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!

Ehhh it was slightly creepy feeling with bare trees and muddy paths but wasn’t horrible.

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!

It's hard to beat a nice trail through the woods. A fairly wide meandering path with 15 or so marker posts. Good for kids, 2 miles, a few small hills but fairly flat. Not too many edibles apart from broadleaf plantain. Nice nature center. Good time for sure. Find directions to Oakwoods Metropark 28700 Oakwoods Park Drive, Huron Township, MI 48111
