Trail is hard to follow at points due to being a part of a ski and disc golf course. Nice hike but odd terrain (loose rocks and mulch at points.

Not my fave. Hard to follow and trail goes onto posted private property. There’s construction ongoing which looks to have disrupted the trail. There are many other small trails in the area too, which can get confusing. The only way I knew where the trail was at times was to use the interactive map to judge my location to the actual trail map.

Beautiful view at the top of the ski hill. The verified route on All Trails took us to a posted sign for private property. We had to adjust our hike to complete the loop; consequently, we didn't get the Verified Completed badge.

The start was promising and the huge trees are beautiful. But the trail quickly disappeared and we cut over to the road and walked back in the leftover fake snow from the ski hill.

Used to be the old frolfing course and it’s interesting to see all the changes that have been made with the new ski hills. The trail is a bit harder to find

The trail was not marked well at all. We got lost often. Thank you for having a virtual map so we could navigate our way back home!!!

tried hiking after a fresh snowfall and there's a sign that says you have to have a pass to hike during ski season. went to the ski place and they didnt know anything about it so hiked a ways on a path next to the xcountry ski trails. will have to try back in the off season.

I grew up on Hickory Hills. I used to Frisbee Golf here daily and has one of the better views of Traverse City at the top of Hickory Hills on the hole we called "Waterfall" The only downfall to Hickory Hills these days is how crowded it is these days but that's what you get when such beauty is just a walk away. If you're not in shape, take it slow because there is definitely some Hills considering this is a skiing hill. Enjoy the outdoors and pick up after yourself!

this is totally for frisbee golf not for hiking as stated. can't imagine running or snow shoeing.

A really nice walk in the woods quite steep and strenuous at parts at flat and easy and others. It is poorly marked and I had to use my trail guide from AllTrails to make sure I was on the right path but a beautiful area

This is a great trail if you live nearby. Easy walking trail & snowshoeing. Yes, this is a trail where many dogs are walked but avoid them by going weekdays when most dog owners are working. Walk or run the hilly trail to m-72. It's an oasis in the city, where you'll often see deer grazing.

First to Review

Essentially a dog park. Despite plenty of signage, of the 12+ dogs we encountered, only ours was on a leash. Had one chump argue it was appropriate for his to be unleashed because the dog was generally friendly, even after it charged us. Won't be back.
