Trail Closure Notice

The Paint Creek Trail between Dutton and Silverbell Roads will be closed beginning TODAY Monday, June 17, 2019 for the Bridge 33.7 replacement project. This section of the trail will be closed until early September 2019. There is no detour. Please plan your visit to the Paint Creek Trail accordingly.


  1. Can I go off the trail at Dutton, got to Livernois to Orion Rd and get back on the PCT at Silverbell to go north? What I am asking Is Dutton and Sliverbell blocked?

    • Dutton and Silverbell Roads will remain open for the duration of the construction project. We DO NOT recommend that Orion Road be used as an alternate route due to safety concerns.

    • Yeah,
      I tried Orion Rd and sure risked my life as 18-wheelers fly by us at 50mph, displacing a lot of air that throws you off balance. Not to mention the shoulders are in badly need of repairs and unsuited to novice bikers.
      I also tried Dutton, off of Silverbell, and that’s also risky due to heavy traffic and poor road conditions for bikes (very stony, eroded shoulders).
