We did about 20 miles and it was very nice some parts have heavy traffic but most is separate and nice. Would do it again for sure!
We like to trail ride at a leisurely pace, targeting 20-30 miles. We have previously ridden From Comstock Park to Sand Lake, and found the trail enjoyable and well maintained.
This trip we started in Big Rapids, parking on the south end of the Big Rapids Riverwalk trail. This trail follows and crosses Muskegon River and connect in 3 places to the White Pines trail.
The ride north was nice following the river part of the way. The grade to the north is predominately up. Between a wind from the north and the grade, north was a bit of a work out, but the return trip saw our average speed double.
Would recommend riding south to north on this section if you are planning a round trip.
The new southern extension has made this into one of my favorite trails. The paved surface is near perfect and it is lightly traveled, in contrast to the White Pine Trail which runs parallel to the east. You can now ride from downtown Muskegon all the way to Hart on paved trails off the roadways. This portion is remote and very quiet with only a few houses in the distance.
The northern extension (White Lake Pathway) into Whitehall and the southern extension into North Muskegon are very scenic, curvy and shady. This is a family friendly trail crossing only 3 busy roads. During the summer in the afternoons and evenings the "Shivering Timbers" roller coaster at Michigan's Adventure comes within a few yards of the trail and provides a welcome distraction for kids on the otherwise long boring straight stretch. Early and late in the day even this central portion of the trail is somewhat shaded.
The down side of the remoteness of this trail is the total lack of signage, mile markers, access to water, or toilets. The very bicycle friendly First Evangelical Lutheran Church or the fast food place south of it are the last potential pit stops on the south end. The White Lake Public Library is a perfect pit stop on the White Lake Pathway northern extension but easy to miss in the woods--there is a short paved spur going off near the 2 boardwalk sections.
Trail is currently flooded in several areas. Can navigate through town but definitely not as pretty.
This was my first ride of the season and very enjoyable. Passed over a small stream and the stream meandered along the trail for a short section. Also traveled past wooded areas with shade and past a few small business. There is a small section that travels on the road for about 1.5 miles but I have heard they will be adding a paved section which will go into clare past the depot. Bathrooms present there .
The trail is a bit bumpy and wet at places but the rural ride is peaceful and the farm scenery is enjoyable. Lots of rabbits and chipmunks.
The trail is easy to access and has plenty of restrooms and places to get water and food. However it is very rough at the Alma end for at least the first 10 miles. Lots of root bumps, so much so that we got off the trail after only 10 miles and took the roads back. We had planned a much longer ride but it just wasn't any fun.
I rode this trail on a Saturday morning in June 2019.
This is possibly the prettiest rail trail ride in Michigan. I started from the Montague trail head and road to Hart and back, passing through several small and friendly communities along the way. The trail is in fantastic shape. It wanders through miles of scenic views, fruit orchards and asparagus fields. There are picnic tables or benches just about every mile. A really pleasant experience.
Hart is a bit higher in elevation so if you plan to do the entire distance there-n-back, I suggest starting in Montague.
We live a block off Kent Trails and reading the reviews here can be confusing...The trail begins off Butterworth Rd in Grand Rapids near John Ball Zoo. The other end of the trail is on 84th Street in Byron Center, MI.
To get from one end ot the other you have to leave the trail for city streets for a few block with limited signage to connect the two paved path sections.
The path is paved the entire portion and in good shape. There are a few busy steets to be crossed so need caution if biking with children or inattentive adults. Great trail if you are patient with the lack of signage.
Path is well cared for and marked. We found it difficult to find a parking spot to start the trail in Grand Haven. Parked in the church parking lot at the corner of Sheldon and Robbins.
We rode from Greenville to Sidney in early fall, 2018. We were planning to go to Stanton that day but it was rainy and cold so cut it short. It's a nice/easy ride, for the part we did. We're planning on doing it again in the spring and going much further.
Rode this trail this past weekend. Loved it (even though it was only 45 degrees). We started at Tower park and rode all the way to Baldwin Lake. Then rode back and stopped into town for lunch (our normal routine for weekend rides). I enjoyed it mostly because of the variety. You start off in the park, wooded area, very nice boardwalks over marshes, then through more woods. (We did take a wrong turn shortly after we got out of the park, but luckily I noticed it right away because I had my Traillink map downloaded and GPS going.) After a couple miles, we ended up on a double wide sidewalk through town. The seams in the sidewalk were a little annoying but it's all part of the adventure. This takes you through town and into the awesome tunnel under M-57. (I love tunnels). At this point, Meijer is on your right but if you keep following the trail you end up in on open rolling field area that heads down to Baldwin Lake. Of course, in November it was too cold to enjoy the lake but that would be a nice break in the middle of summer. The trail in whole was enjoyable and we will be back again.
