    Possible trails between Grand Rapids and Muskegon????

    I already posted on the MMBA forum but I am curious as to the interest you W. MI riders would have in building a trail in the Ravenna/Coopersville area. There is already the Musketawa Rail Trail that gets a lot of recreational traffic as well as the hardcore roadies training. But we don't have anything for the fat tire crowd unless driving to Bass River, C-burg, Owasippe, etc. I know a lot of the big farmers in the area and could make a strong case to build a trail in some of their woods. Really nice stuff, lots of options, rolling terrain. Set up a box to pay or even pay at the houses. Just a few bucks a ride or like 20 for a season pass. I know there are lots of riders in the area that could benefit and if we built a top notch trail people would come from farther away to ride. I know people would come because I see full parking lots at the Rail Trail trailhead. If we get the word out and do a good job this could be pretty sweeet! Let me know what you guys think. I have the summer off so I would be able to spent A LOT of time working on something. Please comment, question, debate

    Look forward to seeing if there is interest.

    Happy trails.

    You are talking about putting in a mountain bike trail correct. If so that would be great. We can always use more.

    yeah, that would be amazingly awesome. that whole area is seemingly devoid of good trails. i have found a few trails, but they're either on private property or mediocre at best

    The whole deal kinda fell through for widespread public access. I, personally, have access and I can bring people out with me, but not unsupervised. Shoot me a pm sometime this spring/summer and I will take you out there if you want. Still not sure what they have for trails, I will prolly be building some.
    Winter is coming.
