The Clinton River Trail is a recreational trail on 12 miles of abandoned rail line through the heart of Oakland County, including the cities of Sylvan Lake, Pontiac, Auburn Hills, Rochester Hills and Rochester. It connects with the existing West Bloomfield trail to the west and the Macomb Orchard Trail
to the east.
The trail roughly parallels, and frequently crosses, the Clinton River. While primarily located on an abandoned railroad grade, the path includes 4+-mile-long segment that circumnavigates a gap in the railroad corridor ownership. The surrounding landscape includes downtowns, industry, residential areas and parks.
