The Grand Haven area offers paved trails, bike lanes, sidewalks and the waterfront boardwalk for avid bike enthusiasts or those looking to take a sunset cruise. While many of these areas are crowded with visitors, the Lakeshore Trail, a twenty mile paved path that runs parallel with Lakeshore Drive, is the perfect place to get away and experience nature at its finest. The trail connects the Grand Haven and Holland communities, beginning at Grand Haven State Park and ending at Holland State Park. You can also find direct access to the Tri-Cities Trail Network from our parking lot—gaining access to miles of paved paths and bike lanes, interwoven throughout the community. The 15 mile Lakeside Trail encircles Spring Lake through the communities of Ferrysburg, Fruitport and Spring Lake with more trails like the Grand River Greenway Trail stretching north offering views of the Grand River. Whether renting, planning a lakeshore galore getaway, or in need of a repair – getting on a bike and peddling through the town is one of the best and most inexpensive ways to check out our views and experience many of Grand Haven’s memorable attractions!
