Fred Meijer Heartland Trail

Very Nice

November, 2021 by sarahibrandl

November 2021 rode from Alma out 15 miles and back. Parked in city parking at very start of trail. Parking there a short ride on trail crossing a few easy to cross streets till reaching College area where the main trail opens up. We saw parking in College is where most parked. Heavy leaf cover this time of year, so could not see trail most of time, trail had a few areas of bumps. Over all the ride was smooth. Will ride rest soon.

Fred Meijer CIS Rail Trail

October, 2021 by laculver7

From Owosso to Ionia it’s a great riding trail. Love the mix of shade, sun, wild life. The small towns along the way offer pit stops (Trail heads) for food, water and restrooms. Very surprised it’s not busier, also kinda glad! More connections to come to other trails will be added bonus.

Harger Line Rail-Trail

The Best Rollerskating Path

September, 2021 by nikianarchy

The smoothest, cleanest pathway for skating with minimal traffic crossings. Plus all the people here are the kindest and we have the best dogs of any path. Beautiful abundant nature.

beautiful day and great trail from North Bradley to Claire

Fred Meijer Flat River Trail

Short but surprising

September, 2021 by joe maitner

Biked the Flat River Trail on a Sunday afternoon in August. We found the Tower Park parking lot easily and with a little search the trailhead across from the parking lot. In short order we were biking along the Flat River and had to watch carefully for the Trail markers. The newly paved sections and the cut off to another trail was a bit confusing but with a brief backtrack we continued on the trail. About two thirds of the way we were a bit confused again as we approached some busy roads just passed the high school. We guessed right and found the tunnel under the busy road and continued on...this led to the surprising portion of the trail....a few hills leading to the trail around Baldwin and Manoka lakes (both very small)....and with a bit of coaching from other bikers we were able to stay with the trail and find the parking lot. It was a short trail but very worthwhile. Beautiful scenery, curves, a few doable hills and a few surprises. Loved itl

Avoidable Accident

September, 2021 by janehdegroot

The ride from Comstock Park to Rockford and back again last Thursday was positively delightful, including an outstanding lunch, until about the final 500 yards when one of our six-person party collided with a green cement post meant to keep the automated vehicles off the bike path. The post won. Short of publicizing her gruesome photo a day after the accident, the facts are that she suffered a gouge in her forehead (yes, she was wearing a helmet!), two black eyes, scraped upper lip, a torn fingernail and a wrenched knee. After spending a couple of hours waiting in urgent care, she was told she needed to go to the actual ER in order to have x-rays on her head, as is protocol for those with potential concussions on patients over 65. About eight hours later she finally came home.

This all might have been avoided had the posts been painted the usual vibrant yellow or orange color as the green blended into the background of the landscape.

Our group plans to use that same bike path again, but will caution people as we navigate through those posts. Pay attention to the ride and not to the scenery!

Pere Marquette Rail-Trail

Fast and Smooth Ride

September, 2021 by aspergers

I rode the 30 miles from Clare to Midland and I was impressed by the condition of the trail. Sections are even sealed blacktop. All the cracks had filler and the vegetation was mowed at least 3 feet off the trail. I left the trail around Sanford as the trail is closed due to flood damage resulting from two private dams which failed, sending millions on gallons of water through the area. It was easy enough to ride on the shoulder of Saginaw Rd for a bit until the trail opened back up. I enjoyed this ride.

Harger Line Rail-Trail

great track, nice views

September, 2021 by kdlim5

If you like long straight tracks, then you will enjoy this one. It seems like it might be boring but it is quite scenic and quiet.

Geese...

August, 2021 by gzymmb1

I ride this trail from the ball park to Sand Lake frequently, but no more. When passing thru Rockford, the geese poo makes this beautiful trail unpleasant to ride. And it's not just a little amount. It gets all over your bike and all over you. I'll switch to another trail even if I have to travel to get to it.

Husband and I wanted a 4 mile walk. Miles were not accurate. Started at the park on Front St and when we got to Venoy we still had 2.57 to go. Enjoyed the scenery ¿
