Get ready to be wowed - Grand Rapids never fails to surprise visitors with the huge variety of things to see and do here: World-renowned art, museums and historic sites for cultural vacationers. World-class golf, recreation and beaches for nature lovers. Incredible farm-to-table restaurants for foodies and wholesome "playcation" fun for families.
Experienced Bikers Only: The Merrell Trail The Merrell Trail in Rockford is another local favorite for its fast descents, table-top jumps, roots, rocks, and elevated bridges and structures. Although it is open to all trail users, this trail was built and designed specifically for intermediate and experienced mountain bikers. You’ve been warned: Sawtooth, the most advanced section of Merrell Trail, is quite challenging and not for the faint of heart. Unlike some of the other trails in the area, Merrell Trail users can expect the direction of the trails to change depending on the day. Despite these changing trails, all trails are marked well and you’ll be able to determine which direction to ride and what segment of trail you’re on once you’ve started. Pro Tip: if you’re in the mood for a longer ride, you can cruise north from Grand Rapids up the White Pine Trail to access both Merrell or Luton from 10 Mile in Rockford.
