rode this trail last summer from lake orion to Rochester. nice ride, moderate traffic at the time, only a few inconsiderate people. the trail follows the creek so it is an incline from Rochester to lake orion. trail ends connects to the Clinton river trail and leads through downtown Rochester. lunch at Rochester mills brewery was a nice break.

A bit boring for what I'm looking for, but well kept and links to other trail systems.

One of my favorites. Starting in downtown Rochester and riding out to Lake Orion, you'll get a nice scenic ride with plenty of shade and beautiful views of the river and woods. We always see deer and other wildlife when riding on the path. There is a service station at the cider mill if you get a flat and it's a great place for a pit stop for snacks and an indoor bathroom. Perfect fall ride with lunch or dinner in down town Rochester.
