Walk the Dequinder cut to Eastern Market

We will walk the Detroit Riverwalk to the Dequindre Cut to Eastern Market for lunch and shopping.

It is a 2 mile walk each way and we will walk at an easy pace. It usually take 45 minutes.  Some of us will be staying  Downtown for dinner.

Join us at the Carousel at Rivard Plaza at 12noon.

This is a joint meetup with eight for a date meetup.

*********************************

Dequindre Cut


The Dequindre Cut Greenway, an urban recreational path, officially opened to the public in May of 2009. The 1.35-mile greenway, developed through a public, nonprofit and private partnership, offers a pedestrian link between the Riverfront, Eastern Market and many of the residential neighborhoods in between.

Formerly a Grand Trunk Railroad line, the Dequindre Cut is a below-street level path that runs parallel to St. Aubin Street, between Mack Avenue and Woodbridge Street just north of the Riverfront. Well-known for its urban artwork and graffiti, the first completed section of the Dequindre Cut is between Woodbridge Street and Gratiot Avenue. The greenway features a 20-foot-wide paved pathway, which includes separate lanes for pedestrian and bicycle traffic. Entrance ramps to the Cut are located at Lafayette Street, Gratiot Avenue and at Woodbridge Street.

The Dequindre Trail Extension,  connects the first section of the Dequindre Cut from Woodbridge Street south to Atwater Street near Milliken State Park and the RiverWalk. Further north, beginning conceptual plans are underway for phase II of the Dequindre Cut, which would extend the pathway north from Gratiot Avenue to Mack Avenue.

    Hello to all and thanks to everyone for their good wishes and good conversation. I especially enjoyed getting to know Abbey, Steve and Stacy with whom I had nice chats while hiking. I weighed all my stuff when I got home and I was carrying 29#. Still have a way to go yet but I am making progress. Went to Ann Arbor today to meet with a relator and explore co-housing developments X3.

    Look forward to being over there and doing fun things, eating and watching films with you all. Thanks again,
    BEV

    I could drive a couple people TO Detroit, but I plan to stop and see family in the suburbs afterwards, so I wouldn't be able to drive you back.
