North Coast Inland Trail (Sandusky and Ottawa Counties)

Really great up until going on the streets

August, 2019 by daytoncapri

I started in Elmore and headed east towards Bellevue, but the on-road traffic conditions in Fremont were too much for me. I got to ride about 11 of the 28 miles.

Excellent, flat and hard-paved as a dedicated trail from Elmore to Fremont, pretty scenery on this very flat section of Ohio. Nice to see open farmland, and to cross under the Ohio Turnpike.

In Fremont the trail continues onto a light-traffic but 4-lane curbed street with no adjacent sidewalk. The curb means that I couldn't quickly get off the road itself, so I rode on the grass and through parking lots to stay away from the possibility of cars. I didn't see many bike signs, so I made a couple of wrong turns on quiet country roads (which was wishful thinking) but righted myself with google maps. The route continues on 4 lanes until turns right onto a 2-lane streett a narrow berm. During the day of my ride, there was heavy traiff, utility work and new building construction underway, with cones blocking the berm access, I had had enough by that point and turned around.

Matthaei Botanical Gardens Trail

Easy and Fun

August, 2019 by john.rivera_tl

Views were great and path was a moderate winding trail with slight uphill/downhill points. Few wooden bridges that could create traction issues, but to finish at the Botanical gardens on a shaded path along a quite road is the perfect way to start mornings!

Polly Ann Trail

halfway there to an excellent trail

August, 2019 by heather.macdonald93

Was stubborn the other weekend and told myself I’d do the complete length regardless of the comments here. Wish I’d saved myself the effort, plus not gotten tennis elbow, from almost reaching the end (short 8 miles). Finally gave up once I had to get off my bike three times in 10 minutes for hives trees that had fallen over the trail. Not recommended for any bike without suspension.

Wayne County Metroparks Trail

We rode from Huroc park in Flat Rock to Lower Huron Metropark and back. The scenery was beautiful and traffic was light (early Saturday morning). The Lower Huron Metropark had some bumps but nothing major. We highly recommend this trail.

Mike Levine Lakelands Trail State Park

Beautiful trail

August, 2019 by email30

My wife and I took the trail east from Stockbridge to Pinckney a few days ago. West of Pinckney, you definitely want a gravel bike or something with larger tires than a typical roadie as it's all hard packed limestone. I never ran into any horse obstacles other than the stray horse apple every once in a while. It sounds like they are working on updating the trail around the Stockbridge area and perhaps paving that as well? Personally, as a gravel biker I find this sad as I found the limestone portion to be very enjoyable. Clear and well kept.

It's been our favorite trail so far in Michigan. I'd highly recommend it. Just don't take road tires and expect any fun west of Pinckney.

Paint Creek Trail (MI)

Nice ride!

August, 2019 by frankpizzo

We started by parking at a park near Ludlow and went to Lake Orion- total round trip from there was roughly 18.5 miles. Not paved, crushed hard stone. Saw plenty of wildlife , including deer with fawns! Ride on the way to Lake Orion has a slight elevation most of the way, which made the ride back much faster. Bridge is still out but you can go around it by taking a couple side roads. Hope they fix that soon! We stopped in Lake Orion to enjoy a meal- lots of places to eat at!

Macomb Orchard Trail

Great trail

August, 2019 by sean.lauderdale

We road this trail on road bikes to avoid traffic. Was a great trail...wide open and good surfaces. Fellow trail users were courteous. Started from the Clinton River Trail junction and road out to 13.5 miles and back. Signage was generally pretty good at intersections but there were one or two crossings around mile 2 that were less clear resulting in some wrong turns.

Wabash Cannonball Trail

Macomb Orchard Trail

Nicest Trail I've ridden this year

July, 2019 by utahfoto

The trail is well maintained, just the right distance, mostly smooth bridge transitions, road intersections well marked. Pretty scenic, plenty of places to rest, buy refreshments and use restrooms. I'd like to ride this one again! Started in Romeo, rode to Richmond, back to Romeo then onto Utica before returning to Romeo.

Clinton River Park Trail

Nice trail

July, 2019 by allred.albert1

Just rode this trail today. It now connects north to another very nice trail through downtown Utica that extends a few miles up to Ryan Road in Shelby Township, I think it’s called River Bends.

The trail is very scenic, lots of woods and hills and nice views as it follows the river. There are many curves and side trails and signage is not great, so it seems like it would be easy to get lost if you’re not careful. There are lots of parks along the trail.

Detroit RiverWalk

Great place to ride, run, or walk

July, 2019 by allred.albert1

The River Walk is beautiful, and has been extended beyond what is currently described here, I believe. And as of my last ride down there, last month, more riverwalk was being completed — it goes east out almost all the way to the bridge to Belle Isle now. You can also go west past the old Joe Louis arena after a short stretch on roads or sidewalks, and the trail extends another half-mile or so in that direction. If you combine the very cool Dequindre Cut with the River Walk and the route around Belle Isle, it’s easy to get in a 20 mile bike ride without having to worry about cars or traffic almost at all.

I just hope they continue extending the River Walk, the Detroit River is beautiful and there’s plenty of space to keeping expanding. Eventually, I’d love to see it extend to Grosse Point, and down to the Ambassador Bridge.

Really nice trail!

July, 2019 by utahfoto

The trail is in great shape and clearly loved by the locals, many of whom were out riding mid-day. Very pretty, lots of ponds and wetlands. I rode a bit east after the trail connected to the Clinton River trail. On the western end I road towards Wixom on the open sections of the newly paved trail from Haggerty to Wixom Road on the old Coe Railway bed. West of Wixom you can jog north on Maple then south onto another trail and then on to New Hudson
