Getting to Hines
great thing about Hines Drive is that it can be accessed from many roads
and cities. The park starts in Dearborn and runs through to Northville.
I will give the entrance locations starting in Dearborn.
Ford Road start/end of Hines.
Ford Road just west of Evergreen. Traffic headed west on Ford Rd. may enter
via entranced ramp. Several parking areas can be found just after entering
West Outer Drive entrance, located
just North of Ford Road, off West Outer Drive. Head west on Hines
to find the closest parking and picnic area. Bathrooms and playscape are
also located here.
Woodbine entrance, Located just west
of telegraph, and south of Ann Arbor trail. Woodbine leads to Hines drive
Beech Daily only offers pedestrian
access via a paved path.
Inkster entrance, just south
of Ann Arbor Trail, Both entrance and exit is possible here, turn left or
right to find parking areas.
Merriman entrance, Just north
of Warren road the entrance is on the west side of the street. Enter here
and you will be about the middle of Hines Drive. Parking can be found right
at this entrance, as well as in either direction along Hines Drive. Bathrooms,
picnic area also located here.
Ann Arbor & Newburg roads
both connect to Hines Drive just south of Plymouth road.
Haggerty entrance is now open
again form both north and south directions, enter onto Hines here and notice
the ball diamonds, parking areas, picnic, and soccer fields (west on Hines).
Northville Road & Wilcox
are both access points for anyone coming from Plymouth. There is a lake
separating the two roads, and a parking area can be found both at the lake
and across the street.
Continuing west along Hines Drive, Hines connects to Northville Road again
for a short section. Head left onto Northville Road (West) under the RR
bridge, and just past the 5 Mile road stop light, turn left again to re-enter
Hines Drive. Along Northville Road there are several parking areas that
connect to Hines Drive as well.
7 Mile Start/End of Hines.
At 7 Mile Hines either starts or ends depending on where you begin. Just
west of Northville Road and outside of downtown Northville. Head left on
7 mile to find an ice cream stand and party store. If you head left then
right on center street to access downtown Northville, shops, bars, coffee
shops, bike stores, etc.
