Chevy Commons Trail Description

Clocking in at just under a mile long, the Chevy Commons Trail provides a vital connection between the Genesee Valley Trail and the Flint River Trail, allowing trail users unfettered access to the area's multi-use trail system. The trail is located in the newly restored Chevy Commons park, a site that was previously known as Chevy in the Hole due to the acres of concrete and industrial wasteland that occupied the riverfront land. After a years-long revitalization effort, the park now boasts beautiful green space that brings in dog-walkers, cyclists, joggers, and a whole host of people from the community that previously could not use the site - and lest you think the area is erasing it's industrial past, the Genesee County Historical Society and the fascinating Factory One historical site are located right at the end of the trail, a must-visit for those interested in the development of the auto industry.

The trail itself boasts a connection to the area's industrial past, located on the former route of the Grand Trunk Western railroad, which serviced the nearby factories during Flint's industrial heyday. With a number of nearby attractions and destinations, like the Flint Children's Museum and an assortment of local parks and recreation sites, the Chevy Commons Trail is a great asset, whether you're exploring the history of the area or just out for a pleasant stroll.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available within the Chevy Commons park, with parking lots located off of Chevrolet Avenue and W Kearsley Street.
