Beautiful and easy hike for all skill levels. It does cost money to drive in, but I think it's worth it. There are so many different trails to go on and it is all very well maintained. I would go back.

Beautiful, scenic, not too crowded. $5 for non-Novi residents.

Trail head in a park that charges $ unless you are a Novi resident. I didn't go in, but didn't see another way to leave this note.

Very peaceful

Does it cost anything to go on this trail? Or is it free?

Very nice trail! Good mix of easy and difficult and well marked!

Really pretty trails. Lots of options. Close to other activities. Easy enough to do with kids.

Beautiful all season trail for hiking. Bikes are plentiful, but are super polite in sharing this wooded trail. Love to hike here all seasons.

The Tree Farm Trail system is my favorite trail in the Detroit metro area. Relatively flat, but the 10 mile singletrack loop is jam packed with features (log piles, bridges, technical sections, "skinny" tree balance beams, rock gardens, pump track, craters, etc).
The singletrack loop intersects with an assortment of multi-use trails that are wider and great for family bike rides and hikes. The trails are well marked at each intersection and most of the difficult sections have a bi-pass option. Novi Lakeshore park is beautiful with picnic areas, playgrounds, bathrooms and even a beach on Walled Lake. It sits less than a mile north of Novi's huge shopping district and 12-Oaks Mall. You can easily bike/walk on sidewalks all the way into town for a bite to eat or go see a movie.

Started at Lakeshore Park which has a play structure, then when you hike/bike in a bit further it has another play structure. Kids loved that. Hiking was great. A lot of mountain bikers around who were very polite, they use separate trails so no issue with hiking where we wanted to go. Cold day so we didn't go as far as we had hoped, but will definitely come back. No fee on the day we came because the fee booth wasn't manned at the time.

I loved the hiking trails,

This was my first time riding on this trail. The trail is not super hard - I rate myself as a beginner to close to intermediate. I had no problem riding but there are a couple of really challenging spots on this trail. I actually flipped once. The trail markers are fine 90% of the time - just keep following the orange color arrows (markers). There is one split that is very confusing. By the 8th mile marker there is little area with a bunch of obstacles, little hills, etc. similar to the skate boarding pits - I saw a bunch of kids there having lots of fun. I really liked the trail because of its beauty , actually saw a couple of dears there.

I really enjoyed this park!! You can make it as difficult or as easy as you would like. Plus it has a "pump park" which was a lot of fun! I plan on making more trips to this park!!

Hiked on the bike trail and ask if the bikers were very courteous. Did the full 10 miles and really enjoyed the varied scenery and micro ecosystems.

Went on a Saturday and was told there was a bike race going on so can't ride. Fee for non-residents. Person at the entrance was super snobby and rude. No chance of me returning.

Great trail! First time hitting this trail and it was a fun moderate ride compared to other trails. Couple of different ramps and logs which are challenging but very doable. Will definitely go back soon.
