Come Ride the Hart-Montague Trail From Rothbury

Hart-Montague Trail at RothburyTwenty-two miles of smooth new pavement for you ride; that's the William Field Memorial Hart-Montague Trail, now finished and ready for you and your family to enjoy.

The trail cuts through the center of the Village of Rothbury, providing strategic mid-point trail access. The trail was once a Grand Rapids to Pentwater railroad line dating back to 1872. From Rothbury you can head north on the trail toward Shelby and Hart, or south toward Montague, either direction making for a fun and memorable day's adventure.
