Stony Creek Metropark Trail Reviews

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. "
