Former site of the Kalamazoo mental hospital. Now WMU has turned this area into a wild life preserve. This boasts a very large lake, trails, and loads of wildlife.

We followed the trail all the way through. It was mucky and led to a major road. There was fencing around us for most of the trail. I would not recommend this trail.

Came from out-of-town and walked this in the Fall ~ was just okay. Lots of dog-walkers, and just average sightseeing. Easy trail to walk. Would use this all the time, though, if I had a furry-friend and they could swim in the lake!

Nice trail close to home. It can be quite busy at weekends. People don't always keep their dogs on a leash and - especially in winter - don't pick up after them! The walk around the lake is lovely and peaceful. Lots of bird life to see.

My boyfriend and I go here all the time with our fur children. I don't know who enjoys it more: us or the dogs.
