Paint Creek Trail (MI)

Great!

July, 2019 by trendedys

Nice trail. Along the way there is a Cider place to get food and donuts. Many nice views of rivers/ponds. Many places to rest. Only downside is that when I went- the trail was shut down in the middle.

Metro Parkway Trail

Needs some work on the section we road

July, 2019 by jschihl

(Maybe its not fair to rate this trail as we did not ride the whole distance) We started at 16mi and Schoenherr but eventually the bumps got too annoying so we turned around when we hit Moravian (we took the subdivision road that runs parallel to avoid the bumps).

Bicentennial Park Pathway

Beautiful trail.

Fred Meijer Clinton-Ionia-Shiawassee Trail

Great Trail

July, 2019 by aparker2852

Rode 50 mile on the Fred Meijer Clinton-Ionia-Shiawassee Trail. I started in Ovid and turned around in Pewamo. The trail had about 1-2 miles paved through Ovid, St. John, Fowler, and Pewamo the remained of the trail was gravel, crushed lime stone. The trail condition was good and overall smooth without a lot of pot holes and ruts. Even with the overall good condition of the trail the 40 plus miles of gravel was pretty punishing by the end of the ride. One small area outside of Ovid appeared to have very little gravel coverage and may present a problem when wet...potential muddy area. The weather was great for a ride the scenery was great the trail was pretty much through farm lands lots of fields of corn and wheat with old barns and farm houses along the way. My bike was a gravel bike with 38mm tires.

Lakelands Trail State Park

Great Trail

July, 2019 by aparker2852

Rode the trail late June 2019 starting in Hamburg out18 miles and back just short of Stockbridge. The trail was in great condition even the gravel section. There was no ruts or pot holes that caused any discomfort on my bike. I was riding a gravel bike with 38mm tires. At the turn around point I did start see more loose pea size gravel I believe is due to the recent grading process on the road and had not packed down yet. The temperature was 87 and sunny but with all the tree canopy along the trail it was a pleasant ride.

Paint Creek Trail (MI)

Bridge Out

July, 2019 by jschihl

We started at the Rochester Municipal Park and made it to Dutton Road where it was posted the that the bridge was out so the trail was closed. I wish there was an app, like Waze, for bike trials so we could be alerted for things like this.

Genesee Valley Trail

June, 2019 by bendarnell42

The trail has recently been extended and now continues through Chevy Commons into the city. A very nice trail that goes behind but also hides the urbanized parts of Flint. Very flat and smooth and fairly well maintained.

Bay County Riverwalk/Railtrail System

Bay County River Walk/Railtrail

June, 2019 by jcf3027

I’m very disappointed with the maintenance program for the Bay County rail trail/river walk. The surfaces are almost unridable in several areas for bicycles. Several areas are in desperate need of resurfacing. Some areas are like a washboard, some areas have rough seam cracks about every 20 ft. And some areas are just in need of a good cleaning. In the Marquette St area the ride surface is ridiculously rough. I’m afraid I’ll break my bike in this area. The sidewalk is to narrow and close to the buildings to safely ride a bicycle. I don’t like to complain this much but the trails are a beautiful system and if they aren’t maintained they’ll be lost to the same degree as the roads and highways in Michigan. If you take care of them, people will come to the area to ride, walk or just enjoy the trails. Please!

Clinton River Trail

Nice trail more gravel than asphalt

June, 2019 by cmaday

Beautiful ride along river saw many kayakers below with just enough canopy of trees to keep trail from getting to hot. Many scenic points with benches to rest. I pick up trail at Opdyke and rode out n 9 miles. Slight down grade was more noticeable on return between grade & gravel made return a bit slower . Saw deer off trail and plenty of bunnies. Wonderful quiet trail with fragrance of wild flowers. Look forward to entering trail other points ¿¿

Lansing River Trail

Great trails Great Ride!!

This trail has been updated and resurfaced in many areas making it a much smoother ride. The scenery is fantastic! You may stop for ice cream in old town and again at the MSU dairy store on campus at MSU. There are several parks along the way to stop and picnic (if you didn’t pack food there are plenty of great places along the way) or let the kids including yourself to play. What more can you ask for on a beautiful day, being outside is the place to be!!! This is definitely a trail worth riding if you live in the area or are visiting.

From the parking lot to the park and then all the way to the deck overlooking where the river flows into Lake St. Clair is about 5 miles.

need fat tires, west of Pinckney. Area between Gregory , Stockbridge, and Munith is being upgraded now, but doesn't look like pavement is being installed. Better plan on riding with fat tires
