Cascade Peace Park is approximately 198 acres in size. This property consists of floodplain and meadow areas with extensive old growth forest. It is rare to find such a large block of mature hardwoods in the Grand Rapids metro area. Warblers, hawks, and owls benefit from the extensive closed-canopy forest. In spring, look and listen for migratory warblers and Scarlet Tanagers. In addition to the upland forest, this property has an open meadow and a small stream with associated wetlands and lowland forest.

Good trail for a short and easy hike. Scenery is nice and I saw deer. Trails are well marked. This trail is more easy-moderate in my opinion.

We love this trail for an easy hike. It doesn't have a scenic outlook though.

Very short run, but some nice hills. Very, very well marked with a lot of "you are here" signs. I ran in light snow and had no trouble finding or staying on the trail. Probably the best marked trail I've ever been on. Great for a shorter hill workout. The trail is one main loop with a lot of side trails that you can add on for extra distances (about .5 mi each side trail). There was a work crew doing some work during my run who obviously were contributing to an extremely well maintained trail. If you're nervous about exploring a new trail in a short amount of time, then this is your run.
