Planned and completed the entire trail starting from Grand Rapids Comstock Park to downtown Cadillac and back, last weekend. Was riding a gravel bike and can say that the gravel sections including the paved were so much fun to ride on. That being said, there are some deeper gravel and sand sections, mainly in the smaller cities at the crosswalks, so beware. Not bad, but you’d want to keep your eyes out for it. A fair amount of restroom stops, if you plan them. Highly recommend stopping in Rockford for a brew. Abundant campgrounds in Cadillac. Very much a friend and family group area though, so a little clustered. Stayed the second night at the Young’s Lake Campground and I could not recommend more! Very friendly owners greet you at the front and it’s not too big. It has its own little beach right in front of a lake. Some winding roads to get there, but super worth it. The stars were amazing. Great trail throughout, but when they do get to paving the entire trail, I’m sure it’d make the distance a lot easier and more accessible (although I personally liked the silence with no one else around but nature) FYI saw some Blue Racer snakes on the trail near Cadillac. Nonpoisonous, but you’ll be surprised. Recommend friendsofthewhitepinetrail.com for more details along the trail.
Started in Traverse City- larked in the Tom’s Market parking lot. Trail is super smooth and very easy- elevation changes are not that bad. Trail is marked every mile and there are some vineyard views. You will cross 5 or so roads but traffic is very light. One location along the way- resident placed water, chairs, a chalk table and a bike pumps out for a fun rest area. The end takes you into Sutton bay and we negotiated the little town and got to a great view of Sutton’s bay- I will be back!
We easily found this trail on Waterfront in downtown Frankfort, but sadly the trail was closed due to flooding. On to Sleeping Bear Dunes Heritage trail.
This trail was a pretty big letdown. There were parts that were nice, but a majority was near pretty rundown neighborhoods. The south most part of the trail, close to Lake Cadillac was pretty nice. Rather than wasting your time on this trail, park at Lake Cadillac and walk along the sidewalk, or check out the sound garden.
Rode from Reed City to Leroy. Nice trail except for the third of a mile south of Sylvan Rd. For some inexplicable reason this section is still unpaved and is loose gravel. Not only is it dangerous for road bikes the sharp stones caused my wife to get a flat tire. Tried to do a little research on why but came up empty. Would recommend walking this section for safety.
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.
..is in poor shape, loose gravel, mud, part of the trail is now a stream. Suggest you start at western trailhead then ride east while the trail is in good shape.
This trail provides a truly amazing experience. Unlike the typical rail-trail that is straight and flat, this is a purpose built trail that twists and turns, climbs and descends, all the while traversing through scenic forest, dunes and quaint towns. The southern end is not for the casual, out of shape cyclist. It has significant hills and fast descents (which I happen to love). There are some nice places to eat at towns along the way although there didn't seem to be much on the northern end. The trail is packed limestone in that section but it was firm and smooth. There are plenty of opportunities for water and restrooms along most of the route. All in all it is a trail that shouldn't be missed.
Biked the trail today from Reed City to Leroy and back.
New asphalt and smooth!!
Would be perfect...except for the half mile south of Sylvan Rd.
They did not improve that section and it is loose gravel.
If riding with road tires...it's treacherous. If it was packed in, it would be easier to ride through.
Have ridden the Northern route of the Heritage Trail to The Homestead and north. Today we parked in the tennis complex in Glen Arbor and rode to Glen Haven and the Dune Climb. The trail is paved with a 5% grade of gently rolling hills but goes up to a 12% grade at the Dune Climb(not for the faint hearted). This is a beautiful trail that completely surprised us. We did discover you have to ride the road in Glen Arbor. There are nice restrooms and places to picnic in Glen Arbor and Glen Haven. Will definitely ride this trail again.
Parked behind the Wendy’s just past fifth third ball park, rode to downtown Rockford! Gradual uphill most of the way, so it was hard on this very humid day!! Little town of Rockford is nice and lots of little shops and places to eat. The dam and the rogue river are right on the trail. We had a round trip of 17 miles, next time we will start in Rockford and go to cedar springs
Ridden many times. This is a favorite when I’m in this area.
