We bike from Holt to Old Town multiple times during the summer. It is nice to be connected. I'm so glad they expanded and continue to expand. We oftentimes will find somewhere to eat for lunch downtown and bike home afterward. Well maintained.

We enjoy riding our bikes while others walk or run on the trail. It's wonderful to be able to be out enjoying the fresh air.

Great place to go walking. Well maintained and feels safe during the day. I have talked from downtown at Kzoo street all the way to Turner Dodge House. A gem in Lansing.

I will be visiting the area tomorrow and would like to rent a bike to explore the River Trail. I will have a rental car so I won't be able to transport a bike to the trail. Is there a bike rental company close?
