Traveling 93 miles
from Grand Rapids to Cadillac on the for- mer Penn Central Railroad, the Fred Meijer White Pine Trail State Park is one of Michi- gan’s most treasured recreational resources. The paved 24-mile stretch from Comstock Park to Sand Lake is quite likely the most popular length of bicycle trail in Michigan. When you ride it, you’ll discover why.
Comstock Park marks the of cial starting point for the trail. The trailhead in down- town Comstock Park is a quarter mile east of the US-131 exit. The trail skirts the West Michigan Whitecaps baseball stadium and heads north along the Grand River. A bridge
over West River Drive takes you north

From Belmont, the trail crosses a ridge and coasts downhill into the Rogue River Valley and downtown Rockford where you’ll travel by several riverside parks, paths and boardwalks, and the Rockford dam.
As you continue north along the edge of the Rogue River, the trail begins a slight uphill climb as it crosses Stegman Creek
at Trestle Park on its way to Cedar Springs and Sand Lake. A new staging area in Cedar Springs, on Elm Street, is just two blocks east of North Main Street. The trail is relatively flat and straight as it races north to down- town Sand Lake. For more information about all of Michigan’s non-motorized, multi-use trails visit: www.MiTrails.org
