Fred Meijer Flat River Trail

Short but surprising

September, 2021 by joe maitner

Biked the Flat River Trail on a Sunday afternoon in August. We found the Tower Park parking lot easily and with a little search the trailhead across from the parking lot. In short order we were biking along the Flat River and had to watch carefully for the Trail markers. The newly paved sections and the cut off to another trail was a bit confusing but with a brief backtrack we continued on the trail. About two thirds of the way we were a bit confused again as we approached some busy roads just passed the high school. We guessed right and found the tunnel under the busy road and continued on...this led to the surprising portion of the trail....a few hills leading to the trail around Baldwin and Manoka lakes (both very small)....and with a bit of coaching from other bikers we were able to stay with the trail and find the parking lot. It was a short trail but very worthwhile. Beautiful scenery, curves, a few doable hills and a few surprises. Loved itl

Fred Meijer White Pine Trail State Park

Avoidable Accident

September, 2021 by janehdegroot

The ride from Comstock Park to Rockford and back again last Thursday was positively delightful, including an outstanding lunch, until about the final 500 yards when one of our six-person party collided with a green cement post meant to keep the automated vehicles off the bike path. The post won. Short of publicizing her gruesome photo a day after the accident, the facts are that she suffered a gouge in her forehead (yes, she was wearing a helmet!), two black eyes, scraped upper lip, a torn fingernail and a wrenched knee. After spending a couple of hours waiting in urgent care, she was told she needed to go to the actual ER in order to have x-rays on her head, as is protocol for those with potential concussions on patients over 65. About eight hours later she finally came home.

This all might have been avoided had the posts been painted the usual vibrant yellow or orange color as the green blended into the background of the landscape.

Our group plans to use that same bike path again, but will caution people as we navigate through those posts. Pay attention to the ride and not to the scenery!

Leelanau Trail

great trail

September, 2021 by snakeskinstraps

We parked at Cherry Bend Rd and rode to Sutton’s Bay -about 14 miles. Trail is very smooth and there are beautiful views of apple and cherry orchards, sunflower fields, lakes and more. Enjoyed it very much.

Pere Marquette Rail-Trail

Fast and Smooth Ride

September, 2021 by aspergers

I rode the 30 miles from Clare to Midland and I was impressed by the condition of the trail. Sections are even sealed blacktop. All the cracks had filler and the vegetation was mowed at least 3 feet off the trail. I left the trail around Sanford as the trail is closed due to flood damage resulting from two private dams which failed, sending millions on gallons of water through the area. It was easy enough to ride on the shoulder of Saginaw Rd for a bit until the trail opened back up. I enjoyed this ride.

Leelanau Trail

Awesome trail

September, 2021 by rsiemeck_tl

Flat, fast , smooth and well maintained! Find the southern end of trail on M22 next to Holiday gas station. Ride north 17 miles to Sutton’s Bay. Some road crossings to be careful of, but otherwise great !

Traverse Area Recreation and Transportation Trail (TART)

TART is a great connector trail

September, 2021 by rsiemeck_tl

Asphalt trail that is very flat and connects to Leelanau trail. It runs right behind the Traverse City state park (Campground) and has good signage. Follow arrows on ground and signs. From campground you can go east 2.7 miles to Acme or west 6 miles to Leelanau trail.

Baw Beese Trail

Short ride

September, 2021 by bh4ng5pvc9

Only ride thru the park/lake area. If you leave the park it’s all sidewalks and main streets. The lake is beautiful to look at but that’s about it!!

Michigan Air Line Trail

Smooth and scenic

September, 2021 by cvharkey_tl

At the east end this trail starts near On The Dunes bar and sports venue. Lots of room for parking. The trail ends in Wixom, with several good options for snacks or a beverage. Our choice was the Drafting Table Brewery. Lots of other cyclers were headed further west for more drinking in South Lyon. Had a bite at On The Dunes when we got back to our car. As others have said, those with kids or serious riders may want to avoid due to the many roads that are crossed.

Polly Ann Trail

Well Kept Trail with Multiple Personalities

September, 2021 by mtraver

As of September 2021 the trail is a mix of asphalt and crushed limestone that works its way through suburban lots, farm fields and local towns. The full trail is knit together with bits and pieces of trails in various stages of maturity. We parked at the Indianwood Rd Trailhead and rode around 3 miles south and 7 miles north. Here's what we found:

- Clarkston Rd to Joslyn Rd - a straight run along the old rail line with a crushed limestone surface
- Old Rail Bed to Joslyn/Heights intersection - this section is an old concrete pad sidewalk.
- Heights Rd to Joslyn Rd - a well kept asphalt path separate from the street that runs along the east side of Joslyn Road.
- Joslyn Rd to Indianwood Trailhead: a narrow paved track that runs through the woods along Indianwood Rd for about a quarter mile.
- Indianwood Rd to Drahner Rd - a level, peaceful run through the country on crushed limestone.
- Drahner Rd to Louck Street (in Oxford) - a long stretch of paved asphalt path that includes a dedicated bridge over Washington Street.
- Louck Street and beyond - crushed limestone and dirt track that runs through woods and lakeland. The path in this area occasionally suffers from wash-outs, so keep an eye out for loose gravel and sand.

Overall a very nice ride and a good location, but the experience was inconsistent.

Harger Line Rail-Trail

great track, nice views

September, 2021 by kdlim5

If you like long straight tracks, then you will enjoy this one. It seems like it might be boring but it is quite scenic and quiet.
