This is a beautiful ride. About 90% of it is park land with plenty of wetlands and wildlife for the observant. The remaining 10% amounts to nothing more than the trail running between some backyards in a residential neighborhood coming out of Volunteer Park, a pass through a city park and along about a quarter mile if city sidewalk in central South Lyon. You'll encounter a busy intersection at Pontiac Trail before the climb over Garbage Mountain (a capped former landfill), a brief run past another residential neighborhood coming off of the WB descent of Garbage mountain, and a final busy intersection at Kent Lake Road & Grand River just before ducking into Island Lake Recreation area. From there all the way to Milford through Kensington Metropark it's all park & wetlands.
