This was probably one of the better bike trails that I've ridden on around the country. The pavement was quite smooth with no cracks. There were quite a few long boardwalks. Path was at least six feet wide.

This trail travels through several cities. It's paved and has easy access. Stop by the little shops in Lakeside on your way to Lake Michigan. There are good restaurants in the downtown Muskegon area right on the trail.

there are different types of bikes that people with disabilities can ride. there are trikes with hand or foot pedals. this trail doesn't provide any bikes if that's what you're looking for.
