Dequindre Cut Greenway

Detroit has a hidden jewel that starts at the Riverwalk just East of downtown near Atwater Street just North of the Milliken State Park.  The 1.38 mile long walkway way used to be a Grand Trunk Rail line and is now the beginning of a Greenway development that will eventually run all the way out to Mack Avenue.

While walking, jogging, running or biking along the Cut you see a great variety of Art installations taking the reclaiming of the space to a visual level.  There’s great people watching, too.  Families, fitness seekers and couples out for a stroll.  People power walking, Skateboarding and walking their dogs (for which there are waste stations provided) were just a few that you might see.

Do have a favorite hidden Detroit area pathway?
