Paved trail ideal for a nice walk along the river. Really great for birding. It is common to see deer in the mornings and evenings.

Fully paved, lots of on leash dogs, cyclists, and golf carts early on. Scenery and traffic gets better past the first half towards the end

Very nice paved shared bike trail along Grand River. Easy parking at trail head just follow GPS coordinates on site.

We drove to this trail to the access points and there is no parking. Looked very busy and just a paved path. Not what we were looking for.
