The directions lead you to the back entrance to Kensington and direct access to the trail. The Wildwing trail is 1 of 3 near a nature center all under 2miles. The nature center, the beginning of the trail, has birdseed available to feed small birds which will come eat it out your hands. A beginner hike with scenic route.

wonderful Park, we cannot wait to go back during the fall colors.
Great trail that starts with a beautiful view of the heron rookery. Only one hill to negotiate makes this 2 mile loop great for kids, and there are plenty of edible berries along the way too. Just look out for the feral chipmunks! As you will usually see 20+ along the way ;-)
Lovely flora and fauna can be found on the Nature Trails surrounding many bogs. The trails varied from winding dirt paths to boardwalks through marshes with a handful of inclines. Many photo ops and places to explore. I would definitely recommend this as a spot for day hiking

A wonderful scenic nature hike--we saw many birds, frogs, snakes and chipmunks. An easy hike.

We walked the 8.6 hike here--it is moderate with many inclines. Take water with you as there are stops but they are spread out. Beautiful views of the lake.
The Wildwing Trail is closed to jogging, bicycling, and pets (as is all of the nature study area at Kensington Metropark) which makes it a nice place for a leisurely hike. Many people feed the birds here which makes them practically tame. I have hand-fed six different species.
