Hickory Glen Park
As you enter the park, look for the cell phone tower straight ahead. Trailhead parking is located just right of Baseball Diamond #1 that sits under the large cell phone tower. The trailhead is located just right of Ball Diamond #1 off of the paved bike/exercise path. Look for yellow ground and tree markers that mark the trailhead. The trail loop is 5.7 miles. Look for yellow arrows (some at eye level and some higher) pointing you in the correct direction of the trail loop. Carsonite-type ground markers have also been installed at many “2-track” and blacktop path intersections to clarify the MTB trail direction. The trail makes its way around most of Hickory Glen Park and at about the 4 mile mark you'll find yourself back on the blacktop bike path heading towards the EAST end of the park. You'll cross over a very nice floating bridge and board walk, and just after you are over the board walk the trail picks back up on the left. After you finish this section of trail, you can pick up the MTB trail again on the EAST side of the blacktop path. After a quarter mile you’ll be dumped back on the blacktop path. Take it back over the floating bridge and pick up the MTB trail on your left again…and follow back to the trailhead. Be sure to take a copy of the posted map with you. Enjoy! Development of this trail was made possible by the DALMAC Fund.

Directions: If you exit I-96 at Novi road, go north on Novi road. Novi road turns into Decker road with out any warning, so just keep going straight untill it curves to the left and ends at South Commerce Road. Take a right on South Commerce Road. Go 1 mile, and when you get to the 1st traffic light, take a left on Glengary road. Take Glengary road for 1/2 mile untill you get to a yellow sign on the right with a picture of a bike and the words "250 feet". Turn right about a quarter mile past this sign at the entrance to Hickory Glen Park. The actual sign for the park isn't visible until you enter the park, so keep your eyes open or you'll miss the park! The trail head is just off of the paved bike path.
