Little more challenging. But we’ll worth it.
Quiet and woodsy. Nice pavement. Less traveled
I've been touting this as my favorite mid-Michigan trail for a long time. Had a beautiful day riding west from Alma on a Thursday in late May. Lots of activity and friendly bikers, which was comforting during this quarantine. Trail surface was smooth and seemed to survive the winter well.
Biked from Greenville to Alma one way. It was a nice and rather scenic ride, taking only about four hours (averaged 10.5 mph). The trail was in great shape, and there were hardly any bumps or holes. I would gladly do this trail again in the future!
I almost didn't want to ride this trail since that one guy was so extremely upset in his review (eye roll emoji). At the time I didn't realize his review was from 2014, I think the trail has been updated since then.
We rode on 5/16/20. Started in Kentwood and ended Southeast of Middleville (about 36 miles roundtrip)
The trail signs were pretty good, a few spots took a glance at the trail link map but it was easy to follow. It was pretty solid pavement/sidewalk all the way past Caledonia. Good scenery and overall a good ride.
The trail turns to gravel, grass and we had some wet spots for about a half mile or so from 100th St SE to Stimson Rd. After that you ride down the dirt road until you reach Crane Rd where the trail picks back up. From there we continued through middleville and the trail was pleasant as far as we headed in that direction.
This trail was pretty awesome and I really enjoyed it. A few spots to ride off trail but for the most part the pavement was great. Not sure how the trail is towards Hastings but I plan to check it out sometime.
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.
Rode this today 5/3/20. The path itself is nice and wide but the gravel makes for a very bumpy ride. The scenery was pleasant but the best part of the trail was the two miles of pavement in Belding. If you’re trying to do a long ride find a different trail.
The new improved trail is a hidden gem. I run often from Foreman north. It has a slight incline which is great for doing negative splits when I run an out and back
I love this trail! Def recommend. Has some hills, good scenery and easy access.
If paved with asphalt, this would be a great, scenic trail. Unfortunately there is a crushed asphalt, gravel surface not suitable for road bikes, recumbents or anything without fat tires.
Road bike (15mph) from Jackson Landing to Stanton. Trail in good condition with some cracks at regular intervals. Leaves covering some of those cracks made it interesting at times. Peaceful setting.
I biked the entirety of the improved portion of this trail yesterday 10/9/19.
I started in Ovid, where there was parking by the trail but no public restrooms and headed west. As anticipated, the trail was improved and very nice until Smith Road just west of Owasso (about 7.5 miles). Past Smith Road, the trail was overgrown with grass 2-3 ft tall and trees growing across--impassable without a machete. I turned around there and rode all the way through Saranac, where the trail ended at mile marker 133. Past there, the trail had original railroad ballast with large stones, not passable even with a mountain bike. I then turned back and returned to my car in Ovid. The most beautiful part of the trail was West of Pewamo, as it was along the Grand River valley. East of Pewamo to Owasso, it is primarily farm land sheltered by a line of trees in most places. There is parking and restrooms along the trail in St. Johns, Fowler, Pewamo, Muir, Ionia and Saranac. The trail was beautifully, newly paved asphalt within all of the towns, and hard-packed crushed limestone in between. It was perfect for a cyclocross bike or mountain bike and most likely entirely passable with a road bike (some rare soft spots in the crushed stone could be difficult). I will definitely ride this again. 51.5 miles of improved trail total, for a round tip distance of 103 miles.
