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.



Repair work on the burned bridge near Waterworks Park in Greenville will be beginning this spring.

  Many thanks to LS Engineering for their help on this project!


The resealing at Wyman Rd to Briggs Rd is complete!


However, due to the rain, Briggs Rd to Epley Rd and Lake Rd to Miller Rd will be completed on Monday, July 17.  The trail will be CLOSED July 17-19 in those sections so that the surface can cure. 


Thanks for your understanding!


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.
