Has a nice, paved surface but would not recommend for hiking, more for biking and maybe running. Was hiking from Lansing downtown to EL on this trail and it wasn’t terrible, but annoying to deal with/evade so many bikers on that trail

This is a great paved trail-I like to use it for distance runs since it offers a lot of mileage. There's a variety of scenery as it winds through the woods, past Potter Park Zoo, and through downtown Lansing along the river. I've always felt safe running there and typically run into a light to moderate amount of bikers/walkers/runners.

The Lansing River Trail is fairly large and can lead to places all over the capital. Many parts of the trail can ice over in winter and flood in Spring, but the city is working on renovating those parts in the next year or two. Great park for walking and biking!

Awesome paved trail for hiking and biking. Takes you along the river downtown, past the Potter Park Zoo, as well as several parks in the area. One of my favorite trails to take family and friends when they visit the area. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
