Fred Meijer M6 Trail

The Fred Meijer M-6 Trail was built along the course of the M-6 highway. The trail connects the Kent Trails with the Paul Henry- Thornapple Trail. The trail segment around the M -6/US-131 interchange travels along community sidewalks. The Kent County Parks Department plans to begin construction this summer on the section from Division Avenue to 68th Street.

Kent Trails

The area's oldest paved rail trail, the IS-mile Kent Trails opened in 1992 linking John Ball Park in Grand Rapids to downtown Byron Center. This interconnected series of trails takes you across several bridges, through two tunnels (under I-196 and M-6) and along some very scenic stretches as you pass through several parks in urban, suburban and rural Kent County. The journey from the Millennium trailhead to Byron Center is a popular day trip.

Buck Creek Trail

A beautiful trail that follows the course of Buck Creek through the cities of Grandville and Wyoming, Buck Creek Trail consists of three segments that pass through three parks and a natural area. Riding all three segments of Buck Creek Trail on a single trip requires some good navigation skills, but the reward is well worth the extra effort.

Plaster Creek Trail

Plaster Creek Trail takes you along the course of Plaster Creek as it meanders through southern Grand Rapids. The trail begins on Ken-O-Sha Park Drive (off Kalamazoo Avenue) and travels along a series of paved paths, boardwalks and bridges to Division Avenue.
