Meet at the West River Drive commuter lot by 131 and Whitecaps stadium at 10am to carpool. We will drive up to my cabin on the Hersey River east of Reed City. The White Pine Trail is paved from Big Rapids to Reed City.The Pere Marquette Trail is paved from Reed City to almost Clare. The bike ride down to the Muskegon River Bridge and back would be about 30 miles. We will stop at Paris Park and feed the trout. The short "ice cream" ride is from the cabin to Reed City and back.
Bars and restaurants are in Reed City, Hersey and Big Rapids. These bike trails are paved and are lightly used even on weekends. Non bikers can walk the trail or walk to Blodgett Landing which is where the Hersey River flows into the Muskegon River. (Can kayak both)
