Hastings Riverwalk

Another scenic section of the Paul Henry Thomapple Trail, the 2.4-mile Hastings Riverwalk was completed in 2015 from the former railbed on Industrial Park Drive to a circular loop at Bliss Riverfront Park. The paved multi-use trail is part of a proposed network of paths and nature trails currently under development along the Thomapple River by the city of Hastings. Hastings is a popular destination for paddles ports and home of the world-famous Barry-Roubaix Killer Gravel Road Race in the spring. You'll find bicycle and kayak rentals, lodging and several good places to eat in Hastings.

Middleville to Irving

The 4.6-mile segment through Middleville to Irving is the most scenic and popular stretch of the Paul Henry Thomapple Trail. You'll find a staging area behind Middleville Village Hall. The newest section of trail north of downtown is beautifully landscaped and crosses several bridges. Beginning at the gazebo, the first half-mile south passes over two bridges and on to several lookouts with views of vast wetlands. It's a great location for birdwatching. From there, the trail travels along the banks of the river through a long tunnel of trees to Irving. A beautiful ride.
