When complete, the LaSalle Trail will travel an arrow-straight 3.5 miles between Roseland Town Park in Roseland and the Indiana–Michigan state line. Michigan is currently working on building a trail that stretches north from the border to the city of Niles. As of 2013, the LaSalle Trail—occupying a former interurban railroad corridor—passes through suburban back yards from Douglas Street north to Cleveland Road.
Parking for the LaSalle Trail can be found in a small lot at the intersection of Cripe Street and McCombs Street, along the north side of Roseland Town Park.
This is one of my favorite local rides. Last fall (2022) the county added another cycle safety light at Auten Rd. Similar to the safety light at Cleveland, it makes this trail one of the safest in the area.
Flat tide on a cement trail. Benches online the trail. Not much shade so in the summer months it may be a hot ride, A few roads that you need to cross.
This trail is a mile if you walk out to Michigan St at the south end. As promised, the LaSalle Big Blue-stem trail has prairie grass along it. Though close to the highway, it is surprisingly quiet and secluded. There are a lot of birds along this trail. While flat, it is sun filled and green. There is also parking and access at the dead-ends at the west end of W Clark St. and W Willow Dr. There is also Visitor parking at the Cripe St. crossing.
