Alpena's Bi-Path covers 14 miles of ground in an urban landscape, taking in scenic views of Lake Huron and Thunder Bay River, as well as skirting Alpena Wildlife Sanctuary. The paved trail follows a level, and in places winding, course. One loop nearly circles Alpena Wildlife Sanctuary, while another loop stretches from Water Works Park on the lake up to the wildlife sanctuary then west to the high school.
Another long segment runs from Carter Street along the river northwest to Lake Besser before meeting up with the wildlife sanctuary loop. Two short, disconnected segments take in Bayview Park on one end of the city and the western side of the wildlife sanctuary.
The trail system links civic attractions, neighborhoods, schools, parks, the unpaved Alpena to Hillman Trail and businesses. For more information about each different segment and its length, as well as access, parking and amenity information, click on the link to the right under Related Content.
