Proud Lake Recreation Area is located on the scenic Huron River and offers diverse and plentiful recreational opportunities. More than 20 miles of trails cover several diverse habitats. It also offers the unique River Hawk Lodge.
We visited yesterday for the first time and were pleased. The trails do get narrow in spots, but are overall pretty easy to navigate. Dogs welcome, on leash. The paths are well shaded, but I imagine could be buggy if the weather conditions were humid.
So many trails. I hike this park with my family or solo often. Easy to maneuver. The Marsh Trail is a great change up from hiking the traditional trail head. Lovely old pine forests, river, lake, marsh, lots of boardwalks. Really a wonderful gem here in Michigan. Wonderful hike for families.
Proud Lake trails are vey easy and well marked. There is a nice simple loop around a marsh area. Also trails lead to the Huron River's edge. It's very shady and wooded.
This is also a popular X-Country Ski spot. It's rather flat so nice for beginners.
