This is a great little biking patch in the middle of the city connecting the Riverfront to The Eastern Market area. We biked to the riverfront, then Campus Martius, and back to Eastern Market for some shopping, beverages and great outdoor entertainment at Berts Warehouse.

This is a great place to run, walk or ride your bike through the city. A well maintained path through lots of interesting murals that lead to the river walk. There are places to stop and rest and the river walk is beautiful.

I enjoyed the Dequindre Cut walk from Atwater to Gratiot and now I absolutely love that it extends to Mack Avenue. Another thing the City got right.
