Mike Levine Lakelands Trail State Park

The longest Connected Trail I've ridden in Michigan

July, 2024 by joelbradley93

The longest single connected trail I've ridden in Michigan so far. If you ride it all the way from Jackson to Brighton it's about 40 miles, but there's plenty of places to stop by in-between that show up about every 6 miles. Gregory is about halfway through and offers some good food options for anyone looking to make the full trek.

The trail from Hamburg MI going into Brighton is completely paved and beautiful. Everything from Hamburg going into Jackson is unpaved crushed limestone, and while there's beautiful wildlife around every corner the path can wear you out do the crushed limestone path. Still gives you a beautiful look at different Michigan biomes along the way and is in the middle of nature and away from the busy cityscape for most of the ride.

Paint Creek Trail (MI)

I live in Lake Orion and ride this trail often. It is well maintained and very scenic.It does get a little crowded on the weekend. La pumas is a get stop to power for the ride back to Lake Orion.

Kensington Metropark Trail

Wonderful trail/lots of wildlife

July, 2024 by rsyj72q7kt

Went here with the family. A few small challenging grades. There are some pretty views of the lake and a lot of shade. We saw deer, sandhill cranes, rabbits, swans, wild turkeys and a pilliated woodpecker.

Dr. Richard D. Ruppert Rotary Trail

International park Trail, Toledo, Ohio

June, 2024 by dardiz75

Not a real good pick. Very rundown, overgrown plants, Graffiti. We went at dusk on a Friday night and the parking lot by the bay had a lot of people and unsafe looking. Would not recommend.

Macomb Orchard Trail

awesome

June, 2024 by ielpmike

This is a beautiful trail. I guess my only complaint would be that it’s a little bit boring. if you go from Romeo to Richmond, it’s pretty much wide-open with very few crossings and not many people. Many great places to stop along the way, including apple orchards, restaurants, rest areas, etc. One of my favorite trails!

Clinton River Park Trail - Macomb County

neglected

June, 2024 by ielpmike

I just rode this on June 18, 2024 and there were a lot of tree limbs and growing over the trail. The trail was covered in a lot of debris. Looks like it was once a beautiful trail, but not looking so good these days. Lots of curves on this trail, which makes it more interesting than the other trails in the area.

Mike Levine Lakelands Trail State Park

great ride

June, 2024 by mhogan3656

I rode this trail from Pinkney to Stockbridge and back. It was a pleasant ride with varying scenery-sometimes open fields and sometimes heavily wooded. Another thing I liked about this trail is that is not endlessly flat. Instead there are some easy hills and downhill
