the Wheelway is nicely done and wide enough for two cyclists to ride or pass comfortably BUT beware runners can be unaware of cyclists and some are downright rude...share the Wheelway

I am fairly new to biking, but this trail was amazing. The views of the water are spectacular. It takes you through countless parks, through downtown Petoskey and passes by some amazing lookout points. We did not finish the trail because I can only go so far right now, but we know we will return to Petoskey just so we... More

Rode from Bay View to Charlevoix! You feel safe and the path is smooth and well maintained! They did a great job with this path!

This is a great bike path that I have taken advantage of my last three summers in Petoskey. Every weekend, I try to make it a habit to ride from Petoskey into Harbor Springs and back. Not only does this provide me with a great exercise routine, but the actual path and views of the lake, both in Petoskey and... More

This wheelway connects Charlevoix, Bay Harbor, Petoskey, Bay View, Alanson and Harbor Springs. The variety of scenery cannot be beat. Whether you are walking, running or biking, you will want to return to this venue; it connects all the major attractions of these beautiful Northern Lower Michigan towns (downtown Charlevoix, Bay Harbor, downtown Petoskey, Petoskey waterfront, Bay View association, Petoskey...

This path is so awesome! If you are anywhere near Petoskey, Harbor Springs, Charlevoix, or Alanson in the Spring to Fall times, make sure to get on your bike or feet and check out this trail. I used it all the time to bike to the Petoskey State Park Beach, run to East Park, check out Bay Harbor, fly a... More

This is easily one of the most scenic bike trails in the USA. Most of this trail is fast and flat, with a few hills between Bay Harbor and Harbor Springs. If you like water views, this is the ride for you! Tip: turn off at Beach Road (between Petoskey and Harbor Springs) and ride along the water. Also...just south... More

I can't say enough about this dedicated bike trail. It's wide, well kept, and incredibly beautiful. We make the 4 hour drive at least twice a year just to ride this trail. The views of the bay and Lake Michigan are exceptional, as well as the towns of Petoskey and Charlevoix and Harbor Springs. It's a gem, and very special... More

I read about the Little Traverse Wheelway in a bike magazine a couple of years ago and was enamored by the description. This past year, we planned a bike trip in northern Michigan that included this bike path and found it to be all that we hoped. The scenery along Lake Michigan is spectacular. Most rail-trails are pretty flat but... More
