Lansing River Trail of Ingham County, Michigan
8.2 miles long.
The Lansing River Trail (LRT) is a multiple use, nonmotorized trail of 7 miles in length. It meanders along the banks of the Red Cedar and Grand Rivers between Michigan State University (MSU) and North Lansing. In addition there is a spur that runs from River Point Park to Moore’s River Park following the Grand River upstream for more than a mile. The trail traverses through a variety of habitats and natural environments. The trail provides direct river access to fisherman and offers walking/running, biking, and inline skating opportunities. The LRT links many of Lansing’s city parks together, as well as downtown and neighborhood business districts and many other community attractions including historic museums, farmers market, and the city’s convention center. In 2004, the Mid-Michigan Environmental Action Council (Mid MEAC) received a grant from the DALMAC Bike Tour to assess the use and users of the LRT. To accomplish this they contracted with researchers from the Department of Community, Agriculture, Recreation and Resource Studies at MSU to conduct a study of trail use and to profile trail users. - Details on this report
