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.

Macomb Orchard Trail

Just a few too many road crossings from five stars

September, 2023 by robert.richter89

I rode the entirety of the Macomb Orchard Trail starting in Rochester and ending in Richmond. I rode on a very hot early September day and found that the trail was mostly shaded and provided good respite from the intense sun. The trail is in very good condition, is well marked and the towns along the trail provide options for food and refreshments.

There are many road crossings especially when starting in Rochester. It was fairly easy to find the trail but you will have to cross busy intersections which will force you to stop and wait for traffic signals. The road crossings do become less frequent halfway to Richmond but they are frequent enough to disrupt you from a nice, steady cadence.

Along with more frequent road crossings in the first miles from Rochester the scenery is mostly residential at first. Around mile 10 or 11 there is a welcome shift to more rural and wooded scenery. I would rate the ride from Romeo to Richmond a 5/5 with the ride from Rochester to Romeo a 3/5.

Paint Creek Trail (MI)

Started in Rochester due to slight incline to Lake Orion. Park in municipal lot as website says. We had to download the map to find exact start just over footbridge. Had lunch at Paint Creek Cider Mill. Trail very well maintained and shady.

Bridge to Bay Trail

Marine City to Blue Water Bridge round trip

August, 2023 by tjmodd

I biked from Marine City to Blue Water Bridge and back with a mountain bike (50 miles). I would never recommend using a rode bike on this path as it’s too bumpy. In my opinion the scenery seems mostly urban mixed with suburbs. I downloaded the map using the Rails to Trails app and for the most part the map allowed me to pick up the trail when there was a “break” between sections. This trail is not for leisure family fun. It runs along busy roads with many interaction crossings and not many places to stop for water. The Blue Water Bridge was very cool to see. And I stopped for lunch in Prot Huron. I’m glad for the experience but I won’t bike this again .

Macomb Orchard Trail

Excellent

July, 2023 by ynnvdgfwsb

Great trail for a long ride thru the woods. Plenty of shade with a little sun as well. Can’t wait until fall to see all the beautiful colors that it will bring to this ride.

Polly Ann Trail

It’s a favorite..but I’m biased

July, 2023 by vincentm90

Great ride by lakes and through the woods. A few hills and beautiful scenery. You might even see some horses out grazing.

Wadhams to Avoca Trail

The whole Trail

June, 2023 by trafficmonster48

Started at the Port Huron Koa which is along the eastern paved portion. I went west and rode all the way to Avoca. The paved portion is a breeze, the unpaved portion is actually really smooth. Loved the old train bridge. Turned around in Avoca and the rode past KOA to other end. 25 miles in all. Loved the peace and quiet. Highly recommend the ride. Watch out for turtles crossing the road!!

Macomb Orchard Trail

boring

May, 2023 by matthewgriffith9

I rate this trail with 3 stars because of the good asphalt surface and the connection to other trails. The majority of the trail is boring north of 29 Mile heading towards Richmond. Not many places to stop along the trail and enjoy the view, because there aren’t any, definitely needs improvement.

Clinton River Trail - Oakland County

rough ride

May, 2023 by matthewgriffith9

A very nice trail with enough greenery to feel secluded from urban sprawl. The majority of the trail through Rochester Hills is not “bike friendly”, recycled asphalt does not make for the best riding experience. The trail is manageable for a cyclist with experience riding in many different trail conditions, I would not recommend this trail for a novice cyclist.

Clinton River Spillway Bike Path

Newly resurfaced

May, 2023 by jocelynd102_tl

This is a very nice wide path that goes I think a little over 2 miles in one direction It has just been resurfaced and is very level. At the starting point near the parking lot is a bathroom and drinking fountains. They also have picnic tables and benches along the path. The only drawback is there’s a spot where at the freeway is very close to the trail and it’s kind of loud.

Clinton River Trail - Oakland County

Not a good trail at all

May, 2023 by rjdurkee

I started at the Opdyke Trail Head. Headed east and enjoyed the first mile of two through Auburn Hills which was newly paved. Outside of Auburn Hills the trail became crushed asphalt. I rode to Rochester Hills and turned around. I do not like riding on this crap. Also there were several very busy roads to cross.
Headed west from Opdyke. You are riding on sidewalk along busy roads. After about a mile the sidewalk deteriorates and becomes narrow. I turned around.
I never did see the Clinton River.
I will NOT ride this trail again.
Recommended for fat tire bikes and people not interested in a nice trail.

Macomb Orchard Trail

Awesome trail

October, 2022 by tim.patz

This is one fantastic trail, at least the part I was on, at this time of year (October).
I started at the Romeo Trailside park and headed left (North?)

The bridge going over the highway at the beginning has an incline up and down. Other than that, flat and level.
The trail is paved, marked every half mile and meanders through wooded and open areas.
A couple bridges over a few creeks is something I always enjoy.

It seems to be a safe trail, in a good area and there was a lot of bikers and several walkers as well.

The only negative is 3 cross-overs of rather busy roads. One of them had a good bit of cars that I had to wait for a couple minutes before I could get across. But don't let that deter you from enjoying this trai.

So as always, if in the area and want to get a couple miles in, head here.
You should your run, walk, bike.
