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.

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.

Fred Meijer White Pine Trail State Park

Why the gap

August, 2019 by ljwerner

Rode from Reed City to Leroy. Nice trail except for the third of a mile south of Sylvan Rd. For some inexplicable reason this section is still unpaved and is loose gravel. Not only is it dangerous for road bikes the sharp stones caused my wife to get a flat tire. Tried to do a little research on why but came up empty. Would recommend walking this section for safety.

Bruno's Run Trail

Great trail - dirt and narrow at some points

August, 2019 by stevens64

Great trail with fantastic views of several lakes.

Saginaw County to Bay County Connector

Wonderful trail

August, 2019 by tcoatoam

The only negatives for this trail is that it’s a dead end and near the end there is slight degradation of the surface with plants coming though the asphalt, but it’s marked. Positives Very little traffic Wide enough to comfortably ride side by side Smooth trail with almost no bumps Incredible views of Saginaw River and adjacent marshes Lots of wildlife, have seen eagles, herons, coyote, muskrats, rabbits, deer, and more.

Fred Meijer Flat River Trail

Awesome and funny trail

August, 2019 by lmileo

A mix of river trail with city trail but the opportunity to pass through the Baldwin Lake is really awesome. My wife and I really enjoyed this trail.

Kal-Haven Trail Sesquicentennial State Park

Very beautiful

August, 2019 by tonja423

This is a very beautiful trail. Lots of shade and nature. We liked the crushed stone. It was less bumpy than some of the paved trails. We did 30 miles from Grand Junction to just past Kendall and back today. Bloomingdale has a nice little depot museum to stop and look through. Lots of history there. And Gobles has a some good food options. Really enjoyed it.

Kal-Haven Trail Sesquicentennial State Park

Nice but monotonous.

July, 2019 by anniejansen

We rode out 16 miles from South Haven at the beginning of the trail head. Although the trail was pretty, it was very monotonous. The total trip was 33 miles (we did not go all the way to Kalamazoo). I thought there would be towns that we could get off at and explore a bit, or grab a bite to eat or have coffee...but there was nothing. We should of investigated the trail further before beginning.

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.

Iron Ore Heritage Trail

Uphill climb

July, 2019 by chipper53

I rode the Iron Ore trail from downtown Marquette west on a rented hybrid bike. I was unprepared for the constant upward grade. Once the trail turned from paved to gravel, it got more challenging. After about an hour, covered with sweat, I was still short of Negaunee, so I turned back. I coasted every one of many miles back, never pedaling, and always with the brake ready. If you're looking for a workout, this trail is for you. It isn't what I wanted on a hot July day.

I did appreciate the historic signage along the trail. It seems that the grade was deliberate. Iron ore would be loaded, first on a plank road, then on rail cars, and easily transported downhill to the port. Then empty cars would go back uphill for another load. Makes sense!
