The Betsie Valley Trail is 22 miles long and extends from Frankfort through Elberta and Beulah to Thompsonville in Benzie County Michigan.

The entire trail is excellent for bicycles and pedestrian use.

Pets are permitted on most parts of the Trail as long as they are on a leash and under control. Pets (except leader dogs) are not permitted on the portion of the Trail between Mollineaux Road and Beulah.
