The Clinton River Spillway Trail passes through a mostly wooded corridor above and parallel to the spillway between Velger Boat Harbor on Lake St. Clair and Shady Side Park in Mt. Clemens. At the east end, the trail follows the north bank; at the west end, the south bank before crossing again at Shady Side Park. Watch your head where the trail goes under Interstate 94!
The spillway bike path links to the Metro Parkway trail, which goes to Metro Beach.
Parking and Trail Access
Parking is available at Shady Side Park in Mt. Clemens (Barbara St. and Shadyside Dr.) and at a small park at 26784 Ballard Street.
this is a great trail which is ride alot Weekly, But there is a part up the hill towards the lake that is really hard on Road bike. Roots have tore up the pavement pretty bad. But it offers one of the few hills in the area. So race on.
