Detroit Riverfront

The Detroit Riverfront trail is a great way to take in both the sights of the river, with Canada not so far away, and the city itself as it abuts right up to the trail. There are various plazas, which have public art and fountains (such as those at GM Plaza) which act as gathering spots for those taking breaks while walking the trail or just looking for nice spot by the river. Other fun sights include a wetlands and light house. All this combines together to make for a perfect spot to take a leisurely walk that is urban yet not urban. I know there are plans to extend the riverwalk, so hopefully that will come to fruition! For now, it is best to enjoy what has been accomplished.

Amazing vistas, semi-rugged terrain, and relative solitude. It stormed the entire trip but was still one of the best experiences ever.

Lake Lansing North Trail

Good basic trail network on the northeast side of Lansing. The trail winds through hardwood forest and marshes. It's mostly shaded with little relief, so it's good for just about any ability or motivation level. The trail exhibit signs are past their prime. The five different trails are well-marked by color. There's a $3 per car entrance fee if you use the main entrance. There are picnic grounds and tables, grills, sports fields, shelters, and restrooms at the main trailhead.

I love this trail. We use it to practice on before our multiday backpacking excursions. The terrain offers hills aand distance choices that allow us to choose how hard we want to practice.
I also use it to just go for quiet walks out in the woods with my dogs. The 4 mile loop is perfect for a quick hike just to get out and enjoy the outdoors.
Be prepared though, this is not a flat leisurely trail. You should wear good supportive shoes for the terrain.

Decent climbs and a couple of trail options. A bit boring for 20+ miles, but the lake is refreshing in the summer.
