Rouge River Gateway Trail

As you pass under the Ford Road overpass on the Hines Park Trail, the trail continues and changes its name to the Rouge River Gateway Trail.

This 2-mile-long scenic bike path crosses two bridges over the Rouge River, through densely forested woodland and the campus of UM Dearborn, before arriving at the trailhead on Michigan Avenue. The trailhead, across the street from Greenfield Village and the Henry Ford Museum, is also a good place to begin your journey to Northville and back.
