I've only done this trail on horseback, and I loved it! Gorgeous to do at sunset & even has a great stretch to canter!

Great day trip with my dog. Plenty of route options while you're on the trail to shorten or extend your hike. Ate lunch in the "picnic area" after

Beautiful park with nice trails. The waterside location makes it especially appealing to the person who appreciates nature and generally there are different species of animals to view.

Ran 10k in the trails, only saw one person, two deer and about 20 squirrels. Very good, I shall return!

Very beautiful nature-filled trails great for biking or hiking. Easy trails for the more casual rider but some sandy areas and one large scary hill. One of my favorite trails though!

Went skiing here for the first time this week. The trails were beautiful and well groomed and there were even some hills (those were a lot of fun). I would highly recommend it.

We live very close to this trail and because of this we have never hiked here! Our mistake. The trails are very nicely shaded and quite pleasant to walk on for casual hiking. Mosquitoes were a bit of an issue but a little spray took care of that. We walked the two outside loops on a beautiful Sunday afternoon and still only saw a couple of other people, and based on the overall feel of the place we plan to also come back with grandchildren for sledding and do some cross-county skiing, also.

My husband and I hiked this trail with the four legged babies today. It was mostly shaded, very well marked with numerous maps along the way, and a wide trail. There were several benches for water breaks. We noticed a lot of people mountain biking, but there was plenty of trail for bikers to get around us and the dogs. We are definitely coming back to these trails to explore the loops we didnt get to today.

My wife and I went to go hiking but couldn't because they close the trails down during winter for cross country skiing. The ski rentals are very reasonable in price and also offer rentals on ski skates and snow shoes. It was an awesome experience!

This is a very nice park in the winter time (I have not visited yet in the warmer months). They have numerous ski trail loops that are groomed and track set. The lodge is great with a roaring wood fireplace, concessions, and ski/snowshoe rentals. I know they have a good amount of lighted trails for night skiing. Entrance to park is free an skiing is free with the exception of rental cost if needed.

Spent half a day here. Lots of diff trails and well marked. Some heavily shaded, some not so shaded. AT&T and Verizon both work somewhat throughout trails. Mostly flat and level with a few small sandy hills.

We took my son on a walk after preschool, then later when my ddaughter got out of class we went back for a hike this was a great FIRST HIKE for them, I hope to teach them all the things about nature we learned from my father and training this way they can enjoyit in their future, we ocasionally walk a trail and have a lunch on it, in a tree, on a log etc. I LOVE NATURE!!! and we have been doing a bit of picking up of trash that we come across throughout our hikes or drives through the bush....THANKS ALLTRAILS< GREAT SITE!!

Happy to find this convenient group of trails during a visit to Holland, MI with my wife. Did 5-6 miles of running and had a great time on the well marked trails.

When i have lived in MI all my life and pigeon creek is a very nice walk or bike ride. There are plenty of different routs to take and many ways to get back to the parking lot. I lived 15 mins away from it and have gone there more times than i can count. All seasons its a good time. Winter they have sleading on a hill next to entrance. Snowshoeing and cross country skiing is amazing even more at night they have some of the trails lighted.

Took my Grandaughter with me a nice easy walk. Some hills, we did the outer loop and checked out a couple overlooks. nice and peaceful saw a couple people on the trail. Saw some little animals running around. By my calculations we did about 6 miles. The trails were marked very good. plenty of maps to let you know were you are. plenty of chances to cut your hike short if you want, many options to get back to the trail head.
