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.

Great place for a winter hike!

Perfect hike in the wintertime.

These trails are great for a good walk, being out with the family or dogs. Not a whole lot of variation in the terrain.

Love Proud Lake and its extremely scenic Huron River and pine trees. Feels like you're up north.

Nice trail with light traffic during the week. Plenty of wildlife and big enough that you don't hear any road noise.

Nice park. Not too busy. No mountain bikes, so the paths are in good shape. In some spots the "trail" disappears in heavy brush. Other parts are on shaky wooden bridges. Surprised to see it ranked moderate - I recorded only a 30 ft elevation change on my 4 mile trip

Nice and easy 5 mile trail. Saw an owl catch a snake, that was awesome. Moderately busy but wasn't too bad.

It's a pretty basic Michigan trail - nicely shaded but not a lot to look at. A highlight is there are some walkways on the bog that are fun to walk along and feel the bounce of.

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.

trail to upward north is partially overgrown and difficult to navigate with some closed off areas. overall, great hike for beginners with several outhouses along the paths.

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.
