Completed in the summer of 2015, the 2.8-mile Upper Macatawa Greenway Trail provides a critical link between the Fred Meijer Kenowa Trail and a vast network of trails in the Holland metro area that lead to the Lake Michigan shoreline.
"Short and sweet," we think you'll relish every inch of this beautifully landscaped trail. Developed and maintained by Ottawa County Parks, this paved path begins at Adams Road and meanders through the Upper Macatawa Natural Area, passing along the Macatawa River, through meadows, grassy wetlands, rolling hills, dense hardwood forest, and several bridges and boardwalks over steep ravines, before crossing another bridge over the river and linking up with the Fred Meijer Kenowa Trail on Byron Road.
You'll find easy access to the trail system at the Upper Macatawa Natural Area trailhead on 84th Street, which also includes access to some nice hiking and mountain biking trails that intersect with the paved trail. This should definitely be on your short list of parks to explore or trails to ride in the coming year.
