      This trail system is a Canton Township/Wayne County funded multi-phase project that runs along the Lower Rouge River from Canton Center road east to just past the I-275 freeway to Hannan road. There are 3+ miles of crushed gravel pathways and in between are 5 miles of new hiking/biking singletrack. The trail consists of 5 (non-directional) half mile and mile long loops with some straight sections in between and more trail will be developed as the township progresses in the future phases. The terrain is relatively flat with some small hills, but is twisty and scenic with optional technical sections and some wooden bridges connecting the two sides of the river. (2 more are being installed this summer) By linking the various sections together, a rider/hiker can enjoy up to a 5+ mile loop.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
