Its scenic 22 miles extends from Frankfort, through Elberta and Beulah to Thompsonville. The entire trail is excellent for bicycles and pedestrians. Part of the trail from Beulah to Thompsonville is open to snowmobiles from December through March.
The benevolent "Friends of the Betsie Valley Trail" is a non-profit corporation formed in 1993 "to advocate, promote and encourage the development and successful operation of a recreational trail on the former Ann Arbor Railroad corridor in Benzie County." It is supportive in the efforts of the Michigan DNR and Benzie County in the maintenance and enjoyment of the trail.
