The Pere Marquette Rail-Trail follows the Midland to Clare route of the old Flint and Pere Marquette Railroad. This railroad once moved timber to the sawmills and supplies to the thriving logging industry that existed during the last century and before.

This Trail is one of Michigan's best known, offering a well maintained, hard surface for walking, jogging, biking, in-line skating...just about any mode of non-motorized transportation.

It's a traffic-free, handicap accessible, safe and convenient park for participants of all ages! Parking areas, restrooms, and other facilities are well situated along its route.
