The 17-mile Leelanau Trail provides a paved off-road connection between Traverse City and Suttons Bay. Running through the last of Leelanau County’s former railroad corridors, the Leelanau Trail features picturesque forests, farms, vineyards, lakes and ponds.
In the winter, the Leelanau Trail is groomed by TART Trails volunteers as conditions permit and includes conditions well-suited for classic and skate skiing, fatbiking and snowshoeing. The trail is groomed from the DeYoung Natural Area to the 4th Street trailhead.
Parking: There are three trailheads for parking along the trail at Cherry Bend Rd, Fouch Rd, and 4th St in Suttons Bay. There is also parking available at the Leelanau Studios parking lot, just 1/3 mile east of the Cherry Bend Rd trailhead and Keswick Methodist Church, on Center Hwy between Fort and Revold Rd, welcomes trail uses to use their lot.
