West Bloomfield Trail

Scenic ride past many lakes

March, 2023 by bklemz_tl

This is one of the original rail trails in Michigan and provides a valuable link in the growing network of trails across metro Detroit. Very scenic, frequently riding past or across many lakes and wildlife viewing is easy along the trail. The trail seamlessly connects to a larger network of trails on either end, allowing for days worth of riding if desired. The trail is always popular and well used.

The biggest complaint is the crushed gravel surface, which while perfectly easy to ride in dry weather can become a muddy mess in the spring and after heavy rain. Unfortunately, too many people attempt to ride the trail while the surface is soft, leaving behind permanent ruts that must be navigated throughout the year. Like all gravel trails, expect your drivetrain to need a good cleaning once your ride is done.

Michigan Air Line Trail

Great trail!

March, 2023 by bklemz_tl

The Air Line trail has quickly become one of my favorite regular rides. The surface is nearly new and very smooth. The entire length of trail is surprisingly scenic considering it navigates a suburban area. The road crossings are well marked with safety lights available. This is a welcome and valuable addition to the growing network of trails in the Detroit metro area.

Even though the Air Line itself is fairly short, it seamlessly connects to a much larger network at both ends, providing access to days of riding if desired.

Island Lake Pathway

Pretty ride through State Park

March, 2023 by bklemz_tl

Very scenic ride and part of the larger Great Lake to Lake trail across Michigan. Many hills that provide a solid workout. Go slow and be cautious of pedestrians and kids near the beaches and picnic areas.

The paved surface has many bumps and could be improved, but not an issue navigating on my hybrid bike tires. I've ridden much worse.

About two-thirds through the park, the dedicated bike trail ends, but easily connects to the park road. There is not much traffic at this end of the park, but use caution when navigating around the hills and curves.


Huron Valley Trail

Important connector

March, 2023 by bklemz_tl

This trail is a vital connector between Island Lake State Park & Kensington to South Lyon and the Airline Trail in Wixom and beyond. It is part of the growing Lake to Lake Trail across Michigan.

Despite its utilitarian function, it has some nice features in its own right. The trail was resurfaced in 2022 and is a pleasure to ride. The portions between Pontiac Trail and Wixom, and I-96 to South Lyon are scenic and fun to ride. Wildlife is common in these stretches.

Some of the road crossings are busy and dangerous and caution must be taken. These sections would not be advisable for kids. A portion of the trail climbs the former New Hudson landfill, which makes for a great workout and builds those climbing muscles!

Kensington Metropark Trail

Scenic park loop

March, 2023 by bklemz_tl

I ride this loop trail nearly every week during the warm months. Always plenty to see no matter the season. Wildlife spotting is common throughout, including deer, turkey, cranes, waterfowl and the nesting osprey. Perfect combination of hills and distance to make a good training workout.

Easy connections at both ends to Milford or to Island Lake State Park (part of the Lake to Lake Trail)

Michigan Air Line Trail

Great walking and biking trail

February, 2023 by fsxcvyjvdh

Well paved, plenty of space on and plenty of branch off spots on this trail.

East-West Connector Trail

Connector Trail

December, 2022 by chaspenny

I use this trail often. It connects the Flat Rock pathway to Erie Metro Park. Asphalt and smooth ¿

ITC Corridor Trail (Novi)

Enjoyable Ride

October, 2022 by 829nz7xcv2

Recently rode this path for the first time. We enjoyed a nice quiet ride. Not much traffic noise and only had a few pedestrians. The north end up takes you up to Beck Rd. and Grandriver. It appears there will be more paved pathway soon.

Lower Rouge River Recreation Trail

Couldn't enjoy

I-275 Metro Trail

Love the trail but the trail is absolutely beat up. It's in pretty bad shape. I rode 6 miles of broken asphalt and bumps that could've ended up in disaster. Please fix!!!

Macomb Orchard Trail

Awesome trail

October, 2022 by tim.patz

This is one fantastic trail, at least the part I was on, at this time of year (October).
I started at the Romeo Trailside park and headed left (North?)

The bridge going over the highway at the beginning has an incline up and down. Other than that, flat and level.
The trail is paved, marked every half mile and meanders through wooded and open areas.
A couple bridges over a few creeks is something I always enjoy.

It seems to be a safe trail, in a good area and there was a lot of bikers and several walkers as well.

The only negative is 3 cross-overs of rather busy roads. One of them had a good bit of cars that I had to wait for a couple minutes before I could get across. But don't let that deter you from enjoying this trai.

So as always, if in the area and want to get a couple miles in, head here.
You should your run, walk, bike.

Polly Ann Trail

great trail

October, 2022 by yoopersteve89

I started in Imlay City and rode my gravel bike to where the trail ends on Joslyn RD, then rode back to Imlay City. 55 miles round trip Imlay City to Dryden This ride is tough, but doable. It’s grass with somewhat of a singletrack being formed from riding. I rode early October so the grass was short, but I could see it being an issue early season. Just before Leonard is the county shift, and there’s a noticeable differences between the two counties. Dryden to Leonard (only place with water fountain) Singletrack with gradual elevation and it’s a fairly easy ride. The trail will get nicer as you get closer to Leonard. Leonard to the end of the trail Wide gravel path with periods of pavement in the cities. Easy ride
