Laketon Trail Description

The Laketon Trail offers an important connection between the Muskegon Lakeshore Trail and the Musketawa Trail in the City of Muskegon. The paved pathway largely parallels Laketon Avenue, along the former Grand Trunk Railroad, offering a convenient way across town with access to businesses, schools, and residential neighborhoods.

As travelers cross Jefferson Street, they'll also have access to the Jefferson Historic District, which has large Victorian and Queen Ann style homes.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at Marsh Field (a baseball facility) on Peck Street and at Reese Playground, which is one block north of the trail off E. Forest Avenue.

Laketon Trail Reviews


This trail is essentially an expanded sidewalk to get from the Musketawa Trail to downtown Muskegon. trails. It starts as a very smooth new trail running through an Industrial Park and winds its way to Laketon Avenue. From there it is a wide sidewalk through a commercial district with a lot of traffic on the streets. A number of side street crossings are needed, but a good flow can be maintained.
However once the trail reaches the Men's Shelter, the trail veers away from Laketon Ave and leads to a sketchy area with homeless living in tents along the way. Once it reaches a basketball court by vacant buildings, it seems to end with no signs of how to reach downtown.
Trying to determine where I needed to go to reach downtown via map was less appealing than reversing course and beginning the 28 miles back to the beginning of the Musketawa Trail, so I abandoned the search for the water. Signage is needed.
