Join Friends of GR Parks and GAZELLE SPORTS GRAND RAPIDS in our first virtual “Trek Park Trails”

Trek Park Trails is not a race, but self-led hike, walk or run to help you discover all that our park trails and paths have to offer, enjoy the fall colors, and connect to nature.

The City of Grand Rapids has 76 parks with so much to offer. Explore forest trails or paved paths – whatever suits your style! Register now!

Not sure where to find your adventure? Friends of Grand Rapids Parks and Gazelle Sports Grand Rapids will provide trail maps of different distances as the virtual event approaches.
