Spring Hikes/Camps\ Map

Fun trail! Not well marked and there are a bunch of side trails, so make sure you have a map. It’s late fall now, so there was a dusting of snow and I saw no people the whole time. Very nice day hike!

Super easy. The people at the visitor center are very helpful and have lots of maps. We did 3 miles. You could add the old golf course and turn it into 5.

Wasn’t able to find a clear trailhead or path. There was a note on the board about seasonal hunting taking place but it looked like the trail has been shut down completely.

A decent, paved alternative for when other trails are too muddy to utilize. Wasn’t too highly trafficked and it’s plenty wide for bikes and walkers.

A short, very wet, but very calm walk. My walk today was a little cold for bugs, but with all of the standing water, I'd reckon the bugs are awful. The clearing areas are amazing for bird watching, and there are some great overlooks and educational areas.

A pleasant walk, very flat with mostly meadow views. The path is primarily paved, with some areas of mowed grass. There are also some nice views of the river.

lots of deer. Easy and peaceful. We did have a problem with someone on a motor bike when signs are specifically posted.

My favorite place to go hiking in the Lansing area.

the trail was beautiful and peaceful. For a Saturday it wasn't to busy and there wasn't a lot of people on the trail.

Easy, fairly void of people, really beautiful and peaceful. The water running through makes it even better! Will definitely be back.

Mostly wooded, but mixed with a little open landscape. The various loops give nice options for doing longer or shorter hikes.

Easy, peaceful walk. The pups love it.

nice variety with field, woods, river, ravine, steps, hanging bridge. Somewhat limited size.

It's paved

It’s a nice escape from the city.

I loved this trail. You’re in the Deepwoods about 95% of the time. It is a little bit dominated by mountain bikers but my experience was that they were all very pleasant and let you know as they were coming how many of them to expect. Made it very easy to just get out of the way momentarily. Good elevation changes and great distance. I’ll definitely do it again the next time I travel here

Well maintained trails and lots of trail maps / posts along the way. Stuck to the main trail, but will be back to hit up the little off runs.

Easy, pretty views. Dog loved it. Not at all strenuous but an enjoyable walk.

We went out of season which was our own fault but besides that it was short and didn't seem used much. There were a lot of spider webs crossed over the trial.

I love this place. Quiet but some people around. Good hiking trails. Sand dunes. Bring a hammock and stay a while.

Beautiful trail! Super peaceful and great hike with lots of hills! I would say it’s a moderately challenging.
Bring bug spray!!!

great for teaching kids how to ride a bike. flat and paved.

first time here. loved it

This trail is moderate, definitely some hills and lots of roots on the trail. It was just great being outside, away from the noise of life and looking at beautiful trees. My best friend and I walked it twice. I like that they had benches to sit on throughout the trail. It was lightly trafficked the time I went, grateful for that. I recommend this trail if you don't mind inclines.

Much longer than .8 miles. The trailhead itself shows 9 miles with multiple ski trail loops you can walk with additional unmapped trails as you go. Very pretty views with the trees and the sand.

I usually do the perimeter of this loop system. it definitely is fun, a mostly wooded, moderate trail. porta jon at the parking area. even when the parking area is full I don't usually run into a lot of people. one of my top 3 for the area.

Great shorter hike through the woods. The hills make it more of a challenge for a beginner like myself. Well kept up and close to home.

Nice well maintained trail that is good for all skill levels

GPS tracking app I used showed 7.45miles around the loop. Fun trail to run! It includes gradual inclines, and nice downhills to keep it interesting. All the bikers we came across were nice about telling us how many they had in their group coming, so nice community to run around.
