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
Rode this trail in May, 2021 and found it to be beautiful. Started near Whitehall road and went north. Trail is smooth and very scenic.
This is my favorite bike out. It is super smooth and well maintained.
We were excited to try this trail, and enjoy the views of both Lake Michigan & Lake Muskegon. We started from Beachwood Park, and took the Boardwalk Loop to connect to the trail. We were only a few miles in before discovering the trail was closed. There were no suggested detours, and heading north, we could find no way back to the trail. On the way back we rode the boardwalk - scenic , but very short ride.
Starting at the end of the Musketawa trail that is a true rail to trail, this follows a rail bed for less than a mile. The next couple of miles are along side a rail bed but go up an down at their own pace. Cross under the highway and you get a long down hill winding back up to 3 mile road. Next couple of miles are on concrete along 3 mile road with hills up and down. Completed in 2020 the last section is a twisting down hill to west river drive. Overall a great trail but be ready to climb hold
Previous reviewer had it pretty accurate for the Lowell to Belding stretch. Paved in the cities, leads to hard-pack (like crushed gravel/old asphalt but highly compressed) with some dirt mixed in. Mtb bikes, hybrids and gravel bikes will not have any problems here; I rode an average 15MPH from 4 Mile (Lowell side) up to north of Belding and back on a gravel bike, very few soft spots and they were marked for repair. And I'm a larger guy, but no worries about tires. Land around the trails was beautiful!
I run on this path and really enjoy it. It is all uphill to the library then sort of flattens out a bit. The run/ride back down is much quicker. It seems very safe.
This is one of the area’s earliest rail to trail conversion. It is used as a snowmobile trail in the winter. The age and winter use have taken a toll on the surface, especially at the bridges. Ride is straight and flat, mostly through open farm land. Nicest feature is bridge east of Ravens
I am uncertain how they get a trail this smooth! A very comfortable and pleasant ride - felt like it was majority downhill heading south. Connects to several trails and we ended at the beach on the Muskegon lake trail. Fantastic ride!
There is a small section that is damaged, but easy detouring is available and this small problem should not present any real reason to avoid the trail.
I rode the entirety of the trail today - which at 93 miles was a plenty. The scenery is beautiful, plenty of black squirrels (don’t have those in my neck of the woods), rabbits, and best of all - peace and quiet. Plenty of amenities along the way and you end at the lake - which is beautiful!
I have ridden this trail from Greenville to mile marker 94 it crosses several roads. it is mostly solid surface but there is loose gravel in places. There are benches every mile from Greenville to Belding if you need a break. from Belding to Lowell there are benches but they are around 3 miles apart. there are no real hills with only about 100ft of elevation change total. No place to camp as most of the land is private along the trail. The trail is owned by the state with maintenance provide by Ron Gunderson and the FMRVRT.org, He is on the trail daily his is the only vehicle you will likely see. He does a great job at maintaining the trail
