Fall ride with forests and wetland views

Nicely maintained trail with benches along the way. Lots of geocaches along this trail too.

Saginaw Valley Rail Trail

Nice trail

Great ride today. Rode the entire trail and back. Terrific surface overall. Tony’s in St Charles had good chili and Italian bread

Bay-Zil Rail Trail

Did this trail for the first time today. Very nice, but short. We started from the parking lot of Ray's Bike Shop. Out to the end of the trail and back to Ray's was just under 13 miles.

Fred Meijer Heartland Trail

Nice ride through the country

July, 2023 by 13leeannadams

Started at Greenville West/Washington intersection—rode about 8 miles and then came back. Enjoyed the path, the trees, the wildflowers, and a couple of farms—but not so much stopping for so many road crossings.

Pere Marquette Rail-Trail

great trail.

July, 2023 by dan.allen.50552

We rode from N. Bradley to Midland and return. Lots to see. Midland did a great job being bike friendly. The 14 foot paved trail is great ( there are some cracks that could be filled). Great bathrooms well maintained.

Bay-Zil Rail Trail

Nice trail but...

July, 2023 by recon161829

Have seen many hunters along this trail. It adjoins a lot of private property where people hunt and discharge firearms. I would strongly suggest you stay only on the asphalt trail and do not venture off it. It is very nice though.

Pere Marquette Rail-Trail

Generally this is a nice, flat ride. Had lunch at the unique Leah's Corner Cafe. Enjoyable and pleasant ride with decent shade.

Pere Marquette State Trail

Reed City to Baldwin

June, 2023 by rez.highlands

I could find neither a recent review, nor anyone who had recently completed this segment, so I decided to bike it myself and report.
This is not paved, and the crushed limestone requires a mountain bike, or fat tires at the least. I used my standard mountain bike and still had considerable fishtailing in areas. Old reviews speak to horse damage; I saw very little evidence of this.
Reed City to Chase is the worst segment, but there is a very nice tavern just south of the trail here that can raise your spirits, and recharge you to keep going west. From Chase the trail is wider, more level, and more amenable to higher speeds. The scenery is primarily US-10 to the north, and tertiary conifer forests to the south, with some stretches completely surrounded by forests.
I saw exactly zero fellow riders or walkers on the trail during my entire foray. Next time I do this route, I would be more comfortable with at least one companion rider.

Bay County Riverwalk/Bangor Rail Trail

not marked well

May, 2023 by yoopersteve89

This is one of my local trails so I know the route, but I can see how a new rider would get lost because it isn’t marked well at all. I like to park at the trailhead on Young’s Ditch over by Meijer and ride the city loop, then I take the trail up to the state park to ride the trails through the marsh. It totals roughly 30 miles since the trail up to the State Park is an out-and-back trail. Im giving it 3 stars for the public since it isn’t marked well, but I would personally give it 5 stars since I know the route…
