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!

Fun to disc or just hike. Beautiful view at the top.

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.

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.
