The Lakes Community Trail is a multi-use pathway in southwest Oakland County. The walking-and-biking path stretches four miles and links to parks within four adjacent communities; the City of Wixom, the City of Walled Lake, the Village of Wolverine Lake and Commerce Township. The trail offers a varied ride with both flat and hilly segments. The parks along the path also offer a range of experiences: residents can access nature in their own backyard, with opportunities to take it easy, or break a sweat at a football or baseball game. Other parks speak to local history - like Byers Homestead Park in Commerce, which boasts buildings preserved from the mid-19th century, when European settlers moved to the area.
The trail is maintained by all four jurisdictions, with each community managing the trail section that runs through it.
Parking and trail access is available at the Commerce Township Community Library (180 E Commerce St, Commerce Charter Twp, MI) as well as the other parks along the trail including:
See the trail map for more details and additional parking options.
Most of this trail is a part of park.It is comfortable for daily walk and ride.
With slight hills and variations of terrain this trail is interesting through Hickory Glen and runs along the roads at the on either end. It has enough to make loops so that you don’t feel like you just turn around and go back (as the trail map shows). Great for everyday trail use.
