Much longer than .8 miles. The trailhead itself shows 9 miles with multiple ski trail loops you can walk with additional unmapped trails as you go. Very pretty views with the trees and the sand.

Great shorter hike through the woods. The hills make it more of a challenge for a beginner like myself. Well kept up and close to home.

Light traffic (Sunday afternoon), many hammocks off the trail, few bugs, a couple of hills to make you work a little more. Nice, well maintained trail - just wish the main “loop” was a little longer. I did the trail 3+ times to make up for the length. I didn’t notice the homes people mentioned but there are parts where I could hear cars zipping by.

My go to trail. It's close and has some decent views/terrain. It is pretty heavily trafficked. People love to bring their dogs here. Doesn't bother me but something to keep in mind.

Very nice place to bring the dog for a nature walk. Besides the small parking this is maybe my favorite park

For what it is, it’s a cool little spot. Definitely short, but if you’re nearby and looking for a quick, pretty walk.... it’s pretty solid :) The only other downside is that it IS super close to neighborhoods, at times you’re just past people’s backyards

Super short. Finished the long route in 20 minutes. Took it around again. However, gorgeous trails. Different terrain and trees. Really good for dogs and if you just want a quick hike.
Close to some roads so you can see houses and cars on parts of the outer trails.
Pro: right next to Robinettes!!

This was an awesome hike! There was a sand dune and teepees everywhere. The trails were winding and there were some very steep hills. It was beautiful. Perfect for a hike with the whole family!

awesome trail for being smack dab in the middle of the city. Dirt path, tall trees, sand dune, elevation and a selection of difficulty to choose from. Perfect trail when you just need some nature around you.

One of my first hikes in Mi. Not the prettiest trail but peaceful

There are a few different trails with little to moderate elevation gains. Beautuful hilltop to sit and watch the sunset. My 13 year old says it's just the right length for a trail. Not too long, not too short.

Good for a moderate hike, a few steeper hills that add a challenge. If you go around enough times, it's a decent hike. Dog friendly!

Small Trail Area. scenic. Short as most trails in MI. Would recommend fro a run in conjunction with Robinettes Trail or a walk. Certainly NOT a hike.

One of my favorite places!

Super easy, but a nice little hike

Basic trails, lots of elevation change for the area.

.9 miles long and the trails are horribly marked. Outhouses not maintained and have been trashed. Garbage and dog poop all over the trails.

Very good trails to get ready for something bigger. The trails are usually pretty low populated and mountain biking through shouldn't cause any problems for anyone. There are always lots of squirrels and other little critters hanging out in the underbrush as this forest is filled with mostly Pine trees and some undergrowth. There is even a section that has almost a "dune" like feel to it, but you'll have to find that yourself!
