A Capital Ride on the Lansing River Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Incredible. Fantastic. Not enough can be said about what the people of Lansing, Michigan's state capital, have done in creating the river trail. They reclaimed a stretch of land along the east side of the Grand River (the northern two-thirds of the trail) and the Red Cedar River (the southern third) and transformed it into a quiet oasis in the middle of the noisy city.
Varying between section of wide wood planks and smooth asphalt, the tree-lined river trail is dotted with scenic overlooks, historic landmarks, and other points of interest. You'll share the trail with swooping swallows and frolicking squirrels. Things to see: Grand and Red Cedar Rivers, Potter Park/Zoo, Capitol Building, Turner/Dodge House, Brenke Fish Ladder."
