Black Creek Nature Trail

Nice trail

October, 2019 by DeboraRae

This is a very pretty trail. A short, paved trail that follows the creek. Many benches along the way and there are restrooms at the dog park.

Stony Creek Metropark Trail

Beautiful year-round

October, 2019 by rossflynn

My wife and I have walked & biked this trail hundreds of times over the past 25 years. The asphalt trail is 6.2 miles around Stony Creek Lake and includes breathtaking views of the lake and nature. If you prefer to get off the asphalt, the trail connects to dozens of beautiful dirt trails through the woods, especially on the west side (“West Branch”). The best time to come is when it’s quiet & peaceful, ie, not on a major holiday.

Pere Marquette Rail-Trail

awesome trail!!!

October, 2019 by troy.d.young

Oakwoods Metropark to Flat Rock Trail

Convenient Connection to the Metro Park Trails

October, 2019 by chaspenny

My wife and I live in Flat Rock and ride this trail often. It is well maintained blacktop and a pleasant ride.

Fred Meijer Heartland Trail

October 19

October, 2019 by andrew.driska

Road bike (15mph) from Jackson Landing to Stanton. Trail in good condition with some cracks at regular intervals. Leaves covering some of those cracks made it interesting at times. Peaceful setting.

Flat Rock Pathway

Nice trail but needs work

October, 2019 by chaspenny

I have ridden this trail a couple of times a year for the past several years. It was a really good smooth trail but has received very little maintenance. The asphalt is becoming very rough because of tree roots and general wear. I ride a hybrid bike and it is getting to the condition that I will find other trails to ride until this is repaired. I am 70 years old and love biking but my body lets me know quickly when the path is bad.

Fred Meijer Clinton-Ionia-Shiawassee Trail

103 Mile cyclocross.

October, 2019 by mvanvleck

I biked the entirety of the improved portion of this trail yesterday 10/9/19.
I started in Ovid, where there was parking by the trail but no public restrooms and headed west. As anticipated, the trail was improved and very nice until Smith Road just west of Owasso (about 7.5 miles). Past Smith Road, the trail was overgrown with grass 2-3 ft tall and trees growing across--impassable without a machete. I turned around there and rode all the way through Saranac, where the trail ended at mile marker 133. Past there, the trail had original railroad ballast with large stones, not passable even with a mountain bike. I then turned back and returned to my car in Ovid. The most beautiful part of the trail was West of Pewamo, as it was along the Grand River valley. East of Pewamo to Owasso, it is primarily farm land sheltered by a line of trees in most places. There is parking and restrooms along the trail in St. Johns, Fowler, Pewamo, Muir, Ionia and Saranac. The trail was beautifully, newly paved asphalt within all of the towns, and hard-packed crushed limestone in between. It was perfect for a cyclocross bike or mountain bike and most likely entirely passable with a road bike (some rare soft spots in the crushed stone could be difficult). I will definitely ride this again. 51.5 miles of improved trail total, for a round tip distance of 103 miles.

Mike Levine Lakelands Trail State Park

Fantastic trail

October, 2019 by wdkeller

One my favorite trails. Smooth limestone surface west of Pinckney. Pavement east of Pinckney to Hamburg. Information for this trail on this site is outdated. The trail continues south of Munith, and is in great condition.

Fred Meijer White Pine Trail State Park

Great Trail-September 2019 Ride

October, 2019 by vicki1960

We parked at the Trailhead just South of Cadillac. Biked 2 miles into the city of Cadillac for lunch. There's also some great little shops in Cadillac.
Biked from Cadillac to LeRoy and back, approx 35 miles round trip.
Trail is very nicely paved asphalt through open areas and wooded areas.
Great ride on the Northern section of the trail.
Between Cadillac and LeRoy you will pass through Tustin which has a few small stores if you need anything.
Along the trail there are wooded sections of huge white pine trees.

Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail

Hills and Turns

October, 2019 by vicki1960

September, 2019 ride. We ventured out close to sunset. Accessed the trail out of Empire. Parking and restroom at the Empire Trail head, the beginning of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. We headed North.
Trail is asphalt paved in good condition and goes through a wooded area. Has many turns and not just grades, but actual hills. There are signs. These hills provides a great workout! If you just want to roll along, you're going to have to work at it.
We saw turkey and deer just before sunset.

Fred Meijer Heartland Trail

September 2019 Ride

October, 2019 by vicki1960

We parked at the Jackson's Landing Trailhead in Greenville. Biked a few miles North on the Heartland Trail. This was after we biked on the Flat River Trail.
The Heartland Trail is newly paved and in very good condtion.
In Greenville there are places to eat and other services.
Hope to do more of this trail in the future.

Fred Meijer Flat River Trail

September 2019 Ride

October, 2019 by vicki1960

We parked at Jackson's Landing trailhead. Large paved lot and portable restroom.
Trail is asphalt paved and plastic decking. The plastic decking sections are extensive and very rough and bouncy if traveling at a decent speed.
The trail goes along the Flat River. Coming out of Greenville the trail is more of a paved sidewalk, up near the High School.
Trail services include eateries nearby since most of this trail is within the city limits.
You can also access the Heartland Trail from Jackson's Landing trailhead.
