I remember as a kid the tracks still being used. This rail trail runs thru some nice places. It very long trees line both sides. You see a lot of wildlife. I will be walking on it tonight. So enjoy nature while getting healthy.

I have ridden this trail regularly for several years. The sections from 8 Mile Road north to 11 Mile are fine, although the City of South Lyon has too many bollards or posts blocking parts of the trail. From 11 Mile to Grand River there is evidence of deferred maintenance including many sink holes, several posts/bollards which were incorrectly removed... More

The Huron Valley Rail Trail bisects South Lyon and Lyon Twp offering a pleasant biking and walking experience. It can be accessed and exited at a number of locations in the city and township and offers a variety of views of the area.

This is a bike/walk trail that goes from downtown South Lyon and connects you to a series of trails that will take you to Kensington Metro Park, Island State Park and Lyon Oaks Oakland County Park. This is a well maintained course and meanders through wooded areas. Never very busy and you will see families as well as individuals riding,... More

Very good paved trail in sun and shade. Well used and flat so suitable for all ages. Don't stop in the shade too much as become food for the insects. Some small wildlife to see. Take water

Wide trail and fairly smooth through South Lyon from 11 Mile to 8 Mile. However the Twp. areas beyond are in need of work. They are getting rather bumpy. Also would like to see alternate roots branching in other directions closer to South Lyon. It's no fun riding out and returning on the same path over and over.

Excellent trail for biking with many places to park and get right on the trail. Quite flat and travels through the downtown South Lyon area.

It's a beautiful walk! It's also paved, which makes it nice for rollerblading. They use part of it for the library's annual 5K walk.

This is a paved rail trail that stretches from South Lyon to New Hudson. It is generally flay and in good condition. The trail crosses several dirt roads and passes through a tunnel under I-96. Services are only available in South Lyon and New Hudson. The middle section of the trail is relatively rural passing near subdivisions and through farmland.

You have access to the trail in many places, so you don't have to go far from home to get on it, if you live in the area. It is paved and you don't have to deal with motorized vehicles as they are prohibited on the trail. There are lots of trees and sometimes you will see a fair amount... More
