Loved the bike trail! Wide and fairly well marked but you have to look for the bike route signs by the marina and Magnus park. We rode from Petoskey to Charlevoix and back but give yourself plenty of time. You do have to cross some driveways and streets in Petoskey so pay attention. The scenery was nice, especially by the...

We used petosky as a home base where we rented bikes. One day went to harbor springs and all around the bay view area and the next day up to where the paved trail ends north of alanson, mi. The surface was great with views along the way, you can continue on tha path but it is grass and some... More

Great place to ride our recumbents . You can pick your distance and direction. Trail runs along the water in many spots.

My husband, 10 year old, 7 year old and I biked from Petoskey State Park to the Cliffs (not quite all the way to Bay Harbor) and it was a wonderful trip! I highly recommend this multi-use trail.

this trail is my favorite in Michigan. The bay is in site much of the trail and you can in at the deli in Bay Harbor. The barbecue chicken pizza is the best.

I came up here to kayak but took an extra day so I could explore Petoskey and the LTW. It was a great ride with beautiful views of the bay and quaint parks. I was told to go south towards Charlevoix which was perfect for me. I am thankful to the people who come up with these ideas and shared... More

Anyone who likes to bike should try this bike path. Asphalt and well-maintained. Gorgeous views of the bay. We preferred heading south from Petoskey towards Charlevoix. The path from Petoskey to Harbor Springs has a long stretch of bike lane along a busy road--too dangerous with kids.

Great ride...nice views of the lake...not too busy going toward Charlevois. The ride toward Harbor Springs is mostly along a busy highway.

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
