The Kensington Metropark Trail forms a paved loop around Kent Lake in western Oakland County. The scenic area, which features 4,481 acres of hilly terrain around the large lake, is one of the most popular parks in Michigan, and the trail accommodates inline skaters, runners, walkers and cyclists.
Kensington Metropark also offers a number of equestrian and hiking trails that branch off from the main paved loop. Due to its scenery and recreational amenities, the area is a destination for many users of the three other paved trails that feed into the park. At the south end, the Huron Valley Trail arrives from South Lyon and Wixom, while the Island Lake Pathway rolls in from the adjacent Island Lake Recreation Area. In the north, the Milford Trail transports recreationists from the village of the same name.
Parking for the Kensington Metropark Trail is available at several locations within the park. Access the Kensington Metropark via the Kent Lake Road exit on Interstate 96.
