Stony Creek Metropark Trail Reviews

Beautiful year-round

October 2019

My wife and I have walked & biked this trail hundreds of times over the past 25 years. The asphalt trail is 6.2 miles around Stony Creek Lake and includes breathtaking views of the lake and nature. If you prefer to get off the asphalt, the trail connects to dozens of beautiful dirt trails through the woods, especially on the west side (“West Branch”). The best time to come is when it’s quiet & peaceful, ie, not on a major holiday.

Up north feeling

February 2013

Stoney Creek's walking path—each time I have been there during the four seasons—has been in excellent shape. The rail around the lake keeps you from traffic areas for most part. Walking the six mile path you almost forget that you are still in southeast Michigan. In this way, it's far nicer than Kensington.
