Nice view. Sadly didn’t complete the big loop because the kids got restless, although they had really enjoyed the smaller, unmarked trails beside the creek before we hit the main trail. Very curious about the old wrecked Prelude hiding in the bush.

Nice trail. Very easy. Views of the Rouge River in the sunshine were stunning. Fantastic place to be on a day that was supposed to be a scorcher. But the shade provided by the trees made all the difference. Will definitely do this trail again. It would be beautiful in the fall.

Despite my friend spraining her ankle and there being an extreme heat warning, it's still lit fam. The views are A+. I would go back in the fall when the leaves are changing colours. You can see chipmunks and birds. FYI wear proper clothing especially shoes so your friend doesn't sprain their ankles.

super quick and easy trail, lovely in the fall as the ridge the trail is along runs at about the level of the surrounding canopy.

Great trail overall! Lots of great views with water along the trail! NOTE: beware of ticks! I went with our dog in mid March and we found 4 ticks on him! keep your dog off the beaten trail!

Super easy trail! The back portion is very nicely removed and wooded, but takes a bit of time to get back there. The front of the trail has many power lines.

This is a great place to get a view of the fall colours in the Rouge Park. Easily accessible to city dwellers and flat, meadows of wildflowers, a bit of poison ivy off trail near the beginning so know what you are looking for and stay on the trail and you will be fine. This trail connects to Twyn rivers and the Cedar trail if you bypass Pearce house and go down the hill, but looping back from cedar trail isn’t easy from the other end- you’d need to take the road. The Rouge is full of amazing trails, endangered species and evidence of coyotes, deer, rabbits, possum, and more! Don’t forget to check for ticks when you get home, but don’t let that stop you either- no chance of Lyme in the first 24 hours.

Do this one quite often in the evenings. My kid and dog live it especially the observation deck. Almost guaranteed to see deer and bats (if dusk). Great for birders; went 2 nights ago and could barely hear ourselves talk over all the bird chatter.

Great trail, good escape for the the city life. Do not go to the trail head. If you park between 3rd and 4th zoo parking lots by the conservation house there is free parking in the winter!

Very nice trail in such a close proximity to the city. However, it's full of ticks. If you end up going make sure to check each other and especially your dog from time to time. I found 5 ticks on my dog, luckily before they got attached.
