Recreational Trail to open this weekend
The Lower Rouge River Recreational Trail is set to open this weekend, a date that coincides with the Rouge Rescue Day. A 2.5 mile section of the trail, beginning at Haggerty Road and ending at Sheldon, is the first completed portion. Plans to extend it all the way to the I-275 bike path in one direction and Canton Center Road in the other direction are underway. The trail is open to joggers, walkers and bicyclists. No motorized vehicles allowed. There are also mountain bike paths cut into the trail to form a 3-mile course. The trail access point is off of Morton Taylor Road just north of Michigan Avenue. Our own Eva Davis will be on-hand for the ribbon-cutting ceremony at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday.
