Pere Marquette Rail Trail Maps and Information

The Pere Marquette Rail Trail winds its way across the middle of Michigan's Lower Peninsula, travelling west from Baldwin to east of Farwell and then from the eastern edge of Clare to Midland. Following the route used by the Flint and Pere Marquette Railroad, the trail passes through cities big and small.

The paved section from Clare to Midland is very popular with bicyclists, in-line skaters, walkers, and joggers. There are several historic bridges along the trail, including the Tridge in Midland and bridges near Sanford and North Bradley.

Biking, jogging and walking can also be done on the paved segment from Farwell to the west side of Reed City. This section is beautiful during the fall when the trees are in full color.

West of Reed City, the trail is used for mountain biking and hiking to Baldwin. The trail segment is gravel/dirt (and sometimes grass) and can be rugged in spots.

Snowmobilers love using the trail from Baldwin to Farwell during the winter months.

The Pere Marquette equestrian trail moseys almost six miles from Coleman to North Bradley, running parallel with the paved section. There is horse trailer parking at the North Bradley trailhead.

In Reed City, the trail intersects the White Pine Trail, which goes from Comstock Park to Cadillac.
