This trail is well-maintained with many playgrounds and parking lots throughout. Cyclists can use the shoulder/bike lane while pedestrians enjoy the sidewalk. In spring, some of the trail floods, but plenty of it remains open to enjoy, and flooded portions are blocked to cars.
If you’re interested in street art, check out this trail. The pieces painted on the old overpass foundations are varied and colorful. The trail is all paved with separate bike and pedestrian lanes. Benches are along the way every few quarter miles. In summer the shipping container bar opens with craft brews and treats. You may find the trail hot in summer because shade is only found beneath the overpasses (and at the bar), but in winter you may find this trail ideal because it’s protected from the wind. Favorite if inline skaters.
Enjoy an easy cruise along the Riverwalk. It’s all paved with many places to sit and admire the Detroit River and the views of Windsor. Every so often there are public restrooms and even ice cream in summer. The native plants and gardens along the way bring birds and butterflies.
I love it! We just discovered this trail a week ago ! my husband and I are really enjoying it! Going to take a trash bag to pick up some empty water bottles... was wondering if we could start a donation box for some trash cans and maybe a bench or two !
Great trail for Boy Scout
My wife and I have walked & biked this trail hundreds of times over the past 25 years. The asphalt trail is 6.2 miles around Stony Creek Lake and includes breathtaking views of the lake and nature. If you prefer to get off the asphalt, the trail connects to dozens of beautiful dirt trails through the woods, especially on the west side (“West Branch”). The best time to come is when it’s quiet & peaceful, ie, not on a major holiday.
My wife and I live in Flat Rock and ride this trail often. It is well maintained blacktop and a pleasant ride.
I have ridden this trail a couple of times a year for the past several years. It was a really good smooth trail but has received very little maintenance. The asphalt is becoming very rough because of tree roots and general wear. I ride a hybrid bike and it is getting to the condition that I will find other trails to ride until this is repaired. I am 70 years old and love biking but my body lets me know quickly when the path is bad.
One my favorite trails. Smooth limestone surface west of Pinckney. Pavement east of Pinckney to Hamburg. Information for this trail on this site is outdated. The trail continues south of Munith, and is in great condition.
This trail is now developed past Munith and crosses Kennedy Rd where I live and continues at least through to Hawkins Rd, where a new bridge has been built as well as a parking area. This section of trail was opened for a few days, and then closed again, and hasn't officially opened yet for some reason. My husband and I have biked on it and have seen other bikers use it.
This is a nice trail with many scenic ponds and wet lands. A number of rest benches offer a chance to pause and reflect. Little critters scampering around and out the way. Made me smile.
The day I traversed the trail on my bike there were a few 'sprinkly showers' around. But not enough for me to abort. They were rather warm and enjoyable, and besides I had rain gear, but didn't need it.
We rode the Hines Park Trail but not the Rouge River. It is a well marked trail which runs along a road with a wide shoulder, most of the serious riders were riding on the street. We rode the path going one way and switched to the street going back. We happened upon a car show that ran for about 7.5 of the 17.5 miles of the trail (Cruisin Hines) which was fun to see. The trail has some bumps and there are a couple of steep inclines regardless of whether you are on the road or the trail. A couple of very narrow sections. The scenery is very pretty, lots of lakes and ponds and rivers.
