Biking in Kent County

Real Estate Agent with JH Realty Partners 6501309180

We have a large biking community in Kent County, while I was dusting off my own bike for exercise; I wonder how many biking trails we have in Kent County.  So I did a little research and found we have many beautiful areas - trails we can use our bikes on.  Now the question is; do I ride my bike to the trail or do I drive there and then get out my bike and ride?  I write this with a grin on my face.  As I know the proper thing to do is to ride my bike there, but I am afraid I will be too tired from the trip to enjoy the trail!


Here is a list of links to local bike trails.




Kent Trails - 15 miles long - handicap assessable and a great trail for beginner roller bladders!

While on this trail you can stop and visit Millennium Park, once finished it will be larger then New York's Central Park, making it the largest urban park in the nation.

Paul Henry Thornapple Trail - 42 miles bike

Fred Meijer White Pine Trail State Park - 92 Miles long

Reeds lake Trail - 4.2 miles (this one is more my speed!)


Beyond the Kent county area go to the Official biking directory and find a trail that interest you, as there are many to choose from.


Are you trail enthusiast and want to get involved?  Check out the West Michigan trails and greenways coalition, they are a non profit dedicated to developing non-motorized trails and greenways into a linked system that connects wilderness areas, parks, historic landmarks and cultural sites throughout west Michigan.

 bikehappy biking everyone!

Way to go.  I have just starting walking the neighborhood again since the weather is great.  Can't wait to go hiking.  Have a great time biking.
