The Lower Rouge River Recreation Trail closely follows the river for 4 miles through the town of Canton on the western outskirts of Detroit. The compacted crushed stone pathway includes eight wooden pedestrian bridges over the river that provide lovely views. Most of the trail is heavily wooded.
On its eastern end, you can connect to the I-275 Metro Trail to continue your journey another 33 miles. On its western end, a sidewalk can take you north about a half-mile to Heritage Park, which offers restrooms, picnic areas, a library, museum, golf club, athletic fields and other recreational facilities.
