You may be wondering how you can get to the Eastside on your ride. If you live on the West side of Macomb County, you can get all the way to Lake St. Clair on your bike! After you explore the Warren area, start your journey at our featured trailhead: Macomb Community College’s South Campus. From here you can ride west out to Roseville, St. Clair Shores, & Eastpointe. Part 3 of our Anne Nicolazzo exclusive photo feature will show you where and what to do when you venture through the South side communities, from west to east and back again!
Back for more fun? We thought you might be! This time we’re visiting the Mt. Clemens trailhead, just in time to celebrate the Mt. Clemens Bicentennial!

The Macomb Orchard Trail has been instrumental in my adventures through Northern Macomb County. Riding on MOT was blissful escape from the typical city riding and sidewalk surfing I was used to in other parts of the county. Whether it was a hot summer afternoon or a brisk fall day, picking up the trail in Richmond and riding to Armada was an escape from the day to day trappings of a hectic life.
With 32 miles of Lake St. Clair shoreline and 81 miles of the Clinton River traversing the county, Macomb County possesses a distinct fresh water advantage. The county is also equipped with 155 plus miles of non-motorized trials. These pedestrian and cyclists routes connect the county through some of the most scenic corridors bisecting farm fields and main streets.
The Green Macomb initiative was created by the Macomb County Department of Planning & Economic Development to support green infrastructure efforts that strengthen the economic vitality, quality of life, and environmental well-being of the region.
