What we do

The purpose of our trails is to inspire and encourage a new generation of explorers.

Who we are Downriver Linked Greenways is a non-profit organization whose mission is to help facilitate trail planning, development, marketing and programming of both land and water trails.

Since 1998 Downriver Linked Greenways has helped to facilitate over 75 miles of trails in the Downriver Region of Metropolitan Detroit. The current trail network includes over 100 miles of both water and land trails that reach within a half-mile of every home and connects millions of residents to each other across Downriver. Our trails traverse over many different areas that include rural, urban, and over 7,000 acres of parkland. The Huron Clinton MetroParks, Wayne County Parks, Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge, National Huron River Water Trail, and Rouge River Water Trail anchor our entire trail system. In addition, 25 miles of the statewide Iron Belle Trail travels through 10 of our communities.
