Time to head westward now, and lady luck shows me her face. When reaching the town of Clare I come across a fabulous rail trail. It goes by the name of the Pere Marquette State Trail. How wonderful for me, perfect tarmac, delightful nature, and traffic free wheeling. I follow the route to Reed city before turning south on the White Pine Trail. Now the tarmac gives way to grass and gravel, with a splash of sand to keep me on my toes.
