Southern Links Trailway

beautiful gem in the woods

May, 2022 by drbryanborn

Well kept smooth asphalt rail trail connecting three rural towns. Restaurants at either end, parking and porta potties .. and not at all crowded! Now if it could just be close to home… magnificent trail.

West Bloomfield Trail

Nice ride

April, 2022 by clr7828

Started in Wixom riding East on Airline Trail (all asphalt) and continued on to West Bloomfield Trail. Packed gravel wasn't draining water well from overnight rain in several areas and gravel near St Marys school was very washboard. Hopefully they will grade trail before heavy summer riding starts. All in all it was a lovely ride. Saw deer, swans, and turkey along the ride.

Metro Parkway Trail

Terrible trail

April, 2022 by kahinton22

This trail is horrible. Even on a mountain bike you’ll be jostled about the whole way. Friends of mine have lost bike lights from hitting the bumps. It’s unclear to me who maintains this trail but they should be ashamed of themselves. One bad lawsuit from a 80-year old lady who breaks a hip and maybe they’ll finally redo the whole thing.

The trail is in very poor condition. Many bumps and large cracks in the pavement.

Hines Park Trail/Rouge River Gateway Greenway

A varry nice walk and lots of geochachs to discover. Bring bug spray and water, small day pack would be ideal.

Mike Levine Lakelands Trail State Park

Pinckney to Stockbridge

February, 2022 by gelaws68

I rode this section of the trail many times last summer. It is actually smoother than aged asphalt that can get a little bumpy. There are not too many people riding this section and that makes an enjoyable ride. I have a hybrid and this is perfect this trail. Looking forward to getting on it again in a few months.

Lakes Community Trail

Lakes Community Trail

January, 2022 by lyzard4182

With slight hills and variations of terrain this trail is interesting through Hickory Glen and runs along the roads at the on either end. It has enough to make loops so that you don’t feel like you just turn around and go back (as the trail map shows). Great for everyday trail use.

Wayne County Metroparks Trail

Beautiful Trails

November, 2021 by streak1

Lived in Flat Rock for four years.Ran these trails 4-5 days each week.Varied which Metro Park trail I ran each time.Bought the Metropark annual pass which is a great bargain.The two mile connecting trail from Flat Rock makes access easier.If you bike the entire trail you'll only cross two major roads and one active rail track.These trails are beautful,rarely very crowded,and well maintained.After a heavy snow,the trails are usually plowed within a few days.No longer live in the area but sure do miss running these trails.

Southern Links Trailway

Heaven

November, 2021 by mhemingway020

I have enjoyed this rail trail all summer. Being a walker, this trail breaks down to a lot of different experiences. My favorite is the 3 mile mark between sister lake and Hart lake, thanks to all the people I’ve met

Border-to-Border Trail

Good potential, just not there yet.

November, 2021 by pcampbell804

I drove half an hour to try out this trail, and ended up riding only 3 miles before turning back. Poorly marked trail and detours made it a chore to stay on course, then when I finally got to what looked like the most interesting section, there was a sign stating bicycles were not allowed. On the bright side, most of the people were friendly, and the students painting the underpass were so nice that I wanted to park my bike and help them paint!

PS: The parking lot at Huron Bridge Park is small, but if you cross the bridge into Bandemer Park, there is much more parking available.

Southern Links Trailway

Great trail with Lots of tree cover

November, 2021 by marshajeanh

Great ride on well maintained trail. Good fall color. Benches and picnic tables available.

Lower Rouge River Recreation Trail

decent

October, 2021 by sbschust

Decent trail, went in February 2021 and you could see and hear the city life during most of the trail but there were some scenic spots. Connecting trails and intersections were nicely marked. Dog friendly.
