Very overgrown and closed in. There were a lot of mosquitos. We turned back after the first trail. Not very kid friendly.

Absolutely gorgeous. Surrounded entirely by water with multiple hidden away cozy places to read.

Belle Isle is a superb getaway inside Detroit. Except for the closing of one end of the island for a month each year for the Grand Prix and my impatience waiting as the state eventually repairs and renovates all aspects of the park, most of the island is a great set of fields, gathering places, views of Detroit and Windsor, space for walks/jogs/bike rides, and occasional planned activities. The museum fills a nice hour, and the greenhouse and garden are maintained beautifully. The fountain and casino building are great for photos. The walk out to the lighthouse and on the trails across the little bridge is pretty, pleasant, and excellent for a lazy picnic or nap with a book. Watch the sunset, watch the variety of people, and watch the big container ships as you escape the hubbub of the city for a while.

Scenic and a relatively easy route. Good for a relaxing walk in the summer.

We love this route. We are frequent visitors of Belle Isle and since the State of Michigan is now in charge, it is an amazing place. Great place to hike with dogs and let them swim. (This is a DOG FRIENDLY trail and state park).
