Dexter Walking Path Being Transformed Now! How Can We Help the Process of The Border to Border Trail?

FullSizeRender (2)Have you walked one of the longest trails in the city of Michigan yet? Dexter has created one of the most magnificent trails yet, and the locals cannot stop raving about it. The Dexter Walking Path leads from Dexter to the Hudson Mills Metro park and is planned to be a total estimated 35 miles. Walking along the Huron River while the trees are throwing their leaves to the ground, preparing for the winter, gives me such a warm and comforting feeling. The weather has been beautiful for the past few weeks –  Absolutely perfect to grab your friends, kids, and/or animals to take a long walk along the Huron river.

Life seems to pass us by at a blink of an eye, before we know it we are caught up in our day to day routines and we are certainly not appreciating the earth that was created for us! The Dexter Walking Trail is the most glorious place to find peace and comfort while enjoying the breathtaking fall views and weather. A little bit of history about the Border to Border trail, a group of independent individuals started working to build one of the longest and most beautiful trails to ever exist. This trail is completely not government funded or funded by any other organizations. In order to raise money for this magnificent trail, the friends of the border to border trail have started sponsorship/promotional bicycle rides along the path, sponsoring cleanups beside the path, and distributing the Border to Border trail maps to all locals and friends so we can spread awareness and raise money for a great, healthy idea!

Michigan is famous for its autumn weather and picture perfect views – take a moment to appreciate the world we live in this season.


The path begins at Mill Creek Park, crosses Mill Creek, and continues to run along the west bank of the Huron River for almost three miles! At this point the trail then connects to a previous trail that continues about two miles down North Territorial Road and leads to the entrance of the Metro Park. The new trail in The Village of Dexter will link the Village’s parks into the regional system along the Huron River. The Village and the Dexter Schools are working together to extend the system south along the Mill Creek through the Village to the School’s future nature corridor and outdoor lab. The friends of the Border to Border trail have many, many innovative ideas but as they have shared with us – not enough funds! We must stand up tall and pitch in all that we can to help our state of Michigan grow and prosper. This breathtaking and one of a kind walking path is one of the most recently completed segments of the Border-to-Border Trail. This trail is still under renovation and is planned to eventually be a 35-mile trail running beside the flowing Huron River. Looking for Homes for Sale in Ann Arbor?

Ann Arbor’s Walkability Score – Is it Your Paradise?

Driving has always been one of America’s odd pastimes, with week-long road trips from coast to coast, but sometimes we just want to leave our car behind and walk. Maybe that’s why the downtown area has become so popular with local residents in Ann Arbor. The “walk-able” character of the city has always appealed to those wanting to forget the hassle of traffic and be conveniently located near the university campus, local grocery stores, and favorite restaurants. The charm of any downtown is always determined by it’s “walk score,” and Ann Arbor can proudly tell everyone it scored a 98 out of 100.
