North Bank Trail Description

The North Bank Trail will one day stretch 18 miles from Spring Lake to Marne, on the western outskirts of Grand Rapids. Currently, six miles are complete on the trail's western end, beginning at a connection to the Lakeside Trail  in the Village of Spring Lake and ending in Nunica, MI. This section parallels State Route 104 along the former Grand Trunk Railroad.

Eventually, the trail will continue farther east to the Musketawa Trail in Marne. The Spoonville Trail is scheduled to completed in the fall of 2020 which will connect to the North Bank Trail in Nunica. This will offer a great regional connection in the NW Ottawa County area.

Parking is available near the North Bank Trail's western end in Spring Lake's Central Park (817 Central Avenue) and at the trailhead located approximately 0.25 mile north of SR 104 on 144th Avenue.

North Bank Trail Reviews

This trail is so smooth and the color was very pretty today. You can now start in Nunica on the east end. It will soon connect with the Spoonerville Trail on the east end. And it connects with the Lakeside Trail on the west end. I'll ride it again.

North Bank Trail - Connection to Spoonville and Phase 2

Phase 2 of the NBT was just completed in July 2020. One can now ride a regional paved trail from Nunica to the beaches of Grand Haven without riding on a road (10-12 miles). The North Bank Trail will connect to Phase 2 of the Spoonville Trail that is currently under construction and offer a non-motorized route to the south side of the Grand River. The NBT is located mostly in attractive rural landscapes but conveniently connects into local business districts.

Where does it go?

Very nice new trail from 144th St. all the way to Nunica.
At the trailhead in Nunica, there is a sign pointing south for the Spoonville Trail. There is no trail, shoulder, sidewalk or markings for this. Where does it join the Spoonville??
