The Harger Line Rail-Trail runs for an arrow-straight 10 miles through farmland in rural Saginaw County. The trail opened in 2008, two years after the underlying Harger Line Railway corridor was acquired by the Michigan Department of Transportation.
The scenic trail features 5 bridges over creeks and intersects several unpaved country roads. Trail users should be aware that the two major crossings of Portsmouth Road and State Route 83/Gera Road are uncontrolled intersections; extreme caution must be exercised when passing through. Benches along the entire length of the trail allow users to take a rest or simply enjoy the surrounding tranquility.
The Harger Line Rail-Trail’s western trailhead can be accessed by taking Interstate 75 to the Holland Road/M-46 exit and heading east. After just 0.75 mile, take a left on Towerline Road; parking is available a short distance up the road at Kueffner Park.
The eastern trailhead (which offers ample parking) is located where the trail meets Saginaw Road/ M-15 just west of Richville. The parking lot is on the south side of Saginaw Road/ M-15. Look for the large brown trail sign.
