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.

WINTER BARRIERS

The snowmobile barriers for the winter season went up by Nov. 15th.  We use the barriers to prevent snowmobile activity that damages the trail.  The trail will stay open year round as usual to all regular activity.  You can enjoy it in all seasons.

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.

Trail barriers are going up soon for the winter months. These barriers help to protect the Trail surface from damage by the metal studs on the snowmobile tracks.    Wear Hunter's orange clothing if possible--it's hunting season!
