We live in the area and hike this trail for training regularly during the summer months. There isn't a lot of difficult terrain for challenges, but it gives us an opportunity to hike 6+ miles with a loaded pack.
Although we are backpackers, we have camped in the campground once or twice over the years. Since we're accustomed to backcountry camping we feel that the campground is a little too developed and lacks privacy. Nice beach, though.

I corrected the trail location....although there are more then 1 trail head to access the trail. The original location was off by 40 miles, and was not even shown in the correct park.

Great place to hike. The All Trails location is incorrect. The trail is at the state recreation area. Trail is well marked with signs at all intersections. There are 3 or 4 parking locations in the park where you can access trail heads.

Great "hidden" treasure. Trails are easy and peaceful. Found an off trail leading to a quiet spot by the lake. Will definitely return to tackle the whole hike.

The trail and park ARE still there...(contrary to another review)... It's a state park located near Metamora, Michigan that has camping, swimming, boating, fishing and hiking / nature trails (easy to moderate)... The location shown on the All Trails map is incorrect... The park is located off of Herd Rd near Metamora ... (If leaving from Metamora take M24 north to Pratt Rd, west on Pratt to Herd Rd, south on Herd Rd to park entrance)
