Written Directions

Start on Ford Rd in Dearborn Heights and head West. Take exit to Hines Dr. Follow Edward Hines Drive signs for complete route. Hines Drive turns into 7 mile road in Northville.

Scenery

The route takes you through a picturesque setting, with the tree lined road way. There are plenty of little dirt road parks to stop and enjoy a little relaxing time. It is a gorgeous ride in the fall as the leaves change colors. Great way to just unwind and passing ponds and streams. You are just minutes from large towns but you can't see or hear them.

Drive Enjoyment

Lots of smooth curves and some small hills. Speed limit is set to 40 for the entire length and there is only a few lights. For rides with skinny front tires just watch for cracks in the pavement, they are filled in but they like to pull your tire over and will pull you around like your on a wood bridge.

Tourism Opportunities

Great parks to stop in and any turn off puts you right down town, just remember to bring drinks/ food with you. Several restrooms, playgrounds, fishing spots along the path.

Motorcycle Road Additional info

Please obey the speed limit and be respectful of your fellow bikers / motorists. During the summer months you will find lots of riders as well as convertibles just out cruising under the foliage.

this is a great ride with plenty of trees and minimal traffic. the biggest down fall to it is part of the road is closed and you have to go on a busy road that connects back. its quite an inconvenience.(9/7/15) the trip takes about 30 minutes so i wouldn't take a long trip to see this road but if your close by or need to drive through the area i defiantly would make this part of your rout. it has great road quality for MI as well which was a nice surprise. and a fair amount to look at during the ride.

Awesome ride in the fall when the leaves change colors.

Goes by the police stables so make sure to watch your speed!

This is probably the nicest riding road within a few miles of downtown Detroit. It's paralleled by faster roads so most people on this route are there for scenery, not speed. The only downside in my mind is that it's fairly short.
