Explore nature at its finest with your kids at Clay Cliffs. Enjoy the award-winning Riverwalk with its planked walkway along the Muskegon River and providing access to all or take a shot at slaying Michigan’s Dragon Trail. Once completed, the Dragon will be a connecting 47-mile Mountain Biking trail that is sure to be an outdoor adventure destination. Sections of this trail are currently open for use.
Protect Michigan Trails by not using them when muddy. Riding or walking on a muddy trail destroys the surface. It leaves ruts/deep holes, uneven tire and footprints, contributes to erosion and creates a hard-to-fix trail surface. Hint: If you are leaving visible bicycle ruts, deep footprints or hoof tracks the trail is too muddy.
