The Irons Area Tourist Association maintains 60 miles of groomed trails for snowmobiles and ATVs in the Manistee National Forest. For more information, contact the tourist association or the national...
Rode 20 miles roundtrip north from Big Rapids. Much of the trail is very rough and bumpy. I rode this section two years ago and it has clearly gotten worse. It is apparent that snowmobiles are causing damage as the worst of the pavement is found in open areas that get more sun. It is a very pretty section of trail with views of the river and a lot of deer in the fields. I hope DNR decides to invest in this trail's maintenance before it becomes unrideable for road bikes.
Very relaxing ride through the countryside
Biked this trail from Belmont entrance all the way past downtown Rockford, its just a straight away trail with no loops or anything. There was a lot of green scenery & neighborhoods to look at.
Rode this trail on 5/1/20 starting in Riverside park heading north. The trail itself is all paved and really smooth until it turns to grass/gravel right around Sand Lake. Even this part was not terrible but I turned around after 6-8 miles to head back towards the pavement.
The views through Rockford were quite amazing. The trail was also very busy upon return to GR and Rockford.
Highly recommend this trail for biking, walking, blading.
Road the entire trail and back on Sunday. It was awesome and well worth the 2 hour drive to get there. We will be back!
We parked at the Trailhead just South of Cadillac. Biked 2 miles into the city of Cadillac for lunch. There's also some great little shops in Cadillac.
Biked from Cadillac to LeRoy and back, approx 35 miles round trip.
Trail is very nicely paved asphalt through open areas and wooded areas.
Great ride on the Northern section of the trail.
Between Cadillac and LeRoy you will pass through Tustin which has a few small stores if you need anything.
Along the trail there are wooded sections of huge white pine trees.
As I am still a beginning cyclist with this being only my 3rd trail, I have come to appreciate the signage and directions each trail posts to help you stay on the right path. We parked at the Chippewa Nature Center & rode into Midland where the Tridge begins. As we came up to town, even though there was a slight detour due to construction on M20, it was well labeled. We rode to Sanford and found some special treats along the way. Looking like a scene from "Bridges of Madison County", I loved the different bridges along the way. At the Veteran's Memorial if you look closely, draped around the boot statue are the dog tags with a solider's picture on it which was such a nice tribute. We stopped at The Cottage Creamery which is accessible from the trail or Saginaw Rd. and tried the Apple Crisp ice cream. We got another treat as we sat on the back deck when the cute little chipmunks playfully ran around waiting for me to drop my ice cream. It is a pretty straight trail, but there is a lot to appreciate on this trail, and it's very bike friendly. I would like to finish the trail and head to Clare from Sanford. Walking or riding, people passing by are very friendly, and if you take a few breaks, there's definitely some awesome photo opportunities. Great Job Pere Marquette!! We'll be back for sure.
Parked in the town of Frankfort. There is a trailhead and lot one block from town, near the Police Station.
Yes there is a less than quarter of a mile section of the trail closed at Betsie Lake but you can go around the closed section. It is clearly marked and orange cones are out. Or you can just park at the lot in Elberta, which is across the road from Betsie Lake.
We biked from Frankfort to just beyond Beulah towards Thompsonville and back. Trail goes through wooded areas and open areas and wetlands. Gorgeous scenery.
The first 6 miles are flat and fast asphalt paved. Beyond M-115 it turns to gravel. Then the trail goes along Crystal Lake, which is beautiful. So the scenery makes up for the bumpy gravel section.
Just before Beulah you will come to Railroad Crossing Nature Area. Take the new wooden steps up to the overlook for a stunning view of Crystal Lake. On a sunny say, it's so clear the water looks blue.
In Beulah there are several places to eat. We parked our bikes in front of the restaurant and went inside and no one bothered them.
Beulah is biker friendly, there are bike lanes on the streets.
Heading out of Beulah towards Thompsonville the trail is gravel and bumpy. We didn't venture too far that way.
Well marked trail and trailheads and friendly people.
When in Frankfort, the trail ends 1/4 mile from the beach so take the trek to the beach and Lighthouse. Enjoy a gorgeous sunset.
In Frankfort there are several eateries and we left our bikes in front and no one bothered them.
All in all, a great trail offers nice stops. From Frankfort to just beyond Beulah and back was a 25 mile round trip.
Planned and completed the entire trail starting from Grand Rapids Comstock Park to downtown Cadillac and back, last weekend. Was riding a gravel bike and can say that the gravel sections including the paved were so much fun to ride on. That being said, there are some deeper gravel and sand sections, mainly in the smaller cities at the crosswalks, so beware. Not bad, but you’d want to keep your eyes out for it. A fair amount of restroom stops, if you plan them. Highly recommend stopping in Rockford for a brew. Abundant campgrounds in Cadillac. Very much a friend and family group area though, so a little clustered. Stayed the second night at the Young’s Lake Campground and I could not recommend more! Very friendly owners greet you at the front and it’s not too big. It has its own little beach right in front of a lake. Some winding roads to get there, but super worth it. The stars were amazing. Great trail throughout, but when they do get to paving the entire trail, I’m sure it’d make the distance a lot easier and more accessible (although I personally liked the silence with no one else around but nature) FYI saw some Blue Racer snakes on the trail near Cadillac. Nonpoisonous, but you’ll be surprised. Recommend friendsofthewhitepinetrail.com for more details along the trail.
Started in Traverse City- larked in the Tom’s Market parking lot. Trail is super smooth and very easy- elevation changes are not that bad. Trail is marked every mile and there are some vineyard views. You will cross 5 or so roads but traffic is very light. One location along the way- resident placed water, chairs, a chalk table and a bike pumps out for a fun rest area. The end takes you into Sutton bay and we negotiated the little town and got to a great view of Sutton’s bay- I will be back!
We easily found this trail on Waterfront in downtown Frankfort, but sadly the trail was closed due to flooding. On to Sleeping Bear Dunes Heritage trail.
This trail was a pretty big letdown. There were parts that were nice, but a majority was near pretty rundown neighborhoods. The south most part of the trail, close to Lake Cadillac was pretty nice. Rather than wasting your time on this trail, park at Lake Cadillac and walk along the sidewalk, or check out the sound garden.
