Flint River Trail (MI)

Sunshine on the Flint River Trail

November, 2020 by madcow13

The trail north of Carpenter Rd is very nice and well maintained. It appears that this part of the trail is very popular as it goes through Stepping Stone Falls (which is very pretty). The trail south of Carpenter Rd is not very well maintained: broken pavement, lots of debris, many fallen limbs. All in all, had a great time. Beautiful 72 degree weather in November.

Kensington Metropark Trail

Beautiful and well maintained

November, 2020 by mdjjrossi

We rode this yesterday. It is just gorgeous and very well maintained. In regard to some of the recent reviews regarding crowds - although we saw a good number of people riding or walking, it was totally fine since we were there on a Thursday. Weekends are much busier. There are a lot of curves on the trail, so that's something to look out for if it's crowded and some are trying to pass when they shouldn't. Side note - on the south end of Kent Lake, there's a short connecter bike path that goes under I-96 to Island Lake. The Island Lake trails aren't nearly as well maintained and are very bumpy.

Macomb Orchard Trail

Excellent Ride!!

A beautiful ride on a beautiful fall day!

Milford Trail

UPDATE, this trail is great!

October, 2020 by jwih5ppwqd

Just rode this trail on 10/22/20 and it is all paved, hardly any bumps now. The only thing to watch out for are some bumps near the wooden bridges and traffic over the few road crossings- traffic does not stop.

Black Creek Nature Trail

I've drove past this trail several times and never even noticed ot! So when I saw it by accident I had to check it out! Nice walking trail. No complaints. Glad I found it!

Wadhams to Avoca Trail

Great Ride!

October, 2020 by kburk50

Nice fall ride, 10 miles paved with 15 miles of gravel. Bridge was nice, very scenic (and high up).

ITC Corridor Trail (Novi)

nice trail

October, 2020 by philsanter

Ran it yesterday for the first time, parked at the ITC park and ran up to Providence Hospital. FYI, the whole thing was open - just need to take the dirt road at 9 Mile and Garfield to catch the rest of the trail. Nice trail.

ITC Corridor Trail (Novi)

nice trail

October, 2020 by philsanter

Just wanted to give an update on the last review from July - the trail is open as of October 2020. You have to run on the dirt roads at 9 Mile and Garfield but no issues this morning.

Chevy Commons Trail

Its right in the heart of downtown Flint and its peaceful, open and quiet. The best part is that it connects to the Flint River Trail.

Clinton River Trail

Skip to Opdyke Rd and it’s a great ride.

September, 2020 by anngcools

We started at Sylvan Manor and rode the 4mile road detour. It was very rough sidewalks and busy road crossings. Best to start at Opdyke Rd and ride East from there. The road crossings, while many, had very courteous drivers you actually stopped for you! Beautiful scenery and lots of spots to get off the trail for a snack or lunch. We stopped at Rochester Mills Brewery and the food was pretty good. Cool vibes. Would go back. I rode a Salsa Cutthroat which was perfect for this ride. My riding buddy had Synapse with wider tires but still needed to walk some of the route through glass (on the rode detour).

West Bloomfield Trail

Very Enjoyable Ride

September, 2020 by saila22
