Our Trails

Making Connections

Downriver Linked Greenways transforms the Downriver region into a healthier community for people-powered transportation, conservation, and recreation, by creating a network of trails and green spaces that connect people with places.

Downriver Linked Greenways Trails

The Downriver Linked Greenways hiking, walking and biking trail network includes over 50 miles of community trails for close-to-home recreation. Our trails connect suburban and urban residents and visitors with over 7,000 acres of parkland.

Our Routes
