trail locations for Michigan

This is an awesome trail system for getting lost (but in a comfortable way provided it's early enough in the day!!!) ...the sand padded trails are rich with moss and mushrooms. Fall is the best time to explore when there are no crowds and girl and dog can be free!!!

Easy fun trail that intersects with Dune Ridge trails and makes for a silly adventure. Great for my dog too!!! Great moss and small growth, I love hiking at the end of summer-start of fall when there is no one around!!

Great quiet easy walk up and down through dunes and forest, my dog loved it!! Terminates on the crashing shores of lake MI and that's fun but we only stayed for 5 minutes bc the rangers are strict on the beaches about dogs. Even though we literally saw ZERO people. Gorgeous end-of-summer-hike-with-hound.

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.

I enjoyed this trail very much. yes you are next to a high class neghborhood for a couple of parts of the trail but overall its very secluded. I enjoyed the fact that this park has some elevations and short hill climbs. its been perfect for getting out and getting in shape. I could see some of these trails being flooded in the wet seasons.

Okay. Very easy paved trail with two unpaved side paths toward the creek. On the humid day I visited, there was an odor of sewage, thus my 3 rating.

Beautiful trails. Great for running!

Good trails along St Joe River. Very pretty setting, fun to take your dog!

A moderate hike with some good up hill stretches. Only saw one other person on this date but trails look in good shape. Lots of mushrooms if looking for things off trail. Trails were not marked as well as I would like but figured it out fron map I got at trailhead.

Cascade Peace Park, a perfect name, this place is peaceful. It's a beautiful wooded hiking trail. There are benches every so often and thank goodness lots of 'You are here' signs. We saw a deer and squirrels. There were some trees down across the path but otherwise the trails seem well maintained.
