Trail Use and Maps

The City of Sterling Heights is home to over fifteen miles of dedicated trails throughout our vast park system, ranging from soft surfaced gravel, to asphalt and concrete. Hundreds of thousands of park users traverse the various trails annually with goals ranging from extreme physical fitness to enjoying peaceful and serene time away from the rigors of everyday life.

No matter what the purpose, these trails are truly a treasured resource in our community and it takes a collective effort to keep them that way. Whether it is your first time on the trails, or you are a frequent visitor, knowing and following the rules of the trail will help keep everyone safe, and make your experience more enjoyable!
