R & R in Bay City: The Riverwalk and Rail-Trail Tour Professional Review and Guide

"Bay City's Riverwalk and Rail-Trail highlight this ride. Starting on the riverwalk, the route runs along the bank of the Saginaw River, tours residential areas, an picks up the rail-trail, on the east side of town, before heading back to the river.

The riverwalk rail-trail will eventually be connected, forming a 9-mile long bike path circling the city, but until then, riders can enjoy a route encompassing the quiet, wide, tree-lined roads between the two. The boardwalk features markers giving the history of sawmills and the lumber trade in the area. Things to see: Saginaw River, Bay City Riverwalk and Rail-Trail, old homes in quiet residential area."

I found the sights and scenery along the Saginaw river and some of the old industrial areas very interesting. But, anyone who wants to maintain high mph and a steady cadence won't like this trail. There are several wooden plank bridges, lots of streets/intersections to cross and some areas might be congested on weekends/holidays. But I enjoyed the trail and would go again.
