The Paul Henry — Thornapple Trail, when complete, will be a 42 mile multi-use recreation trail, from Grand Rapids to Vermontville, Michigan. The trail is being constructed on or near a former railroad corridor. Some sections of the trail are completed, some are in development and some are in the proposal or conceptual stage.

This is a beautiful trail that winds thru suburbs, farm fields, and woodlands. Lots of wild life to see and enjoy.

Currently the FKT route is the complete 10 mile section between Bowen Park and Caledonia.  See the map here:
