The Detroit Riverwalk in downtown Detroit, Michigan is an easy 0.4-mile one-way walk that features views of Detroit, the Detroit River, and Windsor, Ontario.

Walk Description
While not a hike, this nice stroll along the Detroit River is well-worth checking out if visiting downtown Detroit. This walk begins just west of Hart Plaza and ends near Renaissance Drive. Along the trail, walkers will find ferry and cruise boats, boarder patrol boats in the Detroit River, and a lively atmosphere as this is a popular spot to hang out or take a walk. Across the Detroit River is the city of Windsor, Ontario, which provides another city landscape that sits on the banks of the river.

Parking
Walkers will find parking garages for the near the trailhead and parking coordinates provided; however, this is a very popular walk-in trail if you've parked further away. Please do your parking research before showing up to plan accordingly.

Pets
Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out by the hiker.
