The Island Lake Pathway runs east–west through the densely-wooded landscape of the Island Lake Recreation Area southeast of Brighton. Although relatively short, the paved trail may prove a challenge to some, as it courses through hilly terrain.
The Island Lake Recreation Area offers a shooting range, boating, swimming and cabins for rent. It is also adjacent to Kensington Metropark, allowing park visitors to take advantage of the many amenities there as well. In the north, the Island Lake Pathway continues into the popular park as the Kensington Metropark Trail, which encircles scenic Kent Lake. Alternatively, trail users can take the longer Huron Valley Trail east to Wixom or southeast to South Lyon.
Parking for the Island Lake Pathway is available in the Island Lake Recreation Area at several lots along Kent Lake Beach Road.
