Downriver Linked Greenways is a non-profit organization whose mission is to help facilitate trail planning, development, marketing and programming of both land and water trails.
Since 1998 Downriver Linked Greenways has helped to facilitate over 75 miles of trails in the Downriver Region of Metropolitan Detroit. The current trail network includes over 100 miles of both water and land trails that reach within a half mile of every home and connects millions of residents to each other across Downriver. Our trails traverse over many different areas that include rural, urban and over 7,000 acres of parkland. The Huron Clinton MetroParks, Wayne County Parks, Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge, National Water Trail Huron River and Rouge River Water trail anchor our entire trail system. In addition, 25 miles of the state wide Iron Belle Trail travels thru 10 of our communities.
Partner agencies are critical to the success of Downriver Linked Greenways. Whether a community, business or other entity, our partners provide financial support for various projects and contribute their time, talent and gifts for each project.
