Very flat easy trail that runs along the Paint creek from Rochester to Orion in Suburban Detroit area. Slight elevation from Rochester to Orion. Mostly graveled and very smooth, great place for a novice to work up their stamina, great view of the creek and forrest

    A flat gravel rail trail from Rochester to lake Orion. Very scenic in summer and fall as the paint creek crosses back and forth.

    Makes for a very easy way to get from Rochester to Lake Orion quickly!

    Great smooth trail to see animals and scenery. Very busy for the first 2-3 miles, as this is where all the walkers, hikers, runners, and kids on bike stay, but after that the rest of the trail is fairly open.
