    South Lyon, MI
    The Huron Valley Trail runs from South Lyon to Wixom. It is intended to extend to the west from South Lyon and connect to other trails leading all the way past Jackson. Michigan has over 2,600 miles of trails which is more than any other state and we are expanding. The trail currently extends to Wixom with a branch that connects to Kensington Metro Park and Island Lake State Recreation Area.
  • McHattie Park in South Lyon is a nice little park located off Pontiac Trail, just south of 10 Mile Road. It is adjacent to the Witch's Hat Historic Village and the Huron Valley Trail. I should do a separate insight just for the trail because it is a great and growing community amenity, but I have just included a link for it here. When finished, that trail system is supposed to run all the way from Lake Saint Clair to Jackson (and beyond?). That means it will eventually connect to The Clinton River Trail, The West Bloomfield Trail, The Paint Creek Trail and The Washtenaw County Border to Border Trail that will run into downtown Ann Arbor and others. That is going to be a trail system! You will be able to bike and hike all over Southeast Michigan.
  • Witch's Hat Depot Museum and Historic Village in South Lyon is a nice community amenity that includes an old church, a one room school, a train depot and museum. I have included a link to the city's web page for it and a brief drive through video. It is in or adjacent to McHattie Park and would be a great place to take your kids. Special tours can be arranged.
  • It is hard to believe that I have lived in the South Lyon area for over 40 years! I almost choke when I say 40 years; it makes me feel so very old...which I do not feel and will not accept. I first lived in the lovely town of Livonia, and my family moved when I was in the 9th grade. When my friends heard where we were moving, they teased me about moving to the country. Questions about whether or not I would have pigs and cows were frequent. It seemed so far away from all of my friends, but I quickly made new ones when I started school at South Lyon High.

    South Lyon was a one-traffic-light town at that time. The years flew by as I graduated and became an "adult". Although my first apartment was not in South Lyon (not many were available at that time), I continued to call South Lyon my home. I was active in community sports, playing softball and volleyball. When I started working in real estate, the South Lyon area was my main focus, and I was proud to purchase my first home in downtown South Lyon.

    As I married and the kids came, the house quickly became too crowded, so we moved to the "country". Yes, it was still in the South Lyon area – only two miles from downtown -- but technically Lyon Township. I always thought my children would graduate from South Lyon High, but we were delighted when they opened the new high school, South Lyon East. My son was proud to be in the first graduating class of South Lyon East, and my daughter followed three years later. The education they received has directed both of them to college where they are working hard to get their selected degrees.

    I asked my daughter the other day if she would live in South Lyon after she graduated from college, and her answer was simple: "where else would I live?" I suppose the only thing that could lure us away from our roots in South Lyon would be a house on a sunny beach with powder white sand...but frankly, if that doesn't happen, my family and I are staying right here!
