I’ve been back here before on my bike got lost Decided to come back and take it this time still got lost the signage is very sparse and poorly placed and they need to get back here and put some directional arrows up so you know where you’re going and clean up the deadfall

First to Review

Not bad just boring. We left the trail to explore and we found a trail down and around Swan Creek (that was cool!)

HikingGreat!Over grown

Could be a nice trail, needs some maintenance as there are several trees down. Very nice setting, quiet with very little noise pollution which was only at the very beginning and end. The trail is marked by yellow blazes, there is a cross country ski trail marked by blue. The yellow blazes are faded in spots but easy to follow over-all just have to keep an eye out for them. Bug spray was effective to deal with the insects. Some wildlife was out, however, we did have an dog with us. At the beginning of the trail there is a small bridge that had a couple slats that had fallen out, it is just over a small runoff so would be able to walk through it if need be.

This trail was a work out for me. Many overgrown and fallen trees, and at the end (I did this counterclockwise) the trail disappeared and I reached a dead-end and was forced to climb a steep overgrown embankment to complete the hike. The east bank is rough as it follows the creek. If I hadn't used trekking poles, I would have fallen in the creek numerous times. Return loop on the west bank travels high above the creek and is much easier, at least until the last 3/4 mile.At this point, I would advise walking the seasonal road rather than traveling the impossible last portion. Still, it's beautiful.

Seriously, I can't maintain the trails myself. I cleared these trails three years ago and (Wakazoo, North and South Swan Creek Trails and the trails around Ely Lake) I am presently making another trail in the Allegan State Game Area. Hopefully, I'll be done with that one by September. I am asking for others to help me clear the trails. Please bring your loppers or chain saws, paint or just muscles and spend an hour a year on a portion of the trail. Me and hundreds of others will appreciate it!

HikingBlowdownBugsFloodedMuddyOff trailOver grown

Loved the idea of this trail. Didn’t mind the challenge of the lower portion at all. But it was overgrown and riddled with mosquitos. Worst I’ve seen on any trail so far. OFF didn’t touch them. At the turn around point the trail got difficult to follow. We started at the damn. Once we turned around to head back we got off trail. Ended up on a dirt road somehow. Trail was not marked on this East portion. We still have no idea where the trail was at a certain portion. Ended up with ticks crawling up our legs and attaching. Had to strip at the car to check for ticks. Again love the idea of this trail but it’s not maintained. At all. If it was cleared up and trail was actually marked it would be awesome. Beautiful area.

Love the challenge of the lower trail by the water, but we’ll be back in the Fall once the mosquitoes have vacated. Added an additional half mile to avoid the worst swamped out mosquito haven. Saw loads of wildlife. Definitely a three season trail for us.

I really enjoyed this hike! We took the wrong trial head at first then realized it started by the red gate. Dead horse still there.

Gem of a hike East side gets a little technical so watch where you step. Found a dead horse, which was a little weird

Nice trail, with very few visitors at the moment. Most just coming for the fishing near the trailhead. Not currently being maintained and lots of downed trees, so expect some difficult spots.
