Vassar Rail Trail

Beautiful and full of wildlife

November, 2016 by morgane1216

I run this trail because I live walking distance to it. I've ran across many little critters and even a small herd of deer that I almost ran right into! Haha.
Beautiful trail, especially in the fall. Colors every where. The trail even has mile markers painted on it so I know how far I've gone. There are 2 parks in it's span, benches along it, and bathrooms to the front.

What an experience!!!

September, 2016 by jbfred69

What a great trail system you have built. Being from the Kalamazoo area and loving to ride in different areas of our beautiful state We were very pleased with this trail. Access is very easy to find, condition of the trail is well maintained with brush cut back and surface paved. We rode from Reed City to Midland and back the next day. WHAT A PLEASURABLE EXPERIENCE.. We'll be back. Fred

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.

Pere Marquette Rail-Trail

Great trail - great milkshake!

July, 2016 by alanmrrs0

It is possible to ride the 70 miles east from Reed City to Midland, Michigan on a paved rail-trail – first on the Pere Marquette state trail, then (Clare to Midland) on the Pere Marquette Rail-Trail. The day I did it was just warm enough (50s F) to be very comfortable, as well as sunny and calm. Rail-trails do not have significant hills, so this is a low-key ride. For the first 40 miles – until the town of Clare – I saw 4 other trail users. Neat and tidy farms, small towns, wetlands populated by redwing blackbirds, geese, and turtles drift by with ease; a truly idyllic ride, and typical of northern Michigan.

Although the various online descriptions warn you that the Pere Marquette State trail ends on the outskirts of Clare, they then say that the 1.5 miles through Clare are on well-marked roads that take you to the Pere Marquette Trail linking Clare with the city of Midland. It is true that the roads are nice enough, and the drivers are pretty considerate, but the signs from trailhead to trailhead through the town are not obvious, and I was thankful that my 'phone seemed to know the way. It’s not complicated, but it is not well-marked!

Clare itself is a pretty little town with interesting-looking small shops and quiet streets. If the trail from Reed City to Clare is well-made and well-maintained, the trail from Clare to Midland is like a perfectly kept freeway, wide and smooth, and only when I neared Midland did the trail traffic increase (a dozen or so other users!). By the time I reached the Midland City limits I was desperate for a serious espresso, and I stopped at the Cottage Creamery – right on the trail. My plan was a 4-shot latte, but the black raspberry milkshake (a Michigan specialty?) snagged me. I’m not sure if it was the endorphins or the quality of the ingredients, but that was the best milkshake I can remember having – ever – and when I discovered the chocolate chip mother-lode at the bottom of the cup I was pretty sure that I had made it to heaven.

Pere Marquette State Trail

Reed City to Baldwin

June, 2016 by ljwerner

This trail is often confused with the Pere Marquette Rail-Trail and you can get additional reviews for this trail there.

About 1.5 miles west of the depot in Reed City the asphalt ends and turns to some type of crushed stone. Could only manage another mile past that before turning around. The surface has loose stones and is pitted from all the horses that have been using the trail. That section is no better than ballast. I don't know how much of the trail the horses have been on and it would probably improve after that. My bike has 38C tires and it was slow going, a mountain bike would be a lot better.

I rode the trail in 2014 shortly after it was improved and I would have given it 3 stars back then. I wanted to ride it again thinking it would be harder packed after a couple of years. This surface is a waste of money and screened limestone should be the only surface used after asphalt.

It's a big disappointment to have this section when the rest of the trail from Reed City east is 5 stars.

Pere Marquette Rail-Trail

Trail Confusion

June, 2016 by ljwerner

Just want to clarify that a lot of the reviews for this trail are actually for the Pere Marquette State Trail. They are separated by a 1.5 mile gap in Clare. From Clare east it is the Rail-Trail and from Clare West it is the State Trail, and combined it is a total of 83 miles.

Saginaw Valley Rail Trail

lots of shade

June, 2016 by dianne king

A beautiful morning for a ride ... lots of shade to shield one from the sun. Benches for resting, mini-parks to enjoy, even several picnic tables along the way.

Saginaw Valley Rail Trail

Great Rail Trail in the Saginaw Area!

June, 2016 by Pryder

Brought my road bike with me from Florida on a trip to visit family in Saginaw. Used the TrailLink App to find rail trails located in central Michigan. This trail was located within 10 minutes of where I was staying. Unfortunately, the freezing/thawing effects in this part of the world usually results in paved surfaces degrading fairly quickly. The folks in charge of this trail have done a wonderful job keeping the trail surface repaired and smooth.

The trail transitions between farm fields and woods throughout it's length. There is adequate signage that will be much appreciated for first time trail users. You will have to slow down and/or stop when the trail crosses roadways. While there are no restrooms/water at the eastern terminus of the trail, there are facilities and another parking area about 3 miles up the trail. Restrooms/water are also located at the western terminus of the trail at Lumberjack Park in St. Charles ...a distance of about 9.5 miles from end to end. Road bikes can ride the trail from one end to the other and back in a bit over an hour. It will take folks using mountain/cross bikes a bit longer. If you enjoy riding or hiking, you need to check this trail out. I don't think you will be disappointed.
