This trail network along Detroit’s Riverfront has many components, including the RiverWalk, Dequindre Cut, Mayor Dennis W. Archer Greenway and Southwest Greenway. It also includes the extensive East Jefferson, Lafayette, and Belle Isle bike lanes. These segments are in various stages of planning, construction, and expansion.
Our map shows what exists as of now. Enough is completed so that getting around this area by bicycle, scooter, or on foot is relatively straightforward for those of all ages and abilities.
Both the Joe Louis Greenway and Iron Belle Trail connect to this network, which open up possibilities for much longer trips.
Destinations – There are countless places to visit, including Downtown, Eastern Market, Belle Isle State Park, the DNR Outdoor Adventure Center, and the Historic Elmwood Cemetery. The highlight is Detroit’s International Riverfront with its amazing views of Canada.
Events – The Detroit Riverfront Conservancy operates both the RiverWalk and Dequindre Cut. They have a packed schedule of events year round.
Rentals – There are many options for renting bicycles, including MoGo Bike Share, Wheelhouse Detroit, and Riverside Kayaks (on Belle Isle.) Both Wheelhouse and Riverside offer tours as well.
