At The Dyrt, we share camping tips from our community of campers and campgrounds. With so many campers staying home, we continue to share this info so you can plan future camping trips across the U.S.

It’s day 16 of our 40-day #GetOutAndGO Giveaway, today featuring the Dequindre Cut Greenway in downtown Detroit, MI.

The Detroit Waterfront Transformation Project is a perfect example of a new way you can interact with Detroit’s blooming urban greenway.





Today we’re taking a closer look at the Dequindre Cut, a newly opened, 2-mile paved trail accessible to foot and bike traffic in the heart of downtown.

The “Cut” is a reference to the trail’s history as a railway when it was dug out some 25 feet below street level by the Grand Trunk Railroad in the mid 80s.

To celebrate the re-use and transformation of our urban spaces, High Hopes Hammocks is giving away a $100 gift card. Enter to win here.

No bike? No problem! Check out Wheel House for rentals and explore more of Detroit via the Dequindre Cut next time you’re in town.

Get Out And Explore Detroit, MI!

Once you’re done with the 2-mile stretch of The Cut, head a few blocks closer to the river and take the Detroit River walk to Milliken State Park and Harbor. Explore all that Detroit and Michigan have to offer: use Michigan.org to plan your next adventure to the mitten, the UP, and beyond!
