Michigan boasts the largest rail-trail system in the U.S. (Rails-Trails are old railroad lines converted to recreational use.) Hundreds of miles of these and other trails are located in West Michigan.
Fred Meijer M-6 Trail. Runs for nine miles paralleling Michigan Highway 6 just south of Grand Rapids.
Kent Trails. Beginning just outside John Ball Zoo, Kent Trails threads throughout the city. You'll pass everything from industrial sites to rural farmland as the trail winds over and along the Grand River.
Millennium Park. One of the nation's largest urban greenspaces, Millennium Park offers nearly 20 miles of all-purpose trail for cycling, walking, running and in-line skating. Connects to Kent Trails.
Musketawa Trail. This scenic 25-mile trail runs from just northwest of downtown Grand Rapids all along to the lakeshore.
White Pine Trail State Park. At 93.5 miles, this is Michigan's longest rail-trail. Enter the trailhead just north of downtown Grand Rapids and ride through swamps, forests, open farmland, towns and cities.
Reeds Lake Trail. This 4.2-mile trail circles around a picturesque lake just steps away from the charming shopping and dining district of East Grand Rapids.
