About Us

The Fred Meijer Heartland Trail is a 42 mile, paved trail that connects the cities of Alma and Greenville in rural, central Michigan.  It is open to non-motorized use year round.  It was begun in 1994 and completed in 2015.  The Meijer Foundation has been essential in its development and support

Since 2013, the Mid West Michigan Trail Authority has also been essential in helping the FFMHT by distributing grant money from a Meijer Foundation program for Trail Maintenance.

Notices

Warner Road Resurfacing: 

The Gratiot County Road Commission will be resurfacing Warner Road in late April and early May. Due to the two inches of additional asphalt on Warner Road, the concrete approaches on both sides will be removed and replaced with new to allow a smooth transition. The existing concrete is scheduled to be removed on April 29 or 30. The new concrete will be poured on May 1, and the road will be resurfaced on May 6 to wrap everything up.

All of these dates are tentative and weather dependent. Signs and traffic cones will be in place to warn pedestrians and bike riders of the hazard.

During paving on May 6, Trail users will need to use caution and at some points will have to go around the construction equipment. There will be only a short timeframe where crossing is impossible.

Donate

Donations to the FFMHT are essential for the operation of the FMHT.  All donations are tax deductible, since we are a 501 (c) (3) organization. Donors can have their names listed on this website for donations given in addition to your membership.  Donor names are also included in our special edition fall newsletter.

Get Involved

The Fred Meijer Heartland Trail is maintained by volunteers who do most of the trimming, repairing and mowing required along the Trail.  The Friends of the Fred Meijer Heartland Trail has a Board of Directors who are also volunteers and new Board Members are needed.  The Trail operations need new, dedicated people who are willing to work to continue this tradition of excellence.
