West Michigan Bike Trails You’ll Love

Training wheels or not, if you have a way to transport bikes to a different location, you’ll have miles of Michigan to explore.

You can do an easy one or two mile ride on a paved path, or venture out for something longer or more challenging.

There are many Grand Rapids bike trails that hook up to other parks or scenic areas, and many include ice cream pitstops.

Our family loves biking the White Pines Trail at Comstock Park and riding to Rockford for dinner and then topping it off with ice cream at the end of the trip back in Comstock Park. Find this trip and other great family bike paths listed below.

PS – Bike trails are just one part of the expansive parks systems around Grand Rapids. If you don’t have your bike with you, you can still enjoy hiking trails, parks & playgrounds, and even splash pads.

  1. What a great list! I love riding bikes with my family and it will be fun to have some new destinations in mind. It is a bit of work right now because we have a tag-along plus a Burley and then our 2 adult bikes and 1 child bike to transport- that means we do a lot of neighborhood rides. Do you have any tips on how to get so much gear from point a to point b easily?
