Stretching from the small riverside community of Rockwood to the East-West Connector Trail north of the city, the Rockwood Pathway provides a great way for cyclists and pedestrians to get around town and links the city with the Downriver Linked Greenways trail network, with trails spanning across the entire "Downriver" region of southeast Michigan.
The southern section of the trail in Rockwood follows the banks of the Huron River for a short trek along a tree-lined corridor in one of the city's open-space parks. The wider asphalt path is interrupted for a spell, but sidewalk allows you to continue along Fort Road to where the trail picks up again, continuing north along the side of the road through the center of the community. Along the trail, you'll come across the city's community center and Mercure Memorial Park, which features numerous athletic and recreational amenities, including a small loop trail around the park grounds. The trail ends at a junction with the East-West Connector Trail, enabling trail users to continue north into Flat Rock and further up the Huron River, or head east along trails that lead into the Lake Erie Metropark.
Parking is available at the Rockwood Community Center and Deland G. Mercure Memorial Park, located off of Fort Road just south of Russell Street. To reach the park from Interstate 75, take exit 27 for Rockwood and head southeast on Huron River Drive. Turn left onto Fort Road and proceed for about a mile; the park entrance will be on your right.
