Fun nice trail lots of elevation gains
Awesome trail! First section has a great view of the lake with trails wide enough for multiple people to hike/bike along. Pretty easy elevation changes that get your heart pumping a bit. This is a great trail to get a few miles in when you don't have all day! I would definitely recommend it to beginners and experienced hikers alike.
Run the mile loop last winter while on business trip from Colorado. I was impressed with the view, challenge, and the friendly runners and walkers.
Have been riding the 6 mile bike path around Stoney for years. It's always a challenge with its inclines. Give you a great work out. Great scenery I usually end up biking into the beach areas and maybe a picnic area off path. Went this winter for a walk around. Such a beautiful metropark. Can not go there enough.
This was the trail that started it all for me! Running, rollerblading, mountain biking and you name it! It was beautiful place to launch a lifelong hobby
I spent YEARS training here when living in MI. I have many fond memories and had some of my best training here. There is enough space to easily get 20+ mile training runs done without too much redundancy.
Nice trail, not so easy to follow, but once found the path, a lot of fun! Not very difficult anyway.
I love the mountain bike/hiking trails at Stoney Creek Metro Park. It is a great way to see wildlife and get in shape. If you are lucky you will see an owl, which is a bonus. Just remember to walk facing the bikers and move over to give them room to pass you. Overall this is my favorite place to hike locally.
Overall great trail. Coaster area is a blast and can be challenging at times. Pines area has Avery good flow and can be fast.
Kayaking is what we like to do here. Smaller more maneuverable. Gets you into places you can't get with a canoe. Beautiful lake, you can swim in it without getting sick, unlike some metro parks. And they jabber nice easy hiking trails as well. Would be 5 stars if could take my dog anywhere beside Cpl small trails of paved paths.
