A great local trail tucked into the urban center of Grand Rapids. The trail optimizes space available and throws in a few log piles, some great creek scenery, and even a small cable suspension bridge!

Access Info

From Ken-O-Sha Park parking lot, take the Plaster Creek paved trail about 1/4 mile until you see singletrack on your right. Not clearly signed.

       Flat, but tight trail...lots of turns. Can get a little muddy in the springtime.
