Mike Levine Lakelands Trail State Park

Picturesque views

June, 2020 by lelandab

For all of the lakes in SE Michigan, there aren't many trails that actually go near them. This one runs through wetlands and across several creeks and rivers plus a stretch along Zukey Lake. The pavement is in good shape with only a few bumps. There are nice touches like a mirror near a sharp turn in the path. The crowds were minimal, even on a nice day. Rode from the parking lot in Hamburg to the zero mile marker in Pinkney.

Huron Valley Trail

West Leg

May, 2020 by lelandab

My first review only covered the north and south portions of the route. Yesterday, I rode the western portion. The turnoff follows the expressway through New Hudson. It isn't very scenic, wedged between the car dealerships and the expressway. After that, though, it takes a turn and heads uphill for a while. The climb is relatively steep as you head up what was once a garbage dump. There is still some smell of sewer gas. The route has intermittent areas with rough asphalt/gravel. Once you reach the top, it is a steady descent, eventually running along another road and back to the expressway where you can hook up with Kensignton.

Baw Beese Trail

Hit & Miss

May, 2020 by kristin.creager

Rode from the Jerry Russel Trail through the Hill-Jo Trail to the end of the Baw Beese. The Jerry Russell Trail is in Jonesville and features cute bird houses. The Hill-Jo trail runs along M99 and is junk! We ended up riding on the road next to the trail because it’s so poorly paved. The Baw Beese Trail is by far the nicest of this regional trai@z I suggest parking south at the park and riding north.

Towpath Trail

Beautiful River Ride

May, 2020 by glenn luther

Crushed gravel with plenty of parking and bathrooms at each end of the trail. Certainly one of the best trails I’ve ever been on in the little town of Grand Rapids across the river is great to stop at to get something to eat.

Huron Valley Trail

Straight and flat but bumpy

May, 2020 by lelandab

Rode from Lyon Oaks golf course lot. The beginning was bumpy and crossed several businesses' driveways with gravel. A left turn about 1/2 a mile north of Pontiac Trail put us onto a stretch with some nice trees lining the route. That was in the best shape of the ride. As we got past I-96, we kept to the left, taking the south part of the trail. The stretch from about 12 Mile to 10 Mile was the bumpiest with many seams in the asphalt. It was fine on a flat bar fitness bike, but my kid was jolted around a lot on his road bike. There are some pretty stretches that are forested and a couple that are wetlands. The stretch going towards Island Lake looks to run right along the expressway.

University/Parks Trail

fabulously maintained trail

May, 2020 by abbiriechman

Love this trail! They clear snow off quickly and there is hardly ever any type of debris on the trail. The ability to ride from the University of Toledo to Wildwood Metropark is awesome!

Well-paved walk through the neighborhood

April, 2020 by butlerel37

Beautiful walk through the Grosse Ile Twp. neighborhood. Well-paved walkway with room for people to pass and comfortable benches on which to rest. Sunny with rarely any shade, so prepare with a hat or sunblock. Quiet wooded trails branching off but a bit flooded in spring.

Huron Valley Trail

Could be so much better!

April, 2020 by james p

I have ridden this trail many times over the years using different bikes, and the experience has been the same, not good! I will say that the entire trail isn't terrible, but the section from 11 mile to the I-96 underpass is really, really rough. My road bike with it's skinny tires did not go well so I tried my gravel bike. It has wider tires so I thought that might be better. It was, for most of the trail, but again that section was terrible. I even stopped to let out some air in (my tires) an effort to smooth out the ride. This trail could and should be paid more attention to as it was a great connector to Island Lake state park, Kensington metro park and now the new Airline trail.
