Northern Tier Trail Description

The Northern Tier Trail winds through East Lansing on the outskirts of Michigan's capital, offering miles of paved pathway through tree-lined areas and wetlands. The 10-foot-wide trail connects several community parks, recreational facilities and neighborhoods. Not far west of the trail, you can enjoy shops and restaurants off Lake Lansing Road, and the trail is only about a mile north of downtown and the Michigan State University campus.

Parking and Trail Access

Multiple parking lots are available along the trail; visit East Lansing's official website for details.

Northern Tier Trail Reviews

Drove in circles trying to find the parking spots identified on the map. Finally found the rode to the parking lot and it was closed. What we could see of the trail was pretty much like sidewalks. If I wanted to ride through neighborhoods I would have rode at home.

It follows some sort of drainage line, and runs through some residential stuff that I was hoping to get away from.

It looks like a beautiful Picture, but its upside down. Can you fix it?
