This is a very pretty trail. A short, paved trail that follows the creek. Many benches along the way and there are restrooms at the dog park.
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 Information for this trail on this site is outdated.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.
Rode this week, Columbiaville to Millington. Great ride. Places to eat at both ends of the trail.
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.
We started at the Ann Arbor end of the trail in Bandemer Park. There is a lot of activity in this park-kayaking, canoeing, tubing so there are a lot of people walking on the trail which makes for slow riding. It's a very pretty and obviously well used park but bike riding is not one of it's highlights.
Once past that, the trail is not marked well, we missed several of the B to B sign posts (look on the posts when crossing the street). I'm not sure how many miles we did but I think we only managed to do 10 each way because of all the missteps and when we got to Eastern Michigan U. the trail just stopped. I'm guessing that's an on the road section but as we had no idea where we were going, we turned around. With all the other great continuous trails, we won't do this one again.
I have been enjoying this trail for years. I have biked many of the southeast Michigan trails and this one is the best. Particularly the eastern 4 miles are my favorite. From the trail's start on the east (at the end of the Macomb Orchard Trail), it goes downhill entering the Clinton River Valley to the beautiful Clinton riverfront as it passes by Bloomer Park fork, Downtown Rochester, Lake Norcentra Park at Rochester College and Veterans Park.
Coming downhill from the east, the trail starts to level out, you cross a bridge, a short distance later a fork would allow you to enter Bloomer Park with some of the better mountain bike trails found in the area. Bloomer Park was named for the work famous Bloomer Ski Jump that was a steel 112 foot jump built on the side of Newberry Hill. The cement foundations are still in the park today. The surrounding valley has miles of steep single track bike trails. The valley on the east side through Rochester offers stunning views of the river along the path as you pass through. Stop at Rochester Mills Brewery or one of the many great eatery's just off the trail at Downtown area. Continuing on the trail goes through heavily wooded areas as the next bridge crosses the Clinton River, you cannot miss Lake Norcentra which is a great stop. See the beautiful lake with the fountain and the artisan mural. Just a short walk from there is Veterans Park where a clean public restroom and water fountain are available.
The eastern 4 miles are my favorite, this trail has many parts that has more feel of a remote area in Northern Michigan, not anywhere near a populated area. Local residents have a real gem in their backyard.
Views were great and path was a moderate winding trail with slight uphill/downhill points. Few wooden bridges that could create traction issues, but to finish at the Botanical gardens on a shaded path along a quite road is the perfect way to start mornings!
