Betsie Valley Trail

Very nice for walking and biking. First aprox. 10 miles starting from Frankfort are well maintained and are good for regular bikes. The last half of the trail is only recommendable for mountain bikes.

Pere Marquette Rail Trail

Great Ride!

June, 2024 by kkacho04

Husband and I rode from Midland to Sanford and back. Smooth, flat ride. Shady areas to stop and bathrooms along the way. Stopped at Midland Brewing Company on our way back.(Had entry right off trail with bike racks!) It was a great ride!

Betsie Valley Trail

sparkling waters of Crystal Lake

June, 2024 by creischl_tl

Really nice trail—much of it along the water. About 50% shaded. We rode from Frankfort to about 3 miles beyond Beulah towards Thompsonville. We have 1.75 inch width wheels so crushed limestone and gravel two-track sections were not a problem. Asphalt section was remarkably smooth! Stopped at a small park with great shelter at the Beulah beach on the way back. Bring your swimsuit! This was about 24 miles round trip. Scenery was varied, and the trail was pleasantly curvy. Highly recommend!

Arcadia Marsh Trail

Nice boardwalk

May, 2024 by nllines_tl

This is a very nice walk, mostly on boardwalk Great birding opportunity. From the Arcadia /Rt 22 trailhead you can go about one-half mile then the trail is closed Apr 15 to Jul 15 to protect nesting habitat. Still a very lovely walk. You can enter from the St. Pierre Rd trailhead and go less than a quarter mile.

Walked/ran the trail over 4 days

May, 2024 by quietglow

I walked, and occasionally ran, the trial northbound over four days. This is easily one of the most beautiful rail trails I've ever traveled and is one of Michigan's real jewels. The trail quickly becomes rural after leaving Grand Rapids, and then just gets steadily better and better scenery wise (this assumes that you love Northwoods). People debate where the Northwoods begin, and you can form your own opinion on your journey north. I'd argue that Big Rapids is the line. And speaking of, don't forget to celebrate 50 miles covered there at the Sawmill, right on the trailside.

The only downside to the trail is the fact that it's paved (excepting a few miles between Howard City and Big Rapids). When walking 25+ miles a day, the surface of the trail becomes a major factor. Crushed limestone is much kinder to the pedestrian body than pavement. Pavement also encourages folks to ride their ebikes at 30mph, unfortunately, making the trail more like a road near the towns. But that drawback aside, I'll certainly be back to do this trail again.

Great Trail

October, 2023 by robertmeller1

I decided to take my road bike for a trip from Cadillac down to Big Rapids where the trail is closed for paving and back to Cadillac. I agree with Cecelia's review from Sep, 23 in that the asphalt paving is old and bumpy between Reed City and Big Rapids. Also the trail was closed between Hibma Rd south to Cleveland Rd in Tustin. The detour is gravel roads that are loose sand and very difficult to navigate with 32mm or thinner tires!

With the exception of the portion of trail north of Reed City that runs along Hwy 131 the the scenery is awesome running through rivers, hills, valleys, farms and small towns.

I am wondering if there's anyone assigned to blow the trail clean from leaves, twigs and branches? There were quite a bit of that along the way. In comparison to the Macomb/Orchard trail for example which is very well maintained all year round it seemed a bit unkempt.

Overall it is an awesome trail that I hope is better maintained than what I experienced on my recent trip and look forward to returning next year when the whole trail will be paved.

Love the WPT!

September, 2023 by cecelia.lapointe

Do you know how much I love the white pine trail? So much! Particularly, between Cadillac and Reed City. Such beautiful woods, marshes, streams, farms, wide open spaces, snakes, turtles, frogs, birds, eagles, hawks, cows, horses, pileated woodpeckers, indigo buntings, and so many other friends. I am a cyclist, runner, and hiker. I've had some of my best runs, hikes, and bike rides on this trail. Chi miigwech ~ thank you!

Also, horses are not allowed but I have seen horse poop between Tustin and LeRoy. I supposed the Amish community use the trail but they can also use the roads. I hope this gets better enforced. As the signs note along the trail equestrian, snowmobile, and motorized vehicles are prohibited. You may see a DNR vehicle from time to time.

I agree with drwelldog's review from July 2022. The WPT from Cadillac to Reed City is heaven on earth! However, from Reed City to Big Rapids it is paved but bumpy, worn, rough, and there are some potholes. I usually ride between 13-15 mph so I had to slow down to not hit bump after bump. I know a section south is being paved but looks like this section could use an update. The bushes also need to be trimmed back so you can better see through the foliage. We want the woods to be as they are but also safety is key, especially for solo riders.

Trail partially closed

September, 2023 by ses3359

This trail is closed from Howard City to Big Rapids Michigan. According to the local people it will take until November of this year to finish paving. It is a 21 mile stretch of the trail. We had to turn around.

Boardman Lake Loop Trail

Excellent local 4 mile loop

August, 2023 by michael.g.ocallaghan

I have ridden my bike on this trail multiple times at different times of the year. It’s a nice easy 4 mile loop. There’s a good pizza restaurant nearby. Nice views. It’s pleasant seeing people pushing their babies in strollers, riding bikes, and walking, and enjoying this beautiful scenery.

Pere Marquette Rail Trail

great trail.

July, 2023 by dan.allen.50552

We rode from N. Bradley to Midland and return. Lots to see. Midland did a great job being bike friendly. The 14 foot paved trail is great ( there are some cracks that could be filled). Great bathrooms well maintained.
