Macomb County Trail Network

No matter if you prefer to walk, run, bike, rollerblade or skateboard, there’s room for you to get outdoors and move your body throughout the Macomb County trail network. From dedicated loops in local parks to the 24-mile Macomb Orchard Trail, there are many types of pathways for non-motorized travel. Don’t wait, be sure to take advantage of all that local trails have to offer!  ​​​​​  

All trails open one hour before sunrise until one hour after sunset. Please make sure pets are on a leash and you clean up after them. Since these are multi use, non motorized trails, walkers have the right of way. Lastly, be aware of your surroundings and stop at all road crossings.



Macomb Orchard Trail

The Macomb Orchard Trail is a 24- mile hike and bike path that starts at 24 Mile Road and Dequindre in Shelby Township and travels through Romeo, Armada and ends in the City of Richmond. The trail was built on an abandoned railroad, originally called the Michigan Air-Line Railway. Trail users can expect to experience urban landscapes, wide open spaces, tunnels of tree canopy, quaint small towns, and of course, orchards and farms. This cross-county trail also connects users to over 180-miles of regional non-motorized trail networks
