Hart-Montague Bike Trail in Western Michigan

A portion of the trail doubles as an exercise circuit. The same kids that were too tired to pedal any farther has to try out every station!

Trying to make it to the ice cream store...

Here is a look at some of the trail signage and one of the parks that the trail passes by/through.

Hart-Montague Bike Trail in Western Michigan

It was a nice, easy ride for a family. The trail is paved.
Much of the trail has a nice tree canopy.

Even our four-year-old enjoyed it (Note: No training wheels!)

One of many fields of asparagus we passed. While we knew that the area was known for its blueberries and apples, we were not aware that it is the asparagus capital of the U.S. In addition to asparagus fields, the trail passes by a number of orchards and fruit farms.

Hoover Nature Trail Needs Funding, Volunteers

Johnson County Conservation Board members are in favor of a trail system that would involve a portion of the Hoover Nature Trail, but questions remain about who is going to pay for the trail creation and maintenance. Full article from the Iowa City Press-Citizen is here. I for one would volunteer to perform maintenance and upkeep on the trail. If there is anyone else out there that would like to help perform this community service, please speak up.
