette State Trail

Great Ride

August, 2016 by harold.jones

My girlfriend and I rode west from Clare to Evert and enjoyed it tremendously. The road surface was smooth and free of joint cracks. The scenery was above par...lots of open meadows and heavily shaded forest sections of the trail. We stopped in Evert for a bite in a local diner then watched the kayaking activities along the river. I will be completing this ride on into Reed City and Baldwin before the end of summer with my hybrid along the gravel roads west of Reed City.

Tustin to Cadillac

Parked S of the Pine River Museum in Tustin (worth a look if you're interested in area history) and rode to Cadillac and back. Path is great and scenery makes for a really enjoyable ride.

Montague To Shelby

July, 2016 by jack47l

Awesome trail. Very smooth all the way through as far as I can tell. Every town you pass through has a nice staging area with a pavilion. Initial stretch from Montague to Rothbury is great with woods on both sides. After that it opens up to beautiful farmland all the way to Shelby. Awesome trail.

White Pine Trail State Park

Belmont to Morley

July, 2016 by jack47l

Rode from Belmont to Morley today, a round trip of about 60 miles. The first 3.9 miles to Rockford are excellent. Fast both ways, and great scenery. Please not as of July 2016 that a section of this trail may be closed for repairs. I rode on a Saturday and was able to get through, but may be closed on weekdays, im not 100% sure. Rockford is probably the nicest town I have visited, with eateries and ice cream right off the trail. Also was unable to locate the public restrooms in Rockford, but I know they are somewhere. After Rockford, the next 7.4 miles to Cedar Springs aren't as great. Right out of Rockford, it is very windy and lots of bumps that can really wreck havoc on road bikes with skinny tires (luckily I ride a Trek hybrid). A few factories along this stretch have a putrid smell, but it passes after 30 seconds of riding past. Cedar Springs has a nice staging area with main street just a street down. The 5.4 mile ride to Sand Lake is nice, flat and well paved. Sand Lake is a quaint little town. Gas station and cafe just off the trail. North of Sand Lake the asphalt ends. the 7 miles to Howard City are manageable. Most of it is two track gravel. A half mile paved section through Howard City is a welcome relief. North of Howard City is difficult at times. Sandy spots on this section will have your tires flailing and you threatening to ride the adjacent road. My advice on these sandy parts would be to ride on the far right of the trail. The sandy parts use an excess amount of energy for long rides. Also yes, horses sometimes can be found on this stretch illegally, saw evidence with tracks and poop. Morley is a welcome sight after a long ride from Howard City. A nice pavilion is available, and I even was able to shoot a couple baskets on a hoop near the trail as a break from riding (a ball was left out, not sure if this is all the time or if I just was lucky.) Everyone on the trail was nice, and understood biking courtesy. Great trail for all riders.

White Pine Trail State Park

Full trail is easily doable.

July, 2016 by vandamer

I rode the entire trail July 26, 2016 from Cadillac to Belmont, getting off for the night, and continuing the next day to Comstock Park to connect with the Musketawa Trail. The unpaved sections were definitely slower going and I could see that the section from Big Rapids to Howard City could be tough slugging during a rainy time, as mentioned by the May 2016 reviewer. However, I found only minor challenges, such as loose gravel before and after road crossings, but never bad enough to force me off my bike. I would recommend something with a little bigger than the standard 700x23mm road bike tires for the unpaved portions. I have 700 x 40mm tires, a 12x32 cassette with triple chain rings and was carrying full panniers loaded with tent, sleeping bag, food, clothes, etc. It was a relatively easy ride for this 72 year old.
