Trail users at Stony Creek Metropark can enjoy bicycling or inline skating around Stony Creek Lake on the paved 6.2-mile hike/bike trail, or mountain biking or hiking on the 14 miles of hilly, heavily wooded dirt trails that traverse the southwest side of the park. The Michigan Mountain Bike Association helps keep this area groomed. Helmets required on mountain bike trails.
From State Route 53, take 26 Mile Road west 1.5 miles to the southern entrance for the Stony Creek Metropark. Ample parking can be found at several lots within the park.
I have a recumbent trike and this is one of my favorite trails to ride on. The path is all paved and well maintained so I never have no worry about going off road. I even ride in and going fishing in the lake at the park.
Another great paved trail to rollerblade. There are some definite hills. One in particular is pretty big but still fun. It does get semi crowded with people running and biking on it at the same time. But overall I’d recommend
I enjoyed the ride in the woods.
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.
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.
"Nice trails,good beaches but the bike trail is little bit to narrow.I still recommend to visit, it is wort the time. "
