See Below Details on Outside Fun in Rochester Hills!
Bloomer Park is an attractive park in the Rochester Hills and it is one of the people’s favorite places to hike and bike due to the large land mass of 206.9 acres, its diversity in activities and scenery. Bloomer Park used to be the state park in Michigan since 1924, until 1994 when the city of Rochester Hills took over ownership.
This park has paved trails that lead in wooded trails that are smooth enough for bikers. These trails are often surrounded by trees for people to bike through, and other areas where you’ll pass through rivers and large hills. It would totally feel like you are exploring the woods, only that you are on a perfect bike trail and other people are regularly passing by you. Although, it is not a large state park but rest assured that it is not a small park where you won’t have so much to explore,
As you go on riding your bike in the woods, you may come across really nice sledding hills. Go on biking around and you can get out of the woods via another point and you’ll see an international and topnotch velodrome for cyclists. Go back into the woods and continue to bike on the trails and it will lead you to another tail that opens up ahead, it is straighter, wider and finer gravels are used for the paving.
