Delhi Township Trails

The Delhi Township Trails are a growing network of paved interurban multi-use paths that connect the community of Holt with the Lansing River Trail. Completed in 2014, the main trail route consists of two trail segments. The Valhalla Trail travels 1.5 miles from Holt Road to Willoughby Road, passing through Valhalla Park. The Sycamore Trail continues north for 2.1 miles, passing under Interstate 96 and over Sycamore Creek, connecting with the Lansing River Trail and South Lansing Pathway near Maguire Park. Both trails pass along a series of linear lakes; remnants of the ancient "hogsback," as it was called by early settlers.

The hogsback, an "esker" in geologic terms, was a ridge of nearly pure gravel formed by glaciers that once ran south through Holt and Mason to the village of Eden. Nearly all traces of the hogsback were mined out years ago. Valhalla Park was built on one of these lakes, and offers a nice beach, swimming area, restrooms, picnicking and a great place to begin your ride on the Delhi Township Trails. A new section of the Ram Trail along Holt Road, from Eifert Road to Holt High School, was completed in fall 2015 and will eventually link to the Valhalla Trail. A future trail is planned that will someday connect Valhalla Trail to the Hayhoe Trail in Mason.

South Lansing Pathway

The 5.8-mile South Lansing Pathway was completed in the fall of 2014. This paved multi-use path travels from Waverly Road through Benjamin Davis Park along a Consumers Energy utility corridor to Maguire Park, where it connects with the Lansing River Trail and the Sycamore Trail. From Maquire Park, a northeastern segment of the trail passes through Biggie Munn Park to Cavanaugh Road, where it will eventually be extended to Spartan Village on the MSU campus. This east/west interurban trail travels through a mostly residential area, offering local residents with easy access to the entire Lansing area network of trails. The trail was thoughtfully designed with signalized crossings, or HAWK signals, providing safe crossings on busy streets.
