At the east end, the Metro Parkway Trail connects to the Clinton River Spillway Bike Path
near I-94. In Metro Park you'll find scenic views of Lake St. Clair and additional trails along the lake.
Park on the eastern end at Metro Beach Park (at the end of Metropolitan Parkway). You can also access the trail from the Clinton River Spillway Bike Path near I-94 and Metropolitan Parkway and from wherever the trail crosses a road.
Its like being up north looking in to the woods and seeing the animals but it is in our back yard. Peaceful clean smelling and gorgeous in the morning
