This is an excellent training trail and as someone wrote, a hidden gem! I'm from Colorado and they might be longer with more elevation change out there but this trail has a lot of challenges. Mostly, I'll say that this trail is tight! There are tree pairs that I call Sting Ray Filters because they are too narrow for those old Sting Ray bikes. Also there are curves on grade that you have to stay on power or lose it. I would recommend beginners get comfortable with this trail and work on their technicals before moving on to bigger challenges like the Harbor up in U.P. et.al. And it's right here in the area.

unfortunately, I drove here after work to do some trail running to find that this is actually NOT a trail to run on this trail should be marked for biking alone!

Awesome trail with expert free ride park. Also has steep drops with roots and rocks everywhere. Has some birms and is not to hard.

Excellent trail! Not overly difficult, but technical and fun! Every climb is followed by a nice drop. Great views! Credit to all who have worked in it!

This is an all around great trail! Experienced riders can take out beginners and both can have a great time. All the obstacles have bypass lanes if you're not feeling up to the obstacles and the trail gets you away from the city while still being in the middle of the city. I've ridden this trail multiple times and love it and keep on going back. I highly recommend it.

Had a great time at Milford even though I blew out a rear with about a mile to go. Lots of easy climbs usually followed by a downhill where you can get some speed. Lots of bridges over ravines and wet areas. Obstacles were pretty easy. Some off camber which was real interesting with the fall leaves. The trial has nice flow with portions of tight turns and switchbacks followed by sections where the trail straightens out. Will definitely be back to this one!

First trail I have rode. I wasn't sure what to expect but I enjoyed it a lot. Lots of tight turns and loose gravel on some of the hills which made for interesting climbs. Watch out for the wildlife they tend not to be startled by bikers(even if you scream and yell at them).

Wow what doesn't this trail have. Don't be fooled by short distance. Don't take beginners out here. Must have bike handling skills. Many uphill switchbacks that you have to carry speed trough them. Love the fact that you bike near paved trail and all sorts of elevation changes. Follows very nicely with tight corners to keep you on your toes. A must ride.

Milford has two trails. One is paved and runs from Commerce Road to Kensington metro Park. The other is a fun, technical trail that twist around and over the paved trail. I really enjoy the tight turns and the many obstacles; Rock Gardens, Log Piles, Skinnies (fallen trees groomed for riding and more. Not for the beginner, but I recommend it for everyone else. The waterfall mentioned is a damn on the paved trail on the Huron River.

Great trail. Easy accessibility. Climbs are fairly easy, and the track flows nicely.

Hidden treasure! Almost 6 miles of tight & twisty singletrack tucked inside the city limits. Great fun if you're short on time!
