Kensington Metropark Trail

Kensington 9.2

November, 2018 by michellerobins32

Awesome trail

Fred Meijer Heartland Trail

Only complete part of it so far

November, 2018 by rachellynn

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.

Fred Meijer Flat River Trail

A little bit of everything

November, 2018 by rachellynn

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.

Marquette Multi-Use Path

Beautiful !! Love this Place!!

October, 2018 by bkn94

Start Down in Harvey on the Iron Ore Heritage Trail and ride to Marquette. The trail merges with the Multi Use Path in Marquette. Ride up to Presque Isle Park. The trail hugs the shore line of Lake Superior all the way. Its a beautiful ride! Check out the shore line on the north side of Presque Isle Park. The Black Rocks, volcanic?, are very cool indeed. Love this place!

Fred Meijer Kenowa Trail

Not all trail and no parking at the trailhead

October, 2018 by rachellynn

We're from the Grand Rapids area and decided to try this trail this past weekend. Like most trails, signage is non-existent. I download all maps and keep these within sight on my bike. This is crucial for this trail especially. At one point, Greenly and 24th street, there is actually a trail that goes north, but the Kenowa trail goes south on 24th street. It would be very confusing if you didn't have a map and gps. There are a couple spots that you have to ride on the road. We have lights on our bikes for safety but I would much rather ride on a trail than the road. Because we are from the GR area, we wanted to start at the trailhead in Jamestown. Unfortunately there is NO public parking nearby. It's the in the middle of a very rural area so we ended up parking down the road at a church. Two or three parking spots at the trailhead (both ends) would be nice. In whole, the trail itself is ok. It's a little hilly, so a great workout but not for kids or families. Also, we like to break up the ride with a small lunch before we turn around and return back. We decided to head into Zeeland to do lunch but I wouldn't suggest it. There was no good way to get under 131 and into town. We road on the side of the road, mostly in the soft dirt due to the construction. We probably won't do this trail again, mainly because of this. It was really too busy for bikes, especially during the construction, but I think even after, I wouldn't suggest it.

Fred Meijer Clinton-Ionia-Shiawassee Trail

Self Proclaimed Property Enforcer

October, 2018 by drakerj

I’ve walked, ran and rode this trail since mid nineties, and before it was widened, grated and crushed limestone base added. Never had a problem with adjacent property owners until recently. There’s a “home caretaker “ about a quarter mile east of Lowell road, south side (pond berm butts up against rail trail, windmill clearly visible) that likes to stand out there at his “post” and ensure neither you nor your dogs land a foot off the limestone and onto “his land”. I’m aware that this same kid has had run-ins with DNR and deer hunters exercising their right to hunt on buffers. Other than that, I’ve had no problems, and enjoy my time out there.

Fred Meijer Berry Junction Trail

Trail is 10 miles in length

October, 2018 by vicki1960

With the new section added, Summer 2018, this trail is 10 miles in length. At the North end, the trail begins where the White Lake Pathway ends as a seamless connection. Though no signage there. Along the trail there are no mile markers either. A few miles into the trail, there is one sign marker. North end of the trail starts at White Lake Drive in Whitehall and ends on Whitehall Road in Muskegon near First Evangelical Lutheran Church. There is parking along the trail at McMillan Road.
New section of the trail winds through a wooded area and has some grade to it.
A nice ride if you park in Whitehall and take the White River Pathway to Fred Meijer Berry Junction. These two trails are a total of 13 miles. White Lake Pathway is 3, Fred Meijer Berry Junction is 10.

Pere Marquette Rail-Trail

Good trail for casual riders

October, 2018 by skblose

Had a lovely overnight trip on this trail-something we had wanted to do since getting new bikes. Started at Midland trailhead-parked the car behind the courthouse. Pleasant ride to Clare-lots of side attractions to explore, several small towns to grab a bite to eat and no lack of bathroom facilities ! Rode to Clare to spend the night . Main Street is only one block from trail’s end. Doherty Hotel has a special hike/bike package that offered free breakfast, munchies/drinks for the trail and dining credits.I did not want to leave my bike outside and management was kind to lock it in storage area in hotel. Lots of cute shops, bars to explore as well as the famous “ Cops and Doughnuts “ bakery!
The 60 mile round trip was just the right length for a first time weekend trip. Trail was flat, well maintained . We loved it!

White Lake Pathway

Great pathway through Whitehall MI

October, 2018 by vicki1960

Pathway trail is located in an through Whitehall MI. On the North end, the trail connects to the Hart-Montague trail at the White Lake Chamber of Commerce and on the South end it connects with the Fred Meijer Berry Junction trail. The connections are seamless.
This pathway trail is approx 3 miles in length and travels through residential areas, business areas and a wooded forest. There is also a lovely flower garden along the trail. The trail is well marked with map signs along the route.
The wooded area of the trail is through the Alcoa Howmet Woodland Gardens.
Parking is available at the Hart Montague end of the trail and at the Whitehall public library.
Be sure to stop and see the World's Largest Weathervane on the North end of the trail in Montague, located 1/2 mile from the trail. There are places to eat and shop along the trail in Whitehall.
If you have time, drive out to the White River Historic Light Station.

William Field Memorial Hart-Montague Trail State Park

Wow....One of Michigan's Best!

October, 2018 by vicki1960

If you are looking for a good long ride, on a great trail, this is one of the absolute best! Over 22 miles in length, out and back makes for a great ride. As a bonus, you can connect seamlessly to the White Lake Trail which also has a seamless connection to the Fred Meijer Berry Junction Trail. You can literally bike from Hart to North Muskegon MI and never leave the trail (s).
The William Field Memorial Hart-Montague Trail is virtually flat, widened in 2015, and asphalt paved in very good condition. Several trail towns along the route are welcoming and accommodating. Each trailhead offers their town visitor information. You can eat in the towns which you will pass through. There are signs noting the mileage from town to town along the trail.
Started in the middle in New Era and headed North to Hart. You will go through Shelby, which offers places to eat and a Dollar Store directly on the trail. Farmlands of fields and livestock and wooded areas. Services are also available in Hart.
Biking South from New Era, to Montague it's more of the same, farms and woods. On the Southern end, is Montague-Whitehall which is home of the World's Largest Weathervane located just off the trail. There are shops and places to eat in Montague-Whitehall as well, including an old fashioned car drive-up hop service. Car or bike for that matter!
Trail ends at the White Lake Chamber of Commerce. When open, they offer local information and clean rest rooms.
At the Chamber you can access the White Lake pathway.
Plenty of parking in Montague on the South end of the trail, and in Hart at the North end of the trail. Smaller lots along the trail route.
Mile 0 begins in Hart and Mile 22 is in Montague.
An all around great trail to spend the day on.

Grand Haven Waterfront Trail

Renovated Grand Haven Pier

October, 2018 by vicki1960

Recently re-opened in August, 2018 after 2 years of renovations on Grand Havens South Pier Catwalk.
Along the pier you can bike or walk.
The trail runs from Grand Haven State Park, the Lighthouse Pier and into and past Downtown Grand Haven.
Many shops and places to eat along the trail. Some on-road sections but there is a large berm to accommodate cyclists.
Be sure to take in a sunset from the Lighthouse pier over Lake Michigan.
There are two Lighthouses along this pier.

Muskegon Lakeshore Trail

Trail is 6 miles of path around Muskegon Lake, plus road sections

October, 2018 by vicki1960

Can't figure how this one would be 14 miles, but here goes.

Parked at mile 3, near Lake Express car ferry. At mile 2, there is a very large parking lot. The first mile must be on the streets and goes to Pere Marquette Park. Lakeside trail seemed to end just after mile 7 at Muskegon Lake Nature Preserve in North Muskegon.

The trail did follow along Lake Muskegon. It passed Heritage Landing, the city of Muskegon, some industrial sites, and Hartshorn Marina. Did see the on-street connection to the Musketawa Trail. Did not see any sand dunes, they must be near the beginning near Pere Marquette Park.

Once in North Muskegon, you can take road to pick up the Fred Meijer Berry Junction Trail.

Downtown Muskegon is very biker friendly with numerous bike racks, shops and places to eat.

Parking is at mile 0, mile 2 Hartshorn Marina and there may be some other places along the trail.

Very flat asphalt paved with numerous numbered wooded boardwalks. A nice trail to get around Muskegon on. Trail follows Lakeshore Drive and Shoreline drive.
