Trail Facts

Lakelands Trail State Park is one of four linear state parks in the Michigan State Park System that have been converted from abandoned railroad corridors.

This trail currently is improved between Stockbridge and Pinckney, and paved eastward from Putnam Township into Hamburg Township.

The trail passes through wooded areas, rolling farmland, lakes, marshes, parkland, commercial and residential properties.

The trail is approximately 20 miles long, with an asphalt or gravel surface. 

Lakelands Trail is designed for hiking, bicycling, horseback riding and wheelchair use in Hamburg and Putnam Townships.

Cross-country skiing is popular in winter. 

Motorized vehicles and hunting are prohibited.
