We walked the bike trail

We enjoyed a walk along the lakeshore. Beautiful flowers, views and animal life. Stopped in at the candy show for a treat and continued enjoying our walk.

We rode south from Grand Haven to Kirk Park. The bike path itself is not very well maintained and there are bumps at every driveway. This path is basically a neighborhood ride. There are no views of the lake.

We love finding new bike paths. We have the Michigan Trails Magazine. The tail was easy quit flat. However what it said about the view was nothing what we saw. Just a few hundred yards of the lake. The rest was out in the sun, weeded railroad tracks, broken down paper mill and buildings. A few nice condos, plus ride... More

This is an interesting trail because it runs through the city, nature preserves, expansive waterfronts, places to stop along the way. It starts or ends at Lake Michigan!

From the Frosty Cove ice cream spot near the old paper mill site to the nearly unknown North Muskegon marshland park, it's about a 20 mile round trip. Many trex deck and plank bridges and passes over streams, past nearly abandoned railroad tracks. This trail passes candy shops, hotdog shacks, a WW2 LST open for tours, Heritage Landing park, wilderness... More

There are so many views you can take, woods, board walk, the pier, along Muskegon Lake with the butterflies. It's free, enjoy! Behind the Candy Emporium there are nice swings and gazebos to sit or picnic.

This is a great place to ride your bike. Scenic view of the lake, wildlife, flowers, benches if you need a break and so peaceful.

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
