Falling Waters Trail

Bike Ride Jun 12 2021

June, 2021 by michaelmrowe65

Just recently moved to MI and I have always been a avid bike rider. I seen some incredible parks with bike trails, and this park I have to say was one of the best. The trail is very nice and very scenic not to mention the cleanliness of the trail is excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed the morning bike ride. I only went 8 miles out of the 10 miles and turned around. My next trip I will go the entire way.

Kiwanis Trail (MI)

Rate it 4.5 for maintenance, but 5 overall.

June, 2021 by lisalemble

As others have said, this flat 16 miles is great for a leisurely ride or to work towards getting back in shape. We saw about 20 kids and adults walking and biking on a June Tuesday morning. Lots of shade. The northern 3/4 mile section needs crack filling soon; vegetation is growing in them and will cause more damage.

I am grateful for beautiful trails like this and the organizations that provide benches and gazebos along the way for the public to use.

Kal-Haven Trail Sesquicentennial State Park

could be a jewel-but-it’s not good

May, 2021 by chaspenny

We rode 5 miles eastbound from Bloomingdales and the trail was rideable but in need of maintenance. The restroom at the Bloomingdales trailhead was the worst I have seen in. Any Steve we have ridden in. The next day we rode west from Grand Junction to South Haven. Rideable yes but we could not take our eyes off the trail path because of the vary soft and deep limestone powder in many areas. There were at least 2 spots that looked like someone took Nasty

Mike Levine Lakelands Trail State Park

Great Rail Trail

May, 2021 by ceanahikari

This has become a decidedly favorite weekend trail of mine. We see a wide range of bikers on this trail -- from families biking with kids, to hand cyclists and recumbent bikers, and to even a full on peloton. This trail offers a little something for cyclists of any age and level. We also see lots of runners/walkers as well as a handful of roller skaters. The trails are nice and wide and there's ample space to pass.

We start near the eastern terminus of the trail in a lot in Hamburg. The trail starts off paved -- there's some bumps and ruts in the asphalt, but for the most part it's nice and smooth. The path does cross roads a bit -- but other than these crossings there is no having to deal with cars or traffic. After some point the path does turn into crushed limestone -- here is where you'll run into horses on the trail. Just make sure to know how to pass/approach them before hand and you'll be all set. The trail goes right by the Pinckney equestrian trail entrance, so on nice days there can be quite a few riders out there. My favorite part is when the path turns into the crushed limestone -- this is where it starts to get a bit more secluded and the scenery is oh so nice (lots of farmland and animals to see off the trail).

This trail goes through several towns, so if you need to stop for bathroom breaks (there's port-a-potties or vault restrooms at each of the main trail parking lots), or grab a snack or drink from a local gas station, you're all set. Most of the main trailhead parking lots along this trail also have picnic tables, so you can sit down to eat.

In Pinckney there's an ice cream place right off the trail -- Cap'n Frosty Ice Cream -- perfect for either a mid-ride or post-ride ice cream. There's also a restaurant also right off the trail with bike parking -- Zukey Lake Tavern.

Overall I give this trail a solid 5 stars. Nicely maintained, great mileage, nice scenery and fun stops along the way to make an adventure out of it.

Baw Beese Trail

Poor Ride

May, 2021 by miketraceyclark

Pretty much like what other reviews are showing... not maintained whatsoever!! Was much worse through the Jonesville portion of the ride. Maybe most frustrating was how poorly the route was marked out. With a little work it could be a nice bike ride route. It passes right by a couple of places that serve food and drinks, seems these businesses would try to take advantage of this and do something to draw people in

Martin Luther King Equality Trail

needs resurfacing

May, 2021 by wilds63

This trail is a short distance from my home. Traveled it for almost 20 years. Badly needs resurfacing. I hope they don’t just let it go. Still able to ride just painful on the spine when you hit those “speed bumps” every few yards. Love the nice little connector from the path to Kibby rd. Not sure what they named that little section.

Falling Waters Trail

Fast & Flat.

May, 2021 by wilds63

I’ve been riding & walking this trail for years. (Even before it was paved) Well maintained with benches & trash cans. It’s pretty flat making for a fast ride.

Falling Waters Trail

Wonderful Ride!

May, 2021 by littlehern88

We parked in the middle and rode to the Jackson West end and had an amazing view of the water. Trail is well maintained and wide enough to pass.

Border-to-Border Trail

Note RE ypsi/EMU

May, 2021 by 5bj2qkr9ds

For those heading east from Ann Arbor, this map and local b2b marker for the area around ypsi and emu is poorly mapped and labeled. When you pass the emu stadium, map to frog island park and go through the emu camps.

Mike Levine Lakelands Trail State Park

What a Great Ride!

May, 2021 by skatergirl1984

Today I rode from the Hawkins Rd parking lot (put 5998 Hawkins Rd, Jackson into your GPS to find it) to Stockbridge and back. What a great ride! About 24 miles round trip. There is a vault toilet (clean) in Stockbridge and a porta-potty at Hawkins Rd. Just picnic tables in Munith. This portion of the trail is crushed limestone, but it is well-packed for easy pedaling.

Lansing River Trail

not as nice as it could be

April, 2021 by glittle37

I did some of this trail yesterday 4/14/21. The trail could be beautiful if it wasn’t so beat up in spots. Huge pot holes and construction with access bridge closed and detours that takes you on busy streets!

Battle Creek Linear Park

I used to ride this trail several times a week about 20 years ago. I rode the section from Jackson Street to Fort Custer State Park on Sunday. The trail is in such bad shape. Very disappointed.
