Closer to an easier moderate trail. Love the views and the squeaky sand. Just be careful of the black flies during the summer.

Very well kept trail and very good trial markings I was bummed at the end because I forgot to record it

Very overgrown. We ran out of trail and had to bushwack our way back.

Seems like a nice environment, but be aware the boardwalk over the water is potentially hazardous for small children, non-swimmers and small, unhealthy dogs or dogs with disabilities.
November 12th my husband and I, with two of our dogs, began walking the boardwalk. Just after reaching open water, my husband looked out across the marsh, at that same moment, our aging pug stepped off the opposite side. She hung for two, maybe three seconds by her collar, then slipped out of it and into the water. She stepped off because she has no vision in her right eye, the same side of the boardwalk that she stepped off of. She also has deteriorating vision in her left eye, and has never swam before, so my immediate concern was that she might drown. My husband laid down on the dock and tried reaching for her, luckily instincts kicked in and she resurfaced and began dog paddling, but she was out of reach. Because she is little, aging and has poor vision, my husband had to get in the water too rescue her.

Words cannot describe my love for Manistee. What a gorgeous trail, and the river makes it one of my most favorite places to be. Lot's of people everytime I go, so it isn't the most secluded place and there is a lot of litter left from the ungrateful few. But, don't let that defer you, this place is worth every minute you spend here.
