Nice walk in a Michigan woods. The back part of Penosha, along Teahen road, is unfortunate, but that is just a short bit of the trail. If you just want the scenery, and some nice hills, do the 2-mile Kahchin; if you want more of the same (pretty) woods, but more miles and a few more hills, do Penosha. Neither trail, nor the combined set, is hard; these are at most moderate (I'm 58, in decent shape). Minimal wildlife observed. The trail is quite well maintained, is sandy in some stretches, packed dirt elsewhere, some erosion, rocks, or roots lots of places - a nice woods trail.
do this one quite often, my dog loves the up down-up down slopes, as do i.
I'd make sure you've got pretty good shoes on, this trail isn't for half way go'ers!
Good hike if you're looking for a couple of hours and some decently challenging terrain. Decent variation of scenery.
Great! Would have loved to do the longer trail.
Awesome. I love the smell of blossom in the forest, and chipmunks all over the place. Went for a quick hike alone just did 2 miles to see how it's, next time will do a longer hike.
Lots to explore here. Great for families or solo hiking. Geocaches are abundant as well. Plenty of inclines. Short or longer hikes available. Cool off in Bishop Lake when you're done!
