A quiet escape with a wide gravel path. I've been here many times, surprisingly few bugs today.

A nice, easy trail that goes through swamps, woods, and fields. A few ares were a bit flooded in April 2020 when I visited, so boots were necessary! Otherwise, it was a nice walk.

This trail is great for a casual stroll in nature. Definitely “easy” in terms of difficulty, but there are some slight hills/slopes to keep the terrain interesting. The western chorus frogs were out full force, and we even got to see a beaver!

It's not dog-friendly! Also, the app was out of wack when tracking me.

Short, nearly flat loop through mature oak/hickory/black walnut/maple forest along the Huron River. Best part of the hike is the Huron River views near the beginning. Wide gravel trail is unmarked but easy to follow. Bugs are fairly bad during the summer. The $10 daily entrance fee gets you into EVERY Detroit metropark that day, so it's fun to go Metropark hopping and see how much bang for the buck you can get!

First to Review

Trail s located in Oakwood Metro Park. This short but relaxing trail connects to the 1 mile Sky Come Down and the 3/4 mile Big Tree trails. all three are easy but enjoyable. best time is in the morning to view wildlife.we saw deer, squrils, snakes, and baby racoons. the nature center staff are frindly and helpful. the center is clean and welcoming. cant wait for fall and winter hikes here.
