Cheryl O. on Lake Defiance Trail
Nice trail, easy with minimal elevations. Late October hike the leaves are gone, but still some birds and reptiles to see (turtles an garter snakes).
Valerie C. on Volo Bog Interpretive Trail
So far I have only manged to get out here in semi decent weather - it is still a great place considering how close it is to the city so I can go for a day hike. There is a super quick , I think it is like a half mile boardwalk on the water and then you can go all the way around the bog and look at different animals, plants, etc
I've done this loop many times, and it used to be my favorite jog. It's most enjoyable during the spring and fall, during the summer (because it is a bog) the mosquitoes can get very aggressive, but a good repellent goes a long way. It's a fairly easy trail, but part of it is on a boardwalk/alligator walk which can be a bit unsteady. It's a very diverse trail and goes through prairie, wooded area, and lovely meadows. It also has a nice overlook built in an out-of-the way spot.
