20.3 miles through Kent and Allegan counties, Buck Creek is a source of abundant plant wildlife, a vital habitat for many aquatic and semi-aquatic species, and integral for clean water. The Buck Creek Watershed is a tributary of the Grand River and it rises in northern Allegan County, flows through rural areas of Byron and Gaines Townships, and then through the cities of Kentwood and Wyoming as an urban stream to enter the Grand River in Grandville.
We invite you to walk or bike the Buck Creek Trail, fish this rare, urban trout stream, enjoy quiet refuge and inspiration along the creek’s edge, and join us in our efforts to keep Buck Creek clean and healthy for generations to come.
