The Pere Marquette State Trail is a bicycle and multi-use trail in lower Michigan, running 55 miles (89 km) through Clare, Lake, and Osceola Counties.[1] Intersecting with the White Pine Trail in Reed City, the trail is paved in areas,[2] with a ballast or cinder surface elsewhere. The trail's western terminus is the Village of Baldwin with the City of Clare as its eastern terminus. From Baldwin east to The Pere Marquette State Trail is open to non-motorized uses. Except for a gap at its eastern end as the trail enters the City of Clare, it is developed on a former railroad bed. From the City of Clare southeast to Midland, the trail continues as the Pere Marquette Rail Trail.

The Pere Marquette State Trail should not be confused with the similarly named Pere Marquette Rail Trail.[3]
