The Macomb Orchard Trail
The Macomb Orchard Trail is a non-motorized path that provides users with a safe transportation and exercise route through central and northern Macomb County. At a length of 23.5 miles it is the largest hike/bike path in the County, and one of the largest in southeast Michigan. This 236-acre linear park serves as an important connection between local communities and the surrounding area. Locally, it connects people to parklands, downtowns, businesses, schools, residences, and open spaces. Regionally, it provides a connection from St. Clair County to Oakland County, and on a statewide basis, the trail system will ultimately span from Lake Huron to Lake Michigan.
Macomb County’s 27 municipalities have over 120 community parks, each with its own unique charm. Activities include: play fields and courts, nature walks, fishing areas, pools and water parks, inline skating rinks, picnic areas, historic villages, dog parks, trails, concert pavilions and many other recreational assets.
