We enjoy riding our bikes while others walk or run on the trail. It's wonderful to be able to be out enjoying the fresh air.

We have walked along the trail several times, even though we don't live or work in Lansing, and it isn't convenient for us. For MSU students or those who work in Lansing, it is a great, handy trail. We have seen interesting birds along it, and it is a great trail for short sections or long. If you change your... More

Our daughter works near the trail, so we've used it for walking with kids, etc. while waiting for her to finish her day, or to spend a bit of time before or after lunch with her. There seem to be lots of bikes, which is OK, but with little kids you do have to watch them a bit. Also have... More

After living out in the country for 30 years my husband and I moved to the city of Lansing. We love riding our bikes on the River Trail. We feel like we could be up north and on vacation when in reality we are just minutes away from our home.

Great place to go walking. Well maintained and feels safe during the day. I have talked from downtown at Kzoo street all the way to Turner Dodge House. A gem in Lansing.

Don't miss this feature of the area, which has been largely unnoticed as it has grown and expanded and improved over the past decade. It is now an amazing and well-used set of routes through downtown and out to parks. A wonderful summer, spring, and fall place to walk and bike!

Well kept trail. Clean and a nice length. However there have been problems with some weird people approaching those using the trails so go with a companion.

The River Trail is excellent for visitors and residents, alike. It offers a refreshing look at Lansing's natural beauty and you can get from Old Town to MSU's Campus! Great for fun or exercise.
