Paul Henry Thornapple Trail - Middleville to Irving

Trail Video LinkTrail Video

The 3.6-mile segment from Middleville to Irving is a popular stretch of the Paul Henry Thornapple Trail. You'll find a staging area with restrooms behind Middleville Village Hall on East Main Street.

Beginning at the gazebo, the first half-mile stretch passes over two bridges, along a fishing pier, and on to several lookouts with views of vast wetlands and a millpond. It's a great location for birdwatching.

From there, the trail travels along the banks of the Thornapple River. The trail north of downtown Middleville is currently under development.
