I utilize this path to get from my home in Canton to Hines Drive where I can ride on the street. It's a little loud at spots because it passes close to the expressway and the path isn't very smooth north of M-14, but it's a good path. Also, beware the crossing at Michigan Ave. It's particularly difficult (annoying).
This seems like a reasonably nice trail, but I ended up riding far less of it than I had originally planned. The foot traffic was so heavy, it lowered my typical average speed my about 2 mph. I felt like I couldn't get into any rhythm because I kept having to slow down. Also, the are long stretches of the trail that are in heavy shadows and the condition of the path is only fair, so it's hard to see potential danger spots. Probably fine for recreational rides on a mountain bike, but not for a training ride on a road bike... not that paths are the best places for any type of speed rides anyway.
I peddled the trail, Saturday the 12th, from Hamburg Township to Stockbridge and back. I chose this section of the trail because it offered a smooth asphalt surface as well as crushed lime stone and dirt. It offered a little bit of everything over this 20 mile section. There was a bike repair tool station as well as bathrooms along the way. A fun and scenic ride.
Did u know the highway divide yellow lines were conceived by The late Me Hines. We owe so much to his vision. As motorists, bicyclist and pedestrians all benefit from his wisdom. This is one of the most challenging ones around the tri-county trails. I am talking for myself ofcourse. The climb from 7 mile to Northville recreation parking lot is quite a burner. Do that and you are satisfied. As always, if you see me around say hi.
I found this handy connector trail while biking at Island Lake. It led to the back of the parking lot of the Green Oak Village shopping center. Follow around to the left, skirting the parking lot, past the Panera and you can find the Fieldcrest Trail which will take you to the residential areas along US-23 south to Silver Lake Road. If I lived in that area, this connector would be my main access to good biking. Although gravel, it was hard-packed and smoother than the actual paved trail at Island Lake. Slopes are gentle. This trail parallels the train tracks and the Island Lake side terminates a stone’s throw from the Dodge Picnic area in Island Lake.
This trail connects the residential area along Fieldcrest to the Green Oak Village Place shopping center. It parallels US-23, making it VERY noisy, and it’s not the prettiest although there are a few visual gems as you cross the bridge over the Huron River. The path is smooth and hills are small and gentle. Maps indicate that the north end terminates at what appears to be a carpool parking lot directly across the road from Panera. However, the path continues as it skirts around the edge of the shopping center parking lots, and although I could not find it marked on any maps, there is a very smooth, short gravel path providing direct access to the road at Island Lake State Park.
Great trail! Loved every mile of it from end to end!
Didn’t realize this was so close To the freeway.
This is a newly setup trail and is fun to ride. Quiet family friendly. One thing to keep in mind is that it crosses a lot of roads and that might slow down serious riders. Really good for a casual family ride.
The paved trail varies in terms of smoothness. I would definitely recommend starting after Groesbeck so you don’t have to cross the big bridge. Not much for scenic views. Mainly just the roadway. But if you head to Metro Beach you can rollerblade right in. That part is nice.
Another great paved trail to rollerblade. There are some definite hills. One in particular is pretty big but still fun. It does get semi crowded with people running and biking on it at the same time. But overall I’d recommend
This is a perfect paved path for rollerblading. Very smooth. I would say primarily tree covered. Not hilly at all. If there are inclines it’s very gradual and you can’t tell. Highly recommend this trail
