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.

I saw 10 deer in various locations. One even crossed the trail just feet in front of me. The 20 mile ride was worth it for that alone!

Its a nice trail for walking, not really hiking.there are parts that you can hike a bit off the beaten path but have to watch out because it does cut through peoples back yards.. Its a very nice trail though I walk it a lot..
