beautiful day and great trail from North Bradley to Claire

The trail has many restrooms and is in good shape. Beautiful trees and farms along the way.

Avoidable Accident

September, 2021 by janehdegroot

The ride from Comstock Park to Rockford and back again last Thursday was positively delightful, including an outstanding lunch, until about the final 500 yards when one of our six-person party collided with a green cement post meant to keep the automated vehicles off the bike path. The post won. Short of publicizing her gruesome photo a day after the accident, the facts are that she suffered a gouge in her forehead (yes, she was wearing a helmet!), two black eyes, scraped upper lip, a torn fingernail and a wrenched knee. After spending a couple of hours waiting in urgent care, she was told she needed to go to the actual ER in order to have x-rays on her head, as is protocol for those with potential concussions on patients over 65. About eight hours later she finally came home.

This all might have been avoided had the posts been painted the usual vibrant yellow or orange color as the green blended into the background of the landscape.

Our group plans to use that same bike path again, but will caution people as we navigate through those posts. Pay attention to the ride and not to the scenery!

Pere Marquette Rail-Trail

Fast and Smooth Ride

September, 2021 by aspergers

I rode the 30 miles from Clare to Midland and I was impressed by the condition of the trail. Sections are even sealed blacktop. All the cracks had filler and the vegetation was mowed at least 3 feet off the trail. I left the trail around Sanford as the trail is closed due to flood damage resulting from two private dams which failed, sending millions on gallons of water through the area. It was easy enough to ride on the shoulder of Saginaw Rd for a bit until the trail opened back up. I enjoyed this ride.

Traverse Area Recreation and Transportation Trail (TART)

TART is a great connector trail

September, 2021 by rsiemeck_tl

Asphalt trail that is very flat and connects to Leelanau trail. It runs right behind the Traverse City state park (Campground) and has good signage. Follow arrows on ground and signs. From campground you can go east 2.7 miles to Acme or west 6 miles to Leelanau trail.

Geese...

August, 2021 by gzymmb1

I ride this trail from the ball park to Sand Lake frequently, but no more. When passing thru Rockford, the geese poo makes this beautiful trail unpleasant to ride. And it's not just a little amount. It gets all over your bike and all over you. I'll switch to another trail even if I have to travel to get to it.

Betsie Valley Trail

Pleasant ride and change of pace

August, 2021 by bruceamiller@comcast.net

In August a friend and I rode 10 miles from Beulah to Frankfort. and 10 back. The first 3 miles are decent crushed limestone; the remainder decent pavement. You ride near water most of the way (lake and river). Good for families. No special sights along the way. Several coffee shops / restaurants in Beulah. Enjoyed sitting in the park by the marina in Frankfort.

Pere Marquette State Trail

Evart to Clare

August, 2021 by ielpmike

Evart to Clare is one of the nicest stretches I’ve ever ridden. The trail is smooth and the scenery is beautiful. Anything west of Evart is barely rideable, with constant cracks and bumps. There wasn’t a lot of shade but there were plenty of places to stop along the way and cool off, including several bike friendly stores.

Pere Marquette Rail-Trail

Needs some updates but still a beautiful ride

July, 2021 by schulzda74

The perfect distance for an enjoyable day ride with several areas to stop. Several miles have become rough pavement simply due to age. The dam destruction in Sanford didn’t help either.

Traverse Area Recreation and Transportation Trail (TART)

NICE TRAIL, BUT

July, 2021 by wkanouse

My wife and I rode the trail this morning starting in Acme, going into Traverse City and then connecting with the Leelanau Trail. Trail was not hard to follow until we enter Traverse City. Trail markings were non-existent, and there are numerous branches. No markings on the pavement and needless to say we lost the main trail. Took some time and assistance from local riders we were able to finally find our way. This trail needs better signage.

Reed City to Leroy

July, 2021 by stevej371

Biked this section of the WP trail a couple days ago.
The section (.4 mile) of unpaved trail near Ashton, was being surveyed.
One of them said the culvert under the trail is due to be improved and the rest of the trail paved...in the near future.
Already some heavy equipment parked nearby.

Betsie Valley Trail

nice ride

July, 2021 by bhawkllc

We started in Frankfort , park behind the police station. Its a great ride from Frankfort to Beulah about half way. The path up to this point is very good. Stop a Beulah for a break and go across the street to two restaurants and get some great eats. The bike path after this point gets a rougher larger rocks and and uneven surfaces. Note that if its been raining a lot this trail tends to flood by the lakes , there are detours you can take to go around.
Enjoy

William Field Memorial Hart-Montague Trail State Park

Hart-Montague Trail

May, 2021 by joelschekman

It’s true what other people said , the trail is incredibly smooth except for a few hundred yards at the beginning in Montague. Also stop in at the Country Dairy farm about half way along the trail between Shelby and New Era. Great food and restaurant and good place to rest for a bit . Definitely the smoothest trail I’ve ever been on
