Decades of collaborative work and generations of citizens have created this bicycle and hiking trail from a shoreline formerly buried under slabwood, foundry waste, and construction rubble. The route circles Muskegon Lake, from the Pere Marquette beach on Lake Michigan to the Muskegon Nature Preserve, about ten miles in all. Interpretive signage has recently been added, combining nature with history.... More

I love this trail - it's just the right length for a leisurely bike ride and the views of Muskegon Lake are phenomenal! I regularly walk a 2-3 mile portion to and from and it's nice not to have to worry about motor vehicle traffic. Wish it was maintained in the winter. If one adds the portion of the trail... More

OK... I stayed at the Shoreline Inn - and the trail is right outside it. I ran a couple times... ones all the way to Lake Michigan (where you end up off the trail and on sidewalks for the last bit) - and once going northwest toward North Muskegon where there's a sanctuary/park. I saw other cyclists, runners, walkers... smooth... More

Rented a 2 person surrey. Most of trail hidden from roadway, along edge of Muskegon Lake. From downtown to Bluffton; about 10 miles round trip. Beautiful flowers, marshes, creeks. Some trail on roadway but designated bicycle lane. Marinas with boats, boats, boats! Need two people to power surrey!

Well kept, paved scenic trail along the Lakeshore. Recommended for those who just want a leisurely ride or would like to put in a few miles for the day. Nice places to rest and enjoy the sunsets.

This is a well-marked paved trail that goes through some beautiful areas by the lake. It also goes through residential well to do neighborhoods as well as some abandoned industrial buildings. We biked from The Depot to Pere Marquette park and it was great with only a couple of main roads to cross. It's a flat trail so it should... More

I have been walking this path almost every day. I usually go half way starting in North Muskegon then head back. Its a nice scenic path and way prettier than walking along the highway. I'll keep walking until ice prevents me from doing so.

We loved the scenic ride along the lake. There were large swings for adults to stop and enjoy. There was another perch for several people to sit and watch a sunset. The lake was filled with sailboats and the large marinas we rode past were busy. We also rode through a large park. Great afternoon ride with lots to see!

My husband and I rented bikes at the Muskegon Visitors Center and hopped on the bike trail right across the street from the center. It was drizzling when we started but I am glad we persevered because it was a very fun morning! I hadn't been on a bike in about 20 years so the gloomy weather gave me a... More

We have started biking with our kids, ages 7 & 2. We biked down to Grand Trunk landing at the corner of Lakeshore dr & McCraken! We were absolutely amazed at the beautiful sights from the beginning! There is so much to see along the trail. We stopped to swing on the benches. We rode down to Heritage landing before... More
