The bi-path is well cared for and a beautiful place to walk or ride bikes. The scenery along the river is unparalleled. Swans, ducks and geese abound. It is the perfect place to stay healthy and happy.

I have walked this path both day and night and felt completely safe every time. It's a great place to take a romantic stroll by the river or a family outing.

Outstanding trail. Very wide and well maintained. There weren't any holes, this is a great trail to go on if you're a runner.

Bike paths are not that well marked. We got lost a few times. Riding on the shoulder of a busy road is not safe for kids. All bike paths should have clear BIG signs and paved for safety and guidance. I was not impressed at all. It will be the last time I visit the area.

We rode about 10 miles around Alpena the last time, includingA stretch down the breaker wall with the blue handrails along the Alpena harbor. You can see a lot of historic old... More

I haven't been on the entire Bi-Path, but the portion we use regularly works out great! We use it to bike into the downtown area during big events like the 4th of July, Maritime Festival, and Brown Trout Festival when parking near the event is at a premium. We park at Duck Park/Island Park lot on the corner of US-23... More

Well maintained cycling and walking path around the city, through some very picturesque areas, it's a great way to see town and get a little exercise at the same time.
