The majority of Michigan State Parks have short 3-5 mile biking trails, but there are a couple nice long trails scattered across the state. The 34.5-mile Kal-Haven Trail State Park is enjoyed by almost 100,000 visitors each year. The trail is built upon the abandoned railroad bed of the Kalamazoo and South Haven Railroad. Limestone and crushed slag were used to make the roadbed of the trail.

The 22 mile long Betsie Valley Trail runs from Frankfort to Thompsonville and passes through Beulah and Elberta. It is paved with asphalt from Frankfort to Mollineaux Rd. and from Beulah to Thompsonville it is a gravel-based trail.
