Great for biking, rollerblading and walking. Our family uses River Trail all the time. It is also a good route to get to area parks without using your car.

Not enough time to see it all. Will go back. I like to compare places and events and activities and environment.

I've lived in Lansing for the better part of my life, and have only been a runner now since 2005. Now that I have two Marathons, a dozen 1/2 marathons and too many 5Ks to count, the one thing I know I can do to get the mileage in and not have to worry about traffic is the River Trail.... More

The Lansign River Trail is an excellent paved recreational and commutiong trail through the heart of the city. The south extension to Jolly Road is particularly scenic. Looking forward to future connections and extensions!

I love this trail; it is 14 miles in length and i like to walk, run, cycle, and sometimes roller-blade. I, like many others, also use this as a useful commute for work or school since it is so long.

Better than many typical trails. The river views are interesting and the nearby attractions are worth exploring.

I enjoy this trail a lot because it's very pretty. However, I've parked over behind the whiskey barrel (if it's still called that) and my car got broken into and purse got stolen. There went $80 and credit cards, not to mention other annoying things. Therefore, the trail is great if you can park somewhere out in the open. Apparently... More

This trail is beautiful! A definite must! It is for the most part flat so it's a nice ride or walk! You can start at the zoo and go into east Lansing. It's a beautiful trail especially in the fall with changing colors.

Nice scenic views along the river. Great bike path or just lovely to take a stroll. Fun for families or couples.
