A popular destination for runners, cyclists or those seeking a scenic stroll through nature's beauty, the 4.5-mile Big Rapids Riverwalk offers intimate views of the Muskegon River as it follows along the water's edge.
With plenty of lodging, recreational options and good places to eat, Big Rapids is an ideal location to spend a weekend exploring the Riverwalk, riding the Fred Meijer White Pine Trail or soaking up the local hospitality. You'll find ample parking and easy access to the Riverwalk trail system as it travels through a series of city parks and connects with the Fred Meijer White Pine Trail at Northend Riverside Park.
The Riverwalk consists of a series of bridges, boardwalks and paved pathways with several picnic areas and fishing plat- forms thoughtfully placed along the way. The trail system was designed to provide picture-perfect views and easy access to the river for people of all physical abilities.
Beyond the trails and paths, the Muskegon River offers many recreational opportunities of its own, from paddlesports and tubing to fishing and bird watching.
