Hart is proud to be known for the William Field Hart-Montague Trail State Park - the first paved rail-trail spanning 22 miles south to Montague, Michigan with picnic areas and scenic outlooks along the way. It is utilized year-round by outdoor and recreation enthusiasts.
The City of Hart marks the north end of the trail, providing easy access and plenty of amenities. The trail was once a Grand Rapids to Pentwater railroad line dating back to 1872.
