Great trail that starts with a beautiful view of the heron rookery. Only one hill to negotiate makes this 2 mile loop great for kids, and there are plenty of edible berries along the way too. Just look out for the feral chipmunks! As you will usually see 20+ along the way ;-)

Lovely flora and fauna can be found on the Nature Trails surrounding many bogs. The trails varied from winding dirt paths to boardwalks through marshes with a handful of inclines. Many photo ops and places to explore. I would definitely recommend this as a spot for day hiking

A wonderful scenic nature hike--we saw many birds, frogs, snakes and chipmunks. An easy hike.

We walked the 8.6 hike here--it is moderate with many inclines. Take water with you as there are stops but they are spread out. Beautiful views of the lake.

The Wildwing Trail is closed to jogging, bicycling, and pets (as is all of the nature study area at Kensington Metropark) which makes it a nice place for a leisurely hike. Many people feed the birds here which makes them practically tame. I have hand-fed six different species.

Loved the trail. It was a bit crowded but maybe because it's early in the season

My kids and I really enjoyed the Nature Trail hike, very beautiful, scenic, Many routes.

I really like this hike around Kensington Lake. I saw and photographed many birds like nesting swans, Sandhill cranes, geese and others. It is very family friendly

Decent climbs and a couple of trail options. A bit boring for 20+ miles, but the lake is refreshing in the summer.

Easy hike, beautiful pictures. Not too many birds in the winter, but I an looking forward to going back in the spring!

Couldn't find the mountain bike trail. Paved trail was nice, though not what I was looking to ride
