This trail is beautiful from start to finish, well maintained, with many different views and settings. There is urban, country, woods, river, stunning residential, etc. Recommend beginning at Benjamin Davis
The asphalt is beat up from tree roots, lots of debris on the paths, low hanging tree limbs, messes from homeless people. Signs missing to tell you where to turn making it hard to follow trail.
Has lots of potential, and could be an excellent path if maintained.
It takes a few years to “season” a crushed stone trail and regrade it. So the new section from Hawkins Rd parking lot to Stockbridge is great now but will show some degradation with rains and use. Be patient as this happens as this section is very scenic and relaxing. You get some good looks at real working farms as you ride literally right through them
I have used this trail many times to get from Kensington Metropark to Downtown Milford by bike. It is very pretty and not as heavily traveled as the park itself. Watch the bumps as you reach the boardwalks, and use caution with the one road crossing over GM Road—drivers tend to speed. Downtown Milford has several restaurants for eating and there is a Dairy Queen open seasonally by the Milford Road entrance to Kensington. This is a handy trail for me to get downtown on days that car traffic is likely to be excessive or if there are road closures (4th of July parades, Milford Memories art fair, etc).
Due to its proximity to my home, I bike this trail twice a week on average. It is very popular especially on weekends and may have a lot of traffic on it. If you are trying to ride fast, most of the trail is paralleled by the road which has a speed limit of 25-35 mph for cars. There are some good hills. Over the years I’ve seen all kinds of wildlife, including Great Blue herons, sandhill cranes, foxes, mink, coyote, muskrats, and the elusive white deer. Use caution if you are not used to traveling long distances; many people walk for 4 miles until their feet hurt, only to discover that they are on the wrong side of the lake and have a 4-mile hike back to their car. There are bathrooms scattered throughout the park and two bike repair stations as well.
I used the west and northeast legs of this trail to bike from Island Lake to Wixom—something I never could have done on the road during rush hour. It served its purpose well. Were there bumps on the trail? Yes. Patches of gravel? A couple. Still, not bad at all for a trail that parallels I-96 between a landfill and a car dealership. If you are looking for a scenic Sunday loop to do with the kids, go to Kensington. If you are looking for an environmentally friendly route out of Milford, this is the ride for you. Use extreme caution crossing Milford Road...drivers turning right from the off-ramp are looking the opposite way.
The trail has many, many roots creating bumps in the asphalt. Additionally, especially on the western leg there are a lot of dips and gaps in the paving. Also while there are a number of trail maps along the way, the ones I looked at didn't have a "You are here" marker. Had I known about its poor condition, I wouldn't have driven out 2 hours to ride this trail.
Where do I start, a decade of neglect. trail improvements that consist of some cold patch and highway barrels filling holes that would swallow a stroller. The trail now looks like the military carpet bombed it as they would an enemy runway. Now at least they spray painted the big holes ahead to warn the crazies who try to rollerblade it. ONLY RIDE IT WITH A PLUS TIRE SIZED BIKE. Any one with any hint of arthritis should stay away. It's a shame they promote it as a jewel and treat it like a piece of coal.
Rode this on a beautiful Sunday. Awesome trail if you’re looking for a leisurely ride. On a hot day this is a perfect trail -the tree canopy keeps the sun at bay. The trail is well maintained-bumps are not an issue. I would suggest parking in Adrian instead of Tecumseh. The parking area in Adrian has a covered pavilion, drinking fountain and ample parking.
Short connecting trail between Valhalla trail and the Lansing River trail. Good quality road, a wooden bridge to go under the highway, and several sharper turns. It’s hard to determine where you turn to continue on the Lansing River Trail from the Sycamore trail (pro tip: cross the street to start the Lansing river trail in Maguire park).
Short, paved trail through tall trees and past a cemetery. Connects to the Sycamore trail, which then connects to the Lansing River trail.
I was delighted to discover that this trail is very well maintained, wide, paved, and tree lined. I took my road bike out on it this morning at 9:00am and there were very few people on it even though the weather was perfect. I was able to ride as fast as I wanted on this flat road. I felt very safe as a woman riding alone. Another bonus is that it connects to 3.5 miles of trail on the Jackson end - Martin Luther King Equity Trail. I was able to get in a 26 mile ride.
