Grand River Edges Trail


Grand River Edges Trail

The Grand River Edges Trail system guides you along the banks of the Grand River. It links downtown Grand Rapids to Kent Trails and Millennium Park, and includes 2.2 miles of paved path in Riverside Park that connects to the Fred Meijer White Pine Trail State Park.

The downtown loop of the Grand River Edges Trail from Fulton Street to the 6th Street Bridge is a popular stroll for visitors and local residents. The "loop" traverses the original rapids for which the city was named and passes by some of the area's most notable attractions, including the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum, the Grand Rapids Public Museum, Bridgewater Place, DeVos Place Convention Center, Fish Ladder Park, 6th Street Bridge Park, Amway Grand Plaza Hotel, and the downtown campus of Grand Valley State University. You will need to ride along a designated bike lane on Monroe Street to connect with the paved paths between Leonard and Ann Streets.
