Mike Levine Lakelands Trail State Park is part of the Great Lake-to-Lake Trail that stretches from South Haven to Port Huron. The trail starts at Hall Road in Livingston County and extends to Hawkins Road in Henrietta Township in Jackson County. The Levine Trail is also part of the Iron Belle trail system that connects Ironwood to Belle Isle.
A 1.1 mile paved section of trail lies within the Village of Stockbridge, with crushed aggregate surface making up the rest of the Ingham County segment. Other 5HF service area stops along the trail include Munith (Lions Community Park) and Gregory. The Stockbridge trailhead includes playground equipment, benches, a large staging area for equestrian use, a parking lot, and bike facilities.
In June 2018, the trail was renamed in honor of Michigan trails champion Mike Levine. It is one of five linear state parks that were converted from abandoned railroad corridor in the Michigan state park system.
The 22-mile trail is popular with walkers, hikers, bicyclists, horseback riders and cross-country skiers. The trail connects directly to the Pinckney Recreation Area equestrian trails and provides an additional 13 miles of riding (see the trails equestrian map for helpful information specific to equestrians). Motorized vehicles and hunting are prohibited.
