A vital link connecting miles of regional and cross-state trails, across the county and Michigan.
From the Air Line users can head west to Kensington Park, south to Northville and east to Pontiac, plus since the Trail is part of the Great Lake to Lake Trail, if you'd like to attempt a more ambitious journey, then a Great Lake is easy to manage.
Other Area Trails
West Bloomfield Trail
Starting at the immediate east end of the Air Line, the 8 miles of the West Bloomfield Trail feature a limestone-surfaced pathway though wetlands and forests. It connects to the Clinton River Trail in Sylvan Lake, and is part of the Great Lake to Lake Trail.
Clinton River Trail
Stretching across five communities over 16 miles of trail, the Clinton River Trail connects the West Bloomfield Trail with the Macomb Orchard Trail in Macomb County. The CRT is also part of the Great Lake to Lake Trail route.
Huron Valley Trail
Connecting at the west terminus of the Michigan Air Line Trail at the Wixom/Milford Township border, the Huron Valley Trail is an asphalt-surfaced path with two branches: one heads southwest to the town of South Lyon, while the westbound path leads to Island Lake State Recreation Area and Kensington Metropark and is part of the Great Lake to Lake Trail.
M-5 & I-275 Metro Trail
The M-5 and, further south, I-275 Metro Trail largely follow the routes of the highways for which it is named. From the Metro Trail one can ride into Northville or take Hines Drive all the way to Dearborn. Following the Metro Trail further south allows connections with the Downriver Linked Greenways, which offer trail access all the way to Lake Erie Metropark.
The Milford Trail offers a scenic trip through forests, meadows and wetlands from the northern end of Kensington Metropark to the vibrant restaurants, bars and shops of downtown Milford.
