Beautiful wooded path meanders next to the river, through the woods and into a meadow. Option of staying on the flat path or tackling the wooded slope to head back out. Mucky and boggy in the spring and after a good rain.

Loved this trail. Very scenic with wild flowers and a good tree canopy. Easy with very little incline. A great view of the Grand River.

This is definite a choose your own adventure hike. Park is very well marked but as long as you are on county land, you can venture off the path(there is a portion that's private property with signs asking that you stay on the path). At the front of the park there is a leash free dog park which seemed to be very popular. I was able to hike all the way to the grand river and back (almost 3mi total) and experienced trails of multiple skill levels. There is paved trail, gravel trail, stairs, and cleared path. I did get a little muddy. Definitely didn't feel rape-y to me, which I often worry about when going alone. Bonus-there are bathrooms at each end of the trail(and I think in 3 places total).

Fun and quick hike. Slight hills in areas but it's really easy. Lots of trees by the river for hammocks.

Great trails for a walk. I would recommend being wary after a hard rain. I had to turn around several times and choose a different way to avoid being ankle deep in mud and standing water. It would have been great without that. Would be nice if gravel could be added to those parts of the trails. Wasn't even able to do the river loop but it rained so much a couple days ago, it's hardly the parks fault.

this was very nice trail system. there is more than one loop so you can make your hike the maximum distance or less if desired. we hiked 3.2 and did not cover all of it. people were very friendly and curtious. plenty of parking and restrooms available. it was also well marked
