Clinton River Park Trail - Macomb County

Great Find!

May, 2024 by jarboe

Rode the trail on a Thursday afternoon in May 2024. This became an instant favorite. Tunnels take you under any traffic. Following the river, the trail is winding and has a few good hills. Mostly shaded. The trail is not well marked and there are a number of off shoots. We ended up taking most of the side trails and did 23 miles round trip.

Mike Levine Lakelands Trail State Park

Mike Levine Trail

December, 2023 by ferretnutz

Nice paved path from Pettysville Road and M 36 marshaling area through Pinckney. The path turns to fine crushed stone near Anderson and was quite a chore to ride on due to wet, low light areas which had not dried out. Not great in this area for bikes on a leisurely ride. Nice dry, sunny day of 50 degrees. The path will probably not dry out here all winter.

Great Trail

October, 2023 by rick888

This trail starts at Whitmore Lake and goes all the way to Jackson prison. The trail is mostly crushed limestone which is smooth and flat. Nice scenery the whole way. The trail goes very close to the prison. You can even see the inmates exercising in the yard. It was like a movie set.

Nicely maintained trail with benches along the way. Lots of geocaches along this trail too.

Bridge to Bay Trail

ROUGH

October, 2023 by mwskibike

Rode from Marine City High School, north on the inland route to Yankee Road, north of St. Clair and then back south thru St. Clair and on the section that runs close to the river. This trail needs work! It is rough - lots of root bumps, bump at every road crossing and the weeds along Recor Road and King Road south of St. Clair cover half the trail. In one spot on the King Road section, I had no choice but to let the weeds rub on my legs - they are that far over the trail. Won't be back here until improvements are made.

Saginaw Valley Rail Trail

September, 2023 by lauri.dailey

Whether you’re walking or biking, this trail is a smooth path, mostly paved, and filled with wildlife and gorgeous wildflowers, water, and benches for a rest or talk! The overpass over the highway, is a great option for a cycling challenge, on this mostly flat ride.

Bay-Zil Rail Trail

Did this trail for the first time today. Very nice, but short. We started from the parking lot of Ray's Bike Shop. Out to the end of the trail and back to Ray's was just under 13 miles.
