Hike-Bike Trail

The paved Hike-Bike Trail at Dexter-Huron Metropark is also part of Michigan’s Iron Belle Trail and Washtenaw County’s Border-to-Border Trail. This trail connects Hudson Mills Metropark, the Village of Dexter and Dexter-Huron Metropark. The trail currently ends at Zeeb Road. Accessible parking can be found at three of the four parking lots within Dexter-Huron Metropark and other locations outside of the park.

Dogs are allowed on the trails, but must be on a 6-foot leash at all times.

Picnic Shelters 

We’re adding new accessible picnic tables and grills to several picnic shelters throughout the park system. Work continues on installation of new concrete grill pads and securing picnic tables in arrangements that allow for unobstructed movement around them. Picnic shelter rental information will be updated on our website as changes are made.

Trails in Dexter-Huron Metropark are paved, mostly flat with minimal grade changes.
