“Awesome Biking Path in Escanaba”
The Escanaba Cross Country Pathway is located within the city limits, yet feels like it is set deep in the wilderness. The peaceful cedar ridges and hardwood hills block out the hustle of the city. The trailhead is located on North 30th Street just...more

I am an avid bicycle commuter living in Escanaba. I ride my bike in town year round. There is no bike path (at least one that meets the states criteria for a bike path) other than the one that goes through Ludington Park. On Danforth...More

The bike path is wonderful! It goes along the lake and is used by many people for biking and walking/jogging. It is very safe and the paved trail is smooth. The park system in Escanaba is fantastic...it goes nearly the full length of the city.

I bike but rarely on Escanaba's bike path, it just doesn't amount to much compared to other towns of similar size or even smaller. Part around Arnson Island is nice & pretty but short for anyone who likes to put some mileage on. Rest of...More

The Bike Path in Escanaba is very nice. It goes through Ludington Park, which is a beautiful 3/4 mile long park along Lake Superior. My only complaint is that it is a bit short, but it is very nice! Perfect for a little ride and...More

We were made to feel very welcome in Escanaba! They offer a free use of bike program. We "checked" out our bikes at the municipal marina. They ask for I.D. etc. and we were on our way. We rode 5 miles out of town to...More
