We rode this yesterday. It is just gorgeous and very well maintained. In regard to some of the recent reviews regarding crowds - although we saw a good number of people riding or walking, it was totally fine since we were there on a Thursday. Weekends are much busier. There are a lot of curves on the trail, so that's something to look out for if it's crowded and some are trying to pass when they shouldn't. Side note - on the south end of Kent Lake, there's a short connecter bike path that goes under I-96 to Island Lake. The Island Lake trails aren't nearly as well maintained and are very bumpy.
A beautiful ride on a beautiful fall day!
Just rode this trail on 10/22/20 and it is all paved, hardly any bumps now. The only thing to watch out for are some bumps near the wooden bridges and traffic over the few road crossings- traffic does not stop.
Nice fall ride, 10 miles paved with 15 miles of gravel. Bridge was nice, very scenic (and high up).
Ran it yesterday for the first time, parked at the ITC park and ran up to Providence Hospital. FYI, the whole thing was open - just need to take the dirt road at 9 Mile and Garfield to catch the rest of the trail. Nice trail.
Just wanted to give an update on the last review from July - the trail is open as of October 2020. You have to run on the dirt roads at 9 Mile and Garfield but no issues this morning.
We started at Sylvan Manor and rode the 4mile road detour. It was very rough sidewalks and busy road crossings. Best to start at Opdyke Rd and ride East from there. The road crossings, while many, had very courteous drivers you actually stopped for you! Beautiful scenery and lots of spots to get off the trail for a snack or lunch. We stopped at Rochester Mills Brewery and the food was pretty good. Cool vibes. Would go back. I rode a Salsa Cutthroat which was perfect for this ride. My riding buddy had Synapse with wider tires but still needed to walk some of the route through glass (on the rode detour).
Trail In great shape! Busy but enough room for all!! Scenery is beautiful!!
1) The overpass above the railway line south of Michigan Ave has three spots where the concrete is dangerously unlevel. Beware road bike riders. In the same stretch there are a few areas of collected sand; sand caution. 2) The asphalt path going through the underpass at the rail line near Hannah has dramatic buckling and sinking. It is always narrow and sandy (from unavoidable run off). This feels like mountain biking. Road bikers be cautious. 3) South of Huron the path becomes a jungle; the asphalt is laced with significant mounds of grass. The area is nearly impassable on a road bike without gravel or “knobby” tires. I could not complete the connection to the end, I was forced to turn back. Otherwise, the trail is pretty enjoyable.
New trail makes for a smooth ride. Mixed scenery amongst industrial areas. Connects between West Bloomfield trail and Huron Valley.
Trail is nice and smooth. Nicely maintained. Rode from Romeo to Richmond. One of my favorite rides
The surface is flat and smooth. Slowdown at the street intersections due to the ongoing traffic. If you’re looking for a scenic route this one is not for you.
