I ran a couple miles from the Marina in Petoskey to Bay View and back. About half of my run had some view of the water. The availability of pathways like this one make an area more attractive to visitors and residents.

We love this wheelway. There are some areas that go along the water, some along major streets with lots of busy traffic, so keep that in mind if you have little kids. BUT it is great for getting around the area on your bike.

A wonderful trail! Easy biking for all ages! Beautiful views! The trail is more uphill and challenging from Petoskey to Charlevoix. On the way back to Harbor Springs it seemed more downhill and a bit easier. If you are traveling with children please note that for a stretch there is only one Gas station for about 9 miles on the...

Paved, with multiple sturdy benches, picnic tables and rest areas. A brief section through Bay View unfortunately runs on the side walk along busy US 31. Our favorite stretch is from Bay Harbor to Petoskey's Marina, perfect place for a picnic near one of the two water falls, but busy on warm summer weekends. Paved trail has been recently extended...

Well paved and safe bike route from Harbor to Charlevoix. Those gorgeous bay views can also provide sharp winds. Interesting close up view of the small airport between Harbor and Petoskey and the route at the end of the bay near Petoskey can be confusing so watch carefully. Ask at local cycle shops for safe alternate routes to avoid a... More

This is truly a spectacular Wheelway. A lot of work has been put into the building and maintenance. You can start in Charlevoix and ride, walk, or skate your way almost to Mackinaw. There are many places to stop and enjoy the view or take a break on a bench. Water fountains and bathrooms at various locations are provided. You... More
