Traverse City Trails & Bike Routes Map and Information





The Traverse City area features several paved trails, called the TART Trails. The most popular route, offers picturesque views of Grand Traverse Bay and connects to waterfront parks with sandy swimming beaches. Good for four-season activities, the trails are used for biking, walking, jogging, roller-blading, and cross-country skiing.

Downtown Traverse City has bike routes on several streets, including one near the campus of Northwest Michigan College.

During the summer, the Traverse City area is popular with boaters, golfers, and wine connoisseurs. Grand Traverse Resort, a recreation destination with championship golf courses, is located in nearby Acme. On the Old Mission and Leelanau Peninsulas, an abundance of vineyards can be found, with many offering their own vintage wines. The Old Mission Peninsula Bike Route is a popular route with area cyclists. Suttons Bay and the Leelenau Trail are not too far away.

The region is also recognized for its production of cherries. Each July, Traverse City hosts the National Cherry Festival, which features music, entertainment, an air show, and a bevy of tasty treats. Other Traverse City festivals worth noting are the Traverse City Film Festival and the Bay Equestrian Festival.
