The City of Grandville and the City of Wyoming teamed up to build a trail system that follows Buck Creek. The project started 30 years ago and has developed into a system of beautiful trails along the creek. The trail is currently in three segments. One from the Baldwin Street Trailhead in Jenison, Michigan to Broadway St. in Grandville. This is the newest segment. The next is down Canal St. to the Grandville segment which goes through Wedgewood Park. The third piece is the Wyoming segment which starts at Lemery Park, goes through the Buck Creek Nature preserve and finishes out at Palmer Park. Westmichigantrails.com says it takes some navigational skills to complete but is well worth the effort in the end.

Pere Marquette Rail-Trail

The Pere Marquette Rail-Trail (PMRT) is a rail trail in Michigan occupying an 28-mile (45 km) abandoned CSX railroad corridor in Midland County and Isabella County that was once part of the Flint and Pere Marquette Railroad. In 1874, the tracks stretched from Ludington to Flint, transporting supplies to the timber industry and lumber/timber to southern Michigan’s mills. It is a Michigan Rails to Trails Conservancy Hall of Fame trail.

The trail is paved with asphalt for hiking and bicycling and is up to 14 feet (4.3 m) wide. The PMRT should not be confused with the Pere Marquette State Trail.

History

The trail is named after the Flint and Pere Marquette Railroad, named after Jacques Marquette, a French Jesuit missionary who founded Michigan’s first European settlement at Sault Ste. Marie. Père is the French word for father; ergo, Father Marquette.

The first portion of the trail opened in June 1993. This portion was almost wholly contained in the city of Midland, Michigan and started at The Tridge.

Future

The original plans for the rail trail called for extending it west to Ludington, Michigan where ferry service would provide access to Wisconsin.

Lansing River Trail is a multiple use, non-motorized trail approximately 13 miles (21 km) long. It runs along the Grand River and the Red Cedar River between Michigan State University and Dietrich Park in northern Lansing.

The trail has a western extension that begins where it splits off at River Point park just south of downtown Lansing and ends in Moores Park. The River Trail South stretches along Sycamore Creek from Potter Park to Maguire Park in southeast Lansing. The stretch from Hawk Island County Park to Maguire Park was completed in 2008.

The River Trail is also home to a number of special events, including the Common Ground Music Festival, the Annual Mayor’s Walk, Michigan Run, the Capital City River Run and a number of other city-sponsored activities.

The trail is currently being extended into Delhi Township to connect with an existing trail in Holt, as well as east to west across south Lansing.
