The Fred Meijer Clinton-Ionia-Shiawassee Trail is a 41.3 mile long improved, non-motorized, non-equestrian, trail located in mid-Michigan in the counties of Clinton, Ionia and Shiawassee. The trail is owned by the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) and is managed by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) with the Mid-West Michigan Trail Authority.  It connects the communities of Ionia, Muir, Pewamo, Fowler, St. Johns, Ovid and Owosso, utilizing a former railroad corridor. The trail traverses mostly rural areas and farming communities, but portions also run near Stoney Creek, Maple River and Grand River watersheds in Ionia County. The trail will be part of the Midwest Regional Rail-Trail Network,  joining on the western end with the Fred Meijer Grand River Valley Trail (Ionia to Lowell), the Fred Meijer Flat River Valley Trail (Lowell to Greenville), and the Fred Meijer Heartland Trail (Greenville to Edmore to Alma) for a total of 125 miles of trails.
