Macomb Orchard Trail

Great Trail

May, 2020 by croggbuck

Love riding this trail! You can ride as little or as far as you want. Well maintained, scenic route!

Huron Valley Trail

West Leg

May, 2020 by lelandab

My first review only covered the north and south portions of the route. Yesterday, I rode the western portion. The turnoff follows the expressway through New Hudson. It isn't very scenic, wedged between the car dealerships and the expressway. After that, though, it takes a turn and heads uphill for a while. The climb is relatively steep as you head up what was once a garbage dump. There is still some smell of sewer gas. The route has intermittent areas with rough asphalt/gravel. Once you reach the top, it is a steady descent, eventually running along another road and back to the expressway where you can hook up with Kensignton.

West Bloomfield Trail

Scenic and varied

May, 2020 by lelandab

This one is really nice. Not fit for road bikes, but good for all others. Within a short distance, one can see hills and woods, wetlands and open fields. There are a couple of areas with offshoots that are solely for mountain bikes. The end at Haggerty had no opportunity to go further west last time I rode it.

Clinton River Trail

Many scenic stretches

May, 2020 by lelandab

This is a popular trail, starting from downtown Auburn Hills or closer to Adams at the Mammoth site beside the road. It is almost entirely gravel, so not a great choice for road bikes. However, other bikes can easily traverse the path. There are often pedestrians and all kinds of other forms of exercise going on, but getting through isn't hard. The road crossings are moderately busy, but do-able. The total change in height is about 600ft.

Macomb Orchard Trail

Well maintained but not much scenery

May, 2020 by lelandab

If you are looking for a ride that is flat, straight and in good condition, this is the one for you. The street crossings are a little hairy in places, but this is otherwise a great route for road bikes. It can get crowded with a mix of pedestrians and bicycles, but there is generally room to get through. My only qualm with it is that it runs straight as an arrow through most parts and is bordered mostly by open fields or small businesses. I've only gone as far as 29 Mile (entering from Yates Cider Mill), but I can't imagine it gets much more scenic as you go north.

Clinton River Spillway Bike Path

The end is worth the journey

May, 2020 by lelandab

We joined this trail a little short of the mid-point when we connected from the Metro Parkway Trail. To continue on the Metro Parkway after I-94, I think we should have gone to the left. However, the ride to the right took us through a tree-lined path at the river's edge. The end of it was a short hop across the road to see where the Clinton River meets Lake Saint Clair.

Metro Parkway Trail

Well maintained, but not much to look at

May, 2020 by lelandab

We started this ride at the Freedom Hill parking lot. The route starts right near the north part of the lot. The ride is straight along Metro Parkway, which means that there isn't much scenery. The pavement is well maintained with only minor bumps. The road crossings, especially the bridge, are slow and not much fun. The payoff comes at the end when the trail connects into the Clinton River Spillway Trail. To continue on the Metro Parkway after I-94, I think we should have gone to the left.

Huron Valley Trail

Straight and flat but bumpy

May, 2020 by lelandab

Rode from Lyon Oaks golf course lot. The beginning was bumpy and crossed several businesses' driveways with gravel. A left turn about 1/2 a mile north of Pontiac Trail put us onto a stretch with some nice trees lining the route. That was in the best shape of the ride. As we got past I-96, we kept to the left, taking the south part of the trail. The stretch from about 12 Mile to 10 Mile was the bumpiest with many seams in the asphalt. It was fine on a flat bar fitness bike, but my kid was jolted around a lot on his road bike. There are some pretty stretches that are forested and a couple that are wetlands. The stretch going towards Island Lake looks to run right along the expressway.

Rode this trail from South Lyon to (almost) Wixom round trip today. It is very bumping and in need of resurfacing.

Great views, well maintained sidewalk. Be aware that pedestrians and bikers share the sidewalk so don’t go too fast.
