Pump up your tires and hit the trail! The Little Traverse Wheelway is a 26 mile, non-motorized paved path that extends from Charlevoix to Harbor Springs. It has been the topic of news features, and it continues to be a regional draw for vacationers and residents. This stretch of paved trail extends from Charlevoix to Petoskey to Harbor Springs and draws thousands of walkers, bikers and in-line skaters each year, with some of the most breathtaking scenery to accompany them. This trail offers a unique boardwalk bridging a wetland area rich with wildlife, and direct water access at several points along the Lake Michigan shoreline, including two MDOT roadside parks that are perfect for a picnic or scenic resting spot. Spearheaded by The Top of Michigan Trails Council and host to local and national rides, the free trail has been an effort of several area organizations and municipalities.
