Polly Ann Trail

Big Let Down in Lapeer County

August, 2018 by gnorth.cody

Moved from Lake Orion to Imlay City and boy were we spoiled. We had the Paint Creek Trail and a portion of the Polly Ann Trail available to us in Lake Orion, both were very nice. In Imlay City, though? It's hardly a "bike path." The portion within the city is paved and nice, but beyond the city north or south is overgrown and impossible to bike. We have been quite disappointed with this trail since our move. I would love to be able to bike all the way to Lake Orion again and connect to the Paint Creek for Rochester. This trail needs some serious attention!

Border-to-Border Trail

Dexter-Clinton to Huron-Clinton Park Segment

July, 2018 by pwesterman_tl

Tried this on a new bike yesterday and it was DELIGHTFUL!! It was a wonderful trip through open meadows, wetlands and climax forest areas along the south bank of the Huron River (not always visible - but close based on chatter from people in rafts/canoes/etc.). There’s a small street connector thru Dexter but this is minimal - and Dexter is a wonderful town for a meal/rest/drink/chat.

Pavement is smooth as a baby’s butt and there are no challenging hills. It’s just a very pleasant, easy ride and I enjoyed myself very much!

Polly Ann Trail

Progress

July, 2018 by redeyeryder

At the moment (O7-2OI8) this trail officially goes from Orion Township to North Branch. The Lapeer county part is not all the way finished. Some of it is paved and some of it is gravel and some is balast and some is grass with a singletrack and some is just grass.

The Oakland county part is is great.

Like most rail trails and just trails in general - this trail is under construction and in development and has proposed plans for it.

These things take time and l myself wish all the proposed trails were completed but l know they take time.

If l win the lotto l will pay to pave lots of trails.

Clinton River Trail

I love this trail!

July, 2018 by jenniferruthruff69

I have been riding this trail for the past 5 years. I usually park at Adams Rd parking area right near the Mastodon site and travel up to Rochester and join onto The Paint Creek Trail. We always stop and have a meal or a drink in Downtown Rochester and there are MANY places to choose from. I am not a true cyclist—more of a bike enthusiast—so the stopping for a meal/beer makes the bike ride! The trail is well maintained through that area. We always see bunnies and deer as we ride. The whole atmosphere reminds me of being up north! We sometimes go the opposite way and ride into Auburn Hills. The path is not as maintained when we go that way—not sure why, but it is just bumpier. There area some places to eat/drink in Downtown Auburn Hills as well and a beautiful little park along the river. Ice cream shops too.

Macomb Orchard Trail

Best trail in Southeast Michigan

June, 2018 by tgprince

I have biked on most of the trails in southeast Michigan and I believe this is the best one. It has very smooth asphalt for 98% of the 23 mile stretch (there is an 1/2 mile section just east of Romeo that is rough). There are several parking spots along this trail and a couple restrooms too. Several stores along the trail have bike parking for their businesses. There is a spectacular scenic overlook of the Clinton River about 2 miles east of Romeo. The north/south section from Rochester to Romeo has the businesses. The east/west section from Romeo to Richmond is pleasant farmland.

Bay County Riverwalk/Railtrail System

Great ride

June, 2018 by mikebachman

Great ride. Mostly smooth, with a few areas that are bumpy (from age of the trail). Many cross streets. Could be marked better, but you can still see the arrows. We had a great time.

Bay County Riverwalk/Railtrail System

Riverwalk needs help

June, 2018 by brad_schwamberger

May be great for an off road bike but very rough for a road bike. In fact all three bikers I met on the trail had fat tire bikes. I got lost because the markings were bad. Signs would be better and better seen in the distance. I left from in front of the Water Plant. First off the trash can was full and spilling over and the bathroom was dirty, trashed and the toliet plugged.The trail was better there but I kept hitting tree branches hanging over the trail. I did do a short side ride down to the USS Edison and thank god there was a bathroom there!

I-275 Metro Trail

A tale of two trails

June, 2018 by tgprince

The section south of Edward Hines Drive is wide and smooth. I know much of this section was repaved with stimulus money 7-9 years ago. The section north of Edward Hines is in horrible shape. It is very rough. The stretch from 5 to 6 Mile Roads is especially bad. Some of crossings of major roads are difficult. It is a noisy ride, but the trail connects to several other trails.

Huron Valley Trail

Path deteriorating

June, 2018 by tgprince

This is a great connection from South Lyon to Kensington/Island Lake. However, I rode the path a couple weeks ago and was shocked at how bumpy it has become. It is definitely much worse than when I last rode it two years ago.

Island Lake Pathway

Quick and Easy, but Terrible Condition

June, 2018 by kbouche40

My wife and I went to Kensington today and we both have hybrid bikes. We were terrified that since the entire stretch of the Island Lake trail was extremely bumpy for a bike path, we’d destroy a few tires. Won’t be going there anytime soon, except for walks.

Cass City Walking Trail

Major let down

May, 2018 by rydog5550

The Cass city trail was a huge let down. Most of the trail consisted of walking behind 2 factories and the only scenic part of the trail was 100 ft bridge with a look out over the Cass river will not be walking this trail again

Lakelands Trail State Park

Very nice rural

April, 2018 by sarahibrandl

I can only give a review on the Stockbridge area of the trail. I found the area lovely. I however took the wrong bike for the gravel section. The horse tracks caused a very bumpy ride. Really though very well cared for and no deep ruts for spring and horses. I plan to go back with Mt Bike and ride. Hiking would be perfect in this part of the trail too.
