Macomb Orchard Trail

Scenic Ride

October, 2021 by rethornton02

This is a Beautiful and Scenic Ride thru Northern Macomb County.

I-696 Trail

Not the best

October, 2021 by 5dtxdxrnyg

The lower end is filled with trash. Lots of highway noise. It’d be good for a quick jog or similar needs. Would not recommend for relaxation or family trail walking / riding.

Metro Parkway Trail

Horrible Condition

September, 2021 by djmbndyqpp

A very bumpy trail with many cracks! You can hurt yourself on this trail.

Dodge the piles

This is a great trail. My wife and I really enjoyed it minus the horse poop. It’s still a 5 in my book.

Polly Ann Trail

Very nice

September, 2021 by jackmallory

We rode from Oxford to Leonard, then back to Oxford. I prefer asphalt trails (I ride a hybrid bike), but this was very rideable with hardpacked crushed stone and was pretty flat. The first mile or so going out of town is next to a busy road, but once the trail turns more north and away from that road, it is a very pleasant, pretty trail. Lots of shade and out in the countryside. Not very busy either and in good shape. Not sure if it would be muddy in certain parts in the spring, but when we went it was fine. Highly recommend this trail, at least the part we explored.

Polly Ann Trail

Well Kept Trail with Multiple Personalities

September, 2021 by mtraver

As of September 2021 the trail is a mix of asphalt and crushed limestone that works its way through suburban lots, farm fields and local towns. The full trail is knit together with bits and pieces of trails in various stages of maturity. We parked at the Indianwood Rd Trailhead and rode around 3 miles south and 7 miles north. Here's what we found:

- Clarkston Rd to Joslyn Rd - a straight run along the old rail line with a crushed limestone surface
- Old Rail Bed to Joslyn/Heights intersection - this section is an old concrete pad sidewalk.
- Heights Rd to Joslyn Rd - a well kept asphalt path separate from the street that runs along the east side of Joslyn Road.
- Joslyn Rd to Indianwood Trailhead: a narrow paved track that runs through the woods along Indianwood Rd for about a quarter mile.
- Indianwood Rd to Drahner Rd - a level, peaceful run through the country on crushed limestone.
- Drahner Rd to Louck Street (in Oxford) - a long stretch of paved asphalt path that includes a dedicated bridge over Washington Street.
- Louck Street and beyond - crushed limestone and dirt track that runs through woods and lakeland. The path in this area occasionally suffers from wash-outs, so keep an eye out for loose gravel and sand.

Overall a very nice ride and a good location, but the experience was inconsistent.

Paint Creek Trail (MI)

Beautiful trail!

September, 2021 by mdjjrossi

Beautiful gravel trail with lots of tree cover. You’d never know how close you are to populated areas. If you’re looking to add miles, the trail connects to other trails at both ends. Close to the north end, just north of the Clarkston Rd/Kent Rd intersection, there’s a nice new bridge that will take you to a wide paved sidewalk type trail that runs next to Clarkston road for 3 or so miles until you reach the Polly Ann Trail. (You’re never on the shoulder of Clarkston Rd - it’s separated.) At the south end, the trail connects to the Rochester RiverwLk (bikes allowed) and then to the Clinton River Trail for a short distance and then the Macon’s Or hard trail

Bumps and cracks!

Great trail and you can continue riding across bridge to Belle Isle with bike lanes!

Metro Parkway Trail

Bumpy but a straight shot to St. Clair Metro Park

August, 2021 by rmdwzw4cwy

I wouldn’t recommend riding this on a road bike. Bumpy, chunks missing and there’s a part where it forks with no markers to show which direction you should go. If you’re near 16 mile road it’s a straight shot to St. Clair Metro Park though. There’s some pretty pieces to the ride but it’s not gonna be a smooth one. I’d rather ride parallel roads or sidewalks than this if on a road bike.
