I-275 Metro trail

Cycling on the I-275 Metro Trail in the Detroit area

As the name suggests, this trail runs parallel to Interstate 275.

It starts in NOVI at Meadowbrook road in the north near 1-275 and I-696 and goes south to Huron Road near New Boston.

It is 32 miles or 52 km.

The rail is asphalt, wide and well-marked with “you are here maps” and markers every ¼ mile.

It was originally built in 1978 and over recent years bridges and surfaces have been updated.

The trail is smooth and flat with a few grades.

Most of the time you can see or hear the traffic. There are a few sections that are totally surrounded by trees. There is limited shade.

There are no benches, water or toilets, but you can go off on a few side roads.

I biked the section from Michigan road in Canton to south of Romulus and back on a sweltering day!!

An excellent trail, if not the most scenic.
