Welcome to our trail!
The Fred Meijer Clinton-Ionia-Shiawassee Trail is a 41.3 mile long unimproved non-motorized trail located in mid-Michigan in the counties of Clinton, Ionia and Shiawassee. The trail, which is owned by the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) and managed by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) and the Mid-West Michigan Trail Authority, connects the communities of Ionia, Muir, Pewamo, Fowler, St. Johns, Ovid and Owosso, utilizing a former railroad corridor. It traverses mostly rural areas and farming communities, but portions also run near the Stoney Creek, the Maple River and the Grand River in Ionia County.
Plans are in place for the Fred Meijer Clinton-Ionia-Shiawassee Trail to be part of the Midwest Regional Rail-Trail Network, joining up on the west 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 trail.
