Two parks in one night! We’ll meet at Raintree Park in Troy, then follow the park path out to John R. Road, crossing at the light at Niagara Drive to walk to Beaver Trail Park. We’ll walk the semi-wooded paved trails there, then head back to Raintree. Call it a night when we get back to the parking lot or take a lap around Raintree’s paved, flat trails. Distance: 2.25—3.25 miles.

June 9, 6pm: Rochester Hills Public Library, Rochester

From the Library, we’ll take the Rochester River Walk south to pick up the Clinton River Trail. Turn around at Diversion Street for a total of 1.25 miles or keep following the CRT. Depending on trail (and insect) conditions, we may do a lap through the Harding Green Space before following the trail to Livernois Road, looping through Veterans Memorial Pointe, and following the CRT back – maybe with a stop at Lake Norcentra, too! Distance: 1.25 – 4.25 miles.

Saturday Hike! Saturday June 11, 10am: Clinton-Macomb Public Library – Main Branch
40900 Romeo Plank, Clinton Twp. (park in the big lot on the Library’s west side, near Romeo Plank entrance)
This week’s hike starts off with a talk from a special guest from Beaumont Health Club! Then the first 1.5 miles of our hike follow a paved path through the Clinton Twp. Historical Village and super pretty Tomlinson Arboretum. Call it a day after 1.5 miles or continue to nearby Canal Park to explore the gorgeous unpaved, wooded trails along the Clinton River before looping back to the library for a total of about 5 miles. Distance: 1.5 – 5 miles.

2775 15 Mile Road, Sterling Heights (north side of 15 Mile between Dequindre and Ryan)
Meet at James C. Nelson Park in Sterling Heights and we’ll walk about 1.25 miles together on the paved park paths. Call it a night or make it a park two-fer and head across 15 Mile and through a subdivision to do a lap around Beaver Creek Park before heading back. Distance: 1.25 – 4.5 miles.

Beat the heat this week with an air-conditioned walk around the “cushioned” track inside Beaumont Health Club! A Beaumont Fitness Coach will lead a 1.5 mile dynamic walk, educate on walking efficiency (PAL method) and end the walk with cool down/stretch. Call it night then or head outdoors for a bit to explore nearby walking routes. Distance: 1.5 – 4.6 miles.
