The Fred Meijer Clinton-Ionia-Shiawassee Trail is a 41.3 mile, 12 ft. wide, packed crushed limestone, with 10 ft. wide asphalt surface in towns for a total of 8 miles of asphalt. It is non-motorized, non-equestrian, trail located in mid-Michigan in the counties of Clinton, Ionia and Shiawassee. It connects the communities of Ovid, St. Johns, Fowler, Pewamo and Muir/Lyons utilizing a former railroad corridor.

The trail parallels M-21 and 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 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 and maintained by volunteers of the Friends of the Fred Meijer Clinton-Ionia-Shiawassee Trail.

The trail is 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.
