ITC Corridor Trail (Canton)

ITC Trail - Nice, easy, pleasant ride

August, 2020 by slinger255

Rode this trail for the first time out and back from ITC Park yesterday evening. It’s an enjoyable, nicely paved trail except for the intersection at Garfield in which you need to travel the dirt road to the east several hundred feet to pick up the trail again. (This would be difficult to manage with a stroller or small children on bikes with training wheels.). It wasn’t terribly busy for a weekday evening, but I ran into several people who don’t know trail etiquette. (People walking toward me on the right side of the trail, bikers going WAY too fast not announcing themselves, dogs off the leash...the usual issues.) Parking was OK at the park, but could be an issue if and when all the soccer and baseball teams get more active again. It’s a great trail for anyone looking for a relaxing scenic outing.

Metro Parkway Trail

Bumpy, loud, loads of traffic crossings.

August, 2020 by andrewmshoe

Bumpy, loud, loads of traffic crossings. Do not go out of your way to ride this. Practically need a full suspension bike to not destroy your bike on the sidewalk slab drops and all the traffic crossings.

Milford Trail

Part Closed ¿¿

August, 2020 by mdietrich44

This trail had major potential, but was a big let down. We started from Kensington Metro Park and wanted to bike out to Milford to add on an additional few miles to our ride. About 1.5 miles out, or at Dawson Road, the trail was straight up closed. We had a few warning signs before, but wanted to get as much mileage as we could. Really sad during the peak of summer that it’s closed.

Kensington Metropark Trail

Very People-y

August, 2020 by mdietrich44

I love Kensington, except for the abundance of people. They have no idea the trail is used for anything other than their walk to the beach or short stroll taking up the entire width of the trail. Other than the people, the trail has beautiful views, lovely rolling hills, and tons of bathroom access. It is a steep $10 for daily entry which is a bummer.

Island Lake Pathway

Bumpy

August, 2020 by mdietrich44

The scenery from Kensington to Island Lake is stunning. However, there were so many large cracks across the pavement which created a very bumpy ride. On average, about every 10 feet there’s a bump. Tip: if you have the MI State Park pass, park at Island Lake to bike over to Kensington.

Wayne County Metroparks Trail

Polly Ann Trail

Dryden to Lakeville

July, 2020 by jbiggs13579

20 Miles on Polly Ann trail on Trek FX3 hybrid ....too bad Lapeer Cty cant maintain a trail like Oakland Cty....riding in Oakland Cty was like riding on the C&O canal trail....SMOOTH. 4 miles from Dryden to Bordman Rd was like riding on a washboard.....but good ride all the same. May try to get south of Oxford next time

Michigan Air Line Trail

Smooth as glass, good connector trail too!

July, 2020 by bjaflan

This trail is newly completed so the blacktop surface is pristine for wheels! It passes through developed areas and wetlands. There's no shade between Wixom Rd and Haggerty Rd, so go when it's cooler outside. The trail has an entrance to Gunnar Mettala park in Wixom and there are bathrooms there.

The trail crosses some roads and, where appropriate, has crossing signals. There's a bridge over M-5, but as of July 2020, Google Maps doesn't know about it, so it will reroute you on busy streets to get across M-5. Ignore the reroute; the trail is clear.

As the description states, the trail is a great connector between the Huron Valley Trail and the West Bloomfield Trail. Many people have eagerly awaited for years for that!

As of July 2020, there is an installation of the Detroit Institute of Art's "Inside Out", with 4 reproductions of prints found in the DIA displayed right on the path (they are spread out; you'll need wheels to see them all). I believe this will last during the summer months but not sure.

Polly Ann Trail

Update for 2020

July, 2020 by bjaflan

I see no one has reviewed in 2020, so here goes.

As others said, the roughly 4 mile section between the Oakland-Lapeer county line and Dryden is rough. I have a hybrid bike and I did not enjoy this part, although it would be good for hiking or horseback. I did not go farther north than Dryden.

The section in Oakland county has a good surface. From the Lapeer-Oakland Co. line heading south, it is crushed limestone in some areas, and paved in others. If you're reading this in July 2020, there is a tree across the path just north of Leonard that you cannot get around or under, you must carefully lift your bike over it. It's probably 3' or 3.5' high at its lowest point. If you're heading north and planning to turn around to go back south at the county line, you won't miss much if you turn around at the downed tree. Not sure how often they clear the trail.

I live in Hamburg, right off this trail. We've watched it develop over the last 20 years and it is such a gem! So many people still don't even know this is here. It gets maintained very consistently. (Even in wintet) We feel so lucky to be so close!
