Southwest Greenway Description

Despite being less than a mile long, the Southwest Greenway provides important community connections to the riverfront and several city parks. Located in southwest Detroit, the greenway follows a former railroad corridor for just over half a mile. It is part of two trail networks: Detroit's Joe Louis Greenway and Michigan's Iron Belle.

Access its western end at 14th Street & Bagley, where there is a bikeshare station, picnic tables, a drinking fountain, and a very small green space.

Heading southeast towards the river, the rail-trail briefly parallels an active rail line and is protected by fencing. Mid-route access is available from the intersection of Vermont Street and Porter Street. Continuing southeast, the rail-trail passes under several busy boulevards and provides safer pedestrian access to the riverfront, where it connects to the Detroit RiverWalk at West Jefferson Avenue. 

The Southwest Greenway is paved, wide, and well-lit. There are bike racks, emergency call boxes, and trail signage along the route.
