Fred Meijer Flat River Valley Rail Trail

Flat River Gem

December, 2020 by trimike06

This trail is incredibly well maintained and could be ridden with a road bike however gravel tires are best.

Only one busy intersection at Lincoln Lake Road, most others are gravel roads with good sight lines making it safe to see approaching car traffic.

I sincerely hope this doesn't get paved as the gravel experience is unlike cement or asphalt AND it moves moisture away nicely...

Recently (late November 2020) the trail was swept and loose spots at several intersections were addressed making it literally the best gravel trail I've ridden yet..

Van Buren Trail State Park

New Trailhead and Paved Trail

November, 2020 by lbpiers

There is now trailhead parking at the South Haven end of the trail. There is a parking lot on Aylworth Ave. between Kalamazoo St. and Monroe Blvd. The trail is also paved between that trailhead parking and Van Buren State Park.

This is a great trail for inline rollerblading! The asphalt is smooth and even. There are not a lot of hills. The trail going beside the water is such an enchanting experience. There are many path directions you can chose from. I had so much fun bumping my jams and skating like there is no tomorrow. It’s a wonderful trail!

Portage Creek Bicentennial Trail

aging trail but very serviceable

November, 2020 by joe maitner

Drove down from Grand Rapids, Mi to experience the Bicentennial Trail. The trail is short ( 3.6) but a comfortable 8 miles (we added a half mile by going beyond the park on paved side walk at south end) by going out and back. Trail was older but black top surface was very usable and kept in repair. For a short trail it had lots of nice surprises in twist, turns, slight hills and surrounded by nature in the middle of a city environment. Parking was plentiful with several trail lots at both ends and in the middle. It was a 77 degree, sunny November 6th which added to the enjoyment. Trail was quite busy but everyone knew and followed trail etiquette. Highly recommend this trail.

Byron Ctr Segment Best for Us

October, 2020 by bwh72jem

BC trail north toward GR was good for us. Douglas Walker segment had nice rolling hills, but they were too much for my joints (RA)

Fred Meijer Flat River Valley Rail Trail

Great Gravel Trail

October, 2020 by djirwin77

I ride my bike from Lowell to Greenville - this is one of the nicest trails in MI! The gravel is a special composite for biking and walking. It is well maintained and scenic with mostly flat rides through forest and farmlands.

Wonderful Fall ride

October, 2020 by jbatalis

Loved our ride. Very nice well kept trail. Began at 10th st trail head with the red caboose. have to say was a very pleasant Sunday morning ride, even as busy as it was. Between the Kalamazoo River Trail ride on Saturday and this one, well worth traveling from IN for

Pumpkinvine Nature Trail

Pumpkin Vine Trail - wonderful

October, 2020 by karen.surdenik

Rode this from Goshen to Shipshewana and it was wonderful. Favorite part for me was between Middlebury and Goshen actually closer to Goshen probably because it was early October and the fields were beautiful and the many tunnel of trees were so colorful. Wonderful trail, very well kept, safe, almost flat and exceptional scenery. Never tired of the scenery.

Grand River Edges Trail

Lots of places to stop and sit, fish, picnic. Short for an adult bike ride but good for a run. Flat and family friendly. Fold and kayaking.
