A beautiful trail - fantastic autumn colors. I love most of this trail (some of it along East Grand River Rd. isn't that awesome) - one of the prettiest hiking trails in SE Michigan. There are many bikes, I think 7 passed me. All but one were very polite and gave me plenty of warning that they were approaching. A couple don't miss spots: near mile 1, take the dirt path that runs closer to the river, and, after crossing the Huron the 2nd time and turning away from Kensington Rd, take the short side path into the pine grove, great place to take a break and have a snack (both are marked on the track I uploaded). The woods are pretty and river views are wonderful.
