Though the Millennium Trail runs just over a mile, it connects several attractions in the southern Michigan city of Portage. Its east end connects to the scenic Portage Creek Bicentennial Trail, offering four miles of scenic, paved pathway. Here, you can also access Celery Flats, where an interpretive center and collection of restored historical buildings tell the story of the celery industry in Kalamazoo County.
Continue west on the Millennium Trail and you’ll parallel the south side of Garden Lane; after crossing busy Westnedge Avenue (where you’ll find easy access to restaurants and shops), you’ll enter a serene tree-lined corridor as you head north to Romence Road. After crossing the roadway, the trail runs through Millennium Park, before winding up to its end at Crossroads Mall.
Parking and restrooms can be found in Celery Flats (7335 Garden Lane) and on the north end of Millennium Park (280 Romence Road).
This is a nice link between the Northwest Portage Bikeway and the Portage Creek Bicentiennial Trail. The trail gets away from the traffic and meanders through a wooded area with 3 lakes (or ponds). The trail is smooth and paved.
I live right next to this trail and it's always a lot of fun but be mindful of the dozens of people. It connects to many places like the Crossroads mall, which makes it easy to hang out with friends.
