The Kensington to Proud Lake Connector trail is a short segment of sweet singletrack that connects the paved biking path network at the east entrance of Kensington Metropark to Proud Lake Recreation Area. Hikers and bikers share this trail, while equestrians have a dedicated connector trail. Using the Kensington to Proud Lake Connector, riders can experience the trails of Island Lake Recreation Area, Proud Lake Recreation Area, and the Milford trails without leaving a bike path.

      Did not have any issues as the last report. It is marked off of Milford road which is the biking trail. All good on 10/13

      This was very overgrown and barely ridable. It does improve a little after it crosses South Hill Road (I was headed East). In fact, I had trouble...

       Mapping is wrong on eastern end. It actually connects further along PL Loop 4. Google Maps reflects the current routing of the trail as of 9/2/17.
