    Birmingham, MI
    Birmingham is a city with a population of about 20,000 that is located 18 miles northwest of downtown Detroit on Woodward Avenue and Maple Road. It is an affluent city. According to census data, between 2010 and 2016 the average annual household income was $112,545. The average annual household income for the U.S during that time frame was $55,322.

    It has a vibrant downtown with lots of shopping, dining, nightlife, and commercial space. According to the 2010 census, over 38% of the population have a Graduate/Professional Degree and over 35% have a Bachelor's degree. That is over 78% of the population with a Bachelor's degree or higher. Also according to the 2010 census, about 30% of the U.S. population has a Bachelor's degree or higher, so it is a well-educated town. As would be expected for an affluent highly educated community, their public schools are highly ranked. See the link below.

    Linden Park Trail in Birmingham is located south of West Maple Road about a 1/4 mile west of Southfield Road and West Maple Road. By the way, the Willits Trail is across the street from that intersection and connects to the Booth Trail.

    Linden Park Trail runs along the Rouge River. It is about a 1/2 mile long and is perhaps the prettiest of the four trails in the immediate area. The Booth Trail connects to the Quarton Lake Trail which is right across the West Maple Road to the north of Linden Park Trail. The south end of the trail is accessible from Shirley Road near West Lincoln Street.
  • Booth Trail in Birmingham runs along the Rouge River near downtown Birmingham. The trailhead is located at Booth Park at the intersection of Harmon Street and Old Woodward Avenue. The trail is less than 1/2 mile long but is pretty. It ends at Willits Street but if you cross the Rouge River at Willits Street then you can continue to West Maple Road on the Willits Trail. From there, turning to the right and going west along West Maple Road for about 1/4 of a mile, will bring you to the Quarton Lake Trail on your right to the north and the Linden Park Trail to the south on the left.

    Quarton Lake Trail is located in Lower Baldwin Park near Harmon Street and Lakeside Drive. The trail runs around the lake and is a little less than a mile long. It runs along the entire east side of the lake and half down the northwest side of the lake. There is a fishing dock on the east side of the lake and the south end of the trail ends at West Maple Road.

    A short walk to the east on West Maple Road will take you to Willits Trail at the intersection of Southfield Road and West Maple Road. The Willits Trail connects to the Booth Trail by crossing the bridge over the Rouge River at Willits Street, or instead of walking down Maple Road to the Willets Trail, you can cross West Maple Road and continue on the Linden Park Trail. Booth Trail ends at Booth Park at the intersection of Harmon Street and Old Woodward Avenue with a nice play area for kids and nearby restaurants and shopping. I have included a link to a map of Birmingham Trails but it does not include Manor Park which also has some trails.
