Beautiful September afternoon to ride this trail. Gets lots of use but people nice. Can enjoy Salamon Farm and the sunflower fields in September.
I started in Jonesville. The trail was littered with trash, including car parts from the significant 4 lane road next to the trail. It was overgrown in parts and simply was in terrible shape. I got a flat at about mile out and walked back. I was confident that if I changed the tube that there was enough litter on the trail that riding would soon result in another flat.
This is an excellent trail that is very well travelled by bikers, walkers, runners and skaters. The majority is tree covered and very comfortable. The trail is well maintained and has plenty of directional and safety signage. Ample parking at each end. A favorite ride in the city!
Park at the Black Swamp Preserve just a bit south of the north terminus.
The trail is nice and well maintained. For variety on the return north from North Baltimore, we road some of the parallel county roads. They're smooth and with virtually no vehicle traffic on a Tuesday morning.
Parked at Oak Openings on SR64. Rode East about 9.5 miles on North Fork. Took the connector trail to the Fallen Timbers Monument. Should have followed the sign that said “To Battlefield”. Missed it and had to turn left at mall entrance. Rode across SR24 bridge to the monument, then down a short paved hill trail and over to the Side Cut Metropark. Turned around and rode through the mall parking lot to a Subway in the back by the movie theaters. Found the unofficial shortcut just to the right of the theatres. Saved about a mile of riding back to the Connector Trail. Rode about 10 miles on the South Fork to Fulton-Lucas Rd. Rode about 5.5 miles North on the road. Very little traffic. A Friday night about 7PM and not a single car passed us. A right turn on the North Fork and about a mile back to the truck.
Now I know how the Cannonball got it’s name. Both trails were straight as an arrow. Nicely paved the whole way. Glad we rode it clockwise. South trail seemed to have more trees on the North side, so heading West at 7PM we had some nice shade.
I prefer a trail with some turns, but this was nice to do 32 miles with no backtracking. Thx for the nice trails.....Bikin-Mike - Aug 2020
Once you get to know the trail, it’s great. There are a lot of points around downtown that I had to have my phone out to navigate. We rode the trail a few times over the weekend and by the second try at it, we were good.
This trail is great for road cycling. It is clean and not congested. It is an easy ride with nice coverage, so the sun doesn't beat down on you for the entire ride. Nice when you just want to get up and get a solid ride in.
Great trail to hike!
Rode this on a beautiful Sunday. Awesome trail if you’re looking for a leisurely ride. On a hot day this is a perfect trail -the tree canopy keeps the sun at bay. The trail is well maintained-bumps are not an issue. I would suggest parking in Adrian instead of Tecumseh. The parking area in Adrian has a covered pavilion, drinking fountain and ample parking.
It is really nice Trail next to the river with some attractions at the ends of the Trail (now closed probably due to COVID-19). Path clean and comfortable to run or ride a bike. A lot of restrooms, benches, Swings on the Trails and both ends of the Path. Most Trail cover with the shade, because of the trees and whole time We can enjoy river following the Path.
Rode from the Jerry Russel Trail through the Hill-Jo Trail to the end of the Baw Beese. The Jerry Russell Trail is in Jonesville and features cute bird houses. The Hill-Jo trail runs along M99 and is junk! We ended up riding on the road next to the trail because it’s so poorly paved. The Baw Beese Trail is by far the nicest of this regional trai@z I suggest parking south at the park and riding north.
Crushed gravel with plenty of parking and bathrooms at each end of the trail. Certainly one of the best trails I’ve ever been on in the little town of Grand Rapids across the river is great to stop at to get something to eat.
