Really cool trail! Lots of good scenery, and a brewery waiting at the other end for ya! Trail was super icy, but crampons save the day. Will definitely go back for a summer hike, this way we won’t have to walk the road back due to the lack of daylight. Definitely moderate.

Love running here. Really enjoy paint creek that runs along the trail.

Nice trail system with three loops.

I wonder why this whole trail is not shown . I’ve hiked a portion of it around the north branch of the AuSable river. It’s well marked . There are some areas that could use some clearing but it’s a real nice walk with a mixed forest .

It's very pretty and very well taken care of. Nice and challenging enough and usually not to crazy busy on bikers and other hikers.

easy hiking trail. tunnel effect on part of the trail. pretty much follows an old set of train tracks that have been removed.

good variety of landscape for a michigan trail. fun! can be hard to follow on the second half

This really is a nice spot that’s close to everything, yet secluded enough that you don’t hear other noises (traffic, homes near by, other hikers). Lots of trails that weave in an out of each other so watch out for other trail users!

This trail would be grand for snowshoeing! Winter hike with the sun cascading through the naked trees as we strolled along a trail matted with a mix of oak & maple leaves. Completely silent except for the occasional bird chirp and crack of ice as the water drains back into the Bad River from Muskrat Flats leaving the ice suspended clinging to tree trunks. Nice double loop walk.

Such a beautiful trail! Really peaceful, you can’t hear road traffic and I didn’t run into many people. The main trail isn’t super well marked so it’s easy to go off on side trails rather than the main loop, but it’s also easy to find your way back. After one hike it’s easily become one of my favourite trails in the area.

My wife and I walked our dog here on a brisk 28 degree day. Parking in the scenic overlook lot and taking a right to lead us through some wooded areas, around the gathering areas with pavilions, past the dam and beaches was boring. Once we got past the beach area the trail turned into a much better walk than it had started filled with wooded areas, tighter trails and plenty of sites. My GPS only tallied 3.7 miles but I would recommend this to anyone as it was an easier trail with minimal ascents and descents to be concerned about.

Fun trail and nice views of the river. Since it is a mountain bike trail it is a little hilly and twisty, but not too hard to walk.

Great trail with some awesome views. Had the trail to ourselves.

on clear days you can see everything from this tower! multiple states, provinces,

Very nice trail!

Morton Taylor entrance is always potholed and isolated parking lot makes it kind of sketchy (maybe use Heritage Park entrance?) but it really is a nice escape from suburbs that it’s tucked behind. Gravel dirt mix with flat path, can get pretty muddy but some unexpected scenery. Great lunch walk if you work in area or stroll for locals.

Wooded loop tucked along Clinton River Trail in West Bloomfield. Easy, peaceful path that’s never very crowded and I always see at least one deer. Gravel dirt mix in spots, typically kept up but still gets pretty muddy. Expanded parking lot a couple years (or so?) ago.

Nice trail. Some decent hills and very well marked.

wonderful trail with a rustic feel. When your hiking you feel like your way out away from development. Beautiful river scenes and nice woods.

Really good trail to have fun with the kids...

excellent day trail. low traffic. fairly well maintained. well marked.

Great trail.

Easy clear trails that are dog friendly. trail starts off of the soccer field. Other park trails lead to the library and back.

Better than I expected it would be.
