Flat Rock Pathway Description

The Flat Rock Pathway is a paved asphalt path in the small, industrial community of Flat Rock, located on the banks of the Huron River not far from where it empties into Lake Erie. Part of the Downriver Linked Greenways, a trail system that stretches throughout the "Downriver" region of southeast Michigan, the Flat Rock Pathway helps connect the community with neighboring towns and recreation sites - a signed bike route in Flat Rock takes you to the Oakwoods Metropark to Flat Rock Trail, which leads into a series of parks along the river, and trails on the eastern end of the path allow you to continue your journey to the lake and beyond.

The off-road trail begins along the side of Gibraltar Road in Flat Rock; the trail quickly passes by the entrance to the city's sprawling Civic Center Park, which hosts an assortment of athletic fields, playgrounds, and other amenities. Continuing along the roadside, the trail enters more sparsely populated areas, with open fields to the north, before turning south into an industrial park at Gateway Boulevard. Making your way along the trail through the sea of parking lots, the trail enters into a utility corridor that parallels the nearby interstate - the hum of power lines and the sounds of traffic may not be the most pleasant accompaniment, but the wooded surroundings help make the trail feel a little more scenic. The pathway ends at Woodruff Road, where the East-West Connector Trail picks up; trail users can take this path into Rockwood or the Lake Erie Metropark, or any of the other numerous destinations along the route of this developing trail network.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available along the trail in Flat Rock at the civic center complex off of Gibraltar Road, between Evergreen Street and Aspen Boulevard. The complex is easily accessible from Interstate 75 - take exit 29 and head west on Gibraltar Road for just over a mile and you should see the park and city hall on your right.

Flat Rock Pathway Reviews

Nice trail but needs work

I have ridden this trail a couple of times a year for the past several years. It was a really good smooth trail but has received very little maintenance. The asphalt is becoming very rough because of tree roots and general wear. I ride a hybrid bike and it is getting to the condition that I will find other trails to ride until this is repaired. I am 70 years old and love biking but my body lets me know quickly when the path is bad.
