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.
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.
Nice and well kept trail.
Started walking this trail about 2 months ago. It is smooth and flat, with a quiet country feel. Reaches about 1.8 miles one way so exploring a few more off trail sites, we get our 4 mile walk in.
Looking forward to it connecting to another trail.
Not bad for a quick 4 mile run close to home
Runs past Goshen Brewing at the north end. Winds south to the dam, a nice stretch that makes a great ride or walk.
Please be advised that motor vehicles included snowmobiles are NOT allowed on the paved section of the trail which begins just north of where the unpaved section runs underneath I-196 expressway. South of the expressway the trail is unimproved and snowmobiling is allowed to the Hartford, MI trailhead.
Well maintained asphalt paved trail in very good condition provides for a fast and flat ride.
Parked at the Weatherwax Road Trailhead in Jackson and biked to Concord and back. Concord is just over 10 miles away.
Trail goes through wooded areas and open areas of farm fields. You will also pass by Lime Lake.
Mid point there is another trailhead and parking. The trail passes accross several back side roads, some of which are dirt.
People along the trail were friendly.
At the Jackson end of the trail, Falling Waters connects with Martin Luther King Equality Trail for an additional 4 miles of trail.
Services in Jackson include many places to eat a few miles off the trail.
Biked the trail from Middleville south on a cool clear weekday in late September. Trail was not crowded but a bit bumpy in a few spots. We also biked the new portion a mile long and it was beautiful. Nice restaurants in town near the trai.
This is a very beautiful trail. Lots of shade and nature. We liked the crushed stone. It was less bumpy than some of the paved trails. We did 30 miles from Grand Junction to just past Kendall and back today. Bloomingdale has a nice little depot museum to stop and look through. Lots of history there. And Gobles has a some good food options. Really enjoyed it.
We rode out 16 miles from South Haven at the beginning of the trail head. Although the trail was pretty, it was very monotonous. The total trip was 33 miles (we did not go all the way to Kalamazoo). I thought there would be towns that we could get off at and explore a bit, or grab a bite to eat or have coffee...but there was nothing. We should of investigated the trail further before beginning.
Not bad for an urban trail. Many street crossings and some travel in a residential area. The map was useful because the trail in those areas is not marked in any way. The crossings are well marked and there is a traffic light where the trail crosses Hwy 127 specifically for the trail. So kudos to the developers there. The trail has been extended so now it goes to and into Pokagon State Park. At least doubling the trail length. As an earlier reviewer stated there are some nice hills.
