The Bi-Path is an urban jewel built by the City of Alpena. In addition to some nice cityscapes, it features pleasing scenery along Lake Huron and the Thunder Bay River. Almost flat, it is all paved and suitable for all uses and is mostly dedicated. About 14 miles in length, it consists of one great loop and several spurs or connections that add potential distance and variety to the route.
