This is about a 30 mile ride. About half is on a road with a good shoulder to ride on and the other half is paved bike path. I park in the parking lot by shopping mall and then ride south via the mail road. You will pick up a bike path in about a mile. You can follow the path to Marine Cityand then follow the road to the State Park. You can pick up the path again at the park and or continue along the water.
