At its southern end, the Spoonville Trail begins near the Grand River in western Michigan’s Robinson Township. Bicyclists and pedestrians can safely cross the river on a concrete-barrier-protected lane on the west side of the bridge. The first phase of the trail, which was completed in September 2016, travels under the bridge and heads over to 120th Avenue. From there, the trail parallels 120th Avenue north to Leonard Road in Nunica. The experience is a pleasant one as the trail transverses rural landscapes and small-town communities.
The next phase of the trail was completed in 2020 and has added 2 miles to the trail, connecting it to the North Bank Trail at 112th Avenue in Nunica and connecting the Grand River Explorers Trail. The new section will cross a tributary of Crockery Creek near the Crockery Creek Natural Area.
