love this place. Biking on the trail is fantastic, especially near the sunset. It is so beautiful. We will absolutely come back again. The trail is nice, safe, a lot of nice restaurants on the way as well.

We rented an apt with views of the Wheelway in Petoskey. It runs for 26 miles from Charlevoix to Harbor Springs and is a beehive of activity: bikers, walkers, babies in strollers, dogs on leashes. We walked some distance on the wheelway along Bayfront Park, a beautiful area below the downtown. A great place to visit.

My boyfriend and I had just moved to Petoskey and wanted to explore the town more. The wheel way is a great bike/walking/running path for anyone and it has beautiful views of the water.

Awesome trail. Well marked and nicely paved. Great views of the lake. Good for bikes, walkers, joggers, dogs on leashes. Lots of benches placed at intervals.

The best! Our entire family bicycled the distance from Harbor Springs all the way to Bay Harbor and perhaps even further. And, did I mention that fabulous view of Little Traverse Bay?It was a good trip for people in good physical shape who get regular exercise; but somewhat of a challenge for others. This is the second best way to... More

Although most people bike the trail, our mother-daughter group chose to walk. Easy but long walk (5 hours). Remember to put on bug spray and sun screen. The biggest challenge we had was water - you will have to carry a few bottles each as there is no place to refill. When you get to the end of the trail,... More

The stretch between Petoskey State Park and Bay Harbor is especially nice -- mostly away from the road, and along the water. Between Petoskey and Bay Harbor there are a few "pocket parks" with great views and stairs down to the water. Worth stopping to take a peek or a rest.

Biking the Little Traverse Wheelway was such a highlight for us! We were camping at Petoskey State Park, and the path passes right be there, so one day we biked from there to downtown Petoskey, and then to Bay Harbour and then to Charlevoix and then back! The path is smoothly paved, flat, away from traffic and cars, well-marked and... More

My family takes the bike trail from Petoskey to Charlevoix each year. It is an enjoyable ride with many stops to look at the beautiful scenery of Little Traverse Bay.

I took my daughter and two granddaughters (ages 8 & 12) cycling on the trail from Petoskey to Harbor Springs, and they had the time of their lives. The trail is easy riding, there are plenty of places along the bay to stop and enjoy the water, and the kids loved seeing a variety of wildlife and hunting for Petoskey... More
