Saginaw Valley Rail Trail

Fun Trail

May, 2022 by racing1on1

I have started at Stroebel Road and made it all the way into St. Charles, I have enjoy the wildlife, scenery, and the opportunity to utilize benches that are along the trail to rest. The trailer shelf is pretty maintained. Only minor blemishes. In recent years there are newer pathways that branch off the main trail that will go towards Thomas Township.

Bay-Zil Rail Trail

Great for scenery

May, 2022 by racing1on1

I love this trail is 7 miles long. The longer the better in my opinion. While prior reviews have mentioned some upkeep that needs to be done (not completed as of May 2022) they are minor blemishes in my opinion. This trail offers fantastic scenery, wildlife, and if you’re fortunate enough you’ll see the big ships on the river, along with plans taking off and landing at James Clements Airport. I hope there is progress made to link this trail to the Zilwaukee pathway.

Zilwaukee Pathway

Nice Starter Trail

May, 2022 by racing1on1

Nice little trail for walking, biking and online skating. Clean with little elevation changes.

Rail Trail over the years

April, 2022 by davidgail

This trail is maintained by Saginaw County Parks Dept:
https://www.saginawcounty.com/departments/parks-recreation/parks-trails/saginaw-valley-rail-trail/
Very well taken care of!
The horse path hops on and off the main trail at road crossings and bridges.
Horse path is kept cleared sporadically - but I have never seen it used, nor evidence of use (road-apples).
A great trail for all ages!

Thomas Township Trail

Nice trail for biking or walking!

April, 2022 by davidgail

I have started this trail at Swan Creek High School parking (when school is out), at Shields Road by the Township Police Dept, and also from the Saginaw Valley Rail Trail.
All paved, wide, well-maintained, easy going, nice variety of scenery along the way.
Turning onto this from Saginaw Valley Rail Trail is a nice addition to that experience.
And a 1-mile ride down Ohern Road gets you to Roberts Community Park, another pleasant location.
Lots of open riding with only a little shade, can get hot in the summer sun.
You may get a chance to see a snapping turtle along the ditch in Kluck Nursery property.
Crossing M-46 at Meijer's in Shields can be a little nerve-wracking!

Fred Meijer Heartland Trail

Very Nice

November, 2021 by sarahibrandl

November 2021 rode from Alma out 15 miles and back. Parked in city parking at very start of trail. Parking there a short ride on trail crossing a few easy to cross streets till reaching College area where the main trail opens up. We saw parking in College is where most parked. Heavy leaf cover this time of year, so could not see trail most of time, trail had a few areas of bumps. Over all the ride was smooth. Will ride rest soon.

Fred Meijer Heartland Trail

Bay-Zil Rail Trail

Nice Bird viewing in wetlands

Very enjoyable ride, nice trail.

Fred Meijer Clinton-Ionia-Shiawassee Trail

Fred Meijer CIS Rail Trail

October, 2021 by laculver7

From Owosso to Ionia it’s a great riding trail. Love the mix of shade, sun, wild life. The small towns along the way offer pit stops (Trail heads) for food, water and restrooms. Very surprised it’s not busier, also kinda glad! More connections to come to other trails will be added bonus.

Harger Line Rail-Trail

The Best Rollerskating Path

September, 2021 by nikianarchy

The smoothest, cleanest pathway for skating with minimal traffic crossings. Plus all the people here are the kindest and we have the best dogs of any path. Beautiful abundant nature.

Pere Marquette Rail-Trail

beautiful day and great trail from North Bradley to Claire

September, 2021 by patricia.l.glasgow

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

Fred Meijer Flat River Trail

Short but surprising

September, 2021 by joe maitner

Biked the Flat River Trail on a Sunday afternoon in August. We found the Tower Park parking lot easily and with a little search the trailhead across from the parking lot. In short order we were biking along the Flat River and had to watch carefully for the Trail markers. The newly paved sections and the cut off to another trail was a bit confusing but with a brief backtrack we continued on the trail. About two thirds of the way we were a bit confused again as we approached some busy roads just passed the high school. We guessed right and found the tunnel under the busy road and continued on...this led to the surprising portion of the trail....a few hills leading to the trail around Baldwin and Manoka lakes (both very small)....and with a bit of coaching from other bikers we were able to stay with the trail and find the parking lot. It was a short trail but very worthwhile. Beautiful scenery, curves, a few doable hills and a few surprises. Loved itl
