What a beautiful area! We can’t wait to check it out in the summer.

We arrived about 11:00 am for a walk around the lake under a clear blue sky. The temp was crisp when we arrived, with the muddy trails mostly frozen. There are about a half dozen stream crossings, most with bridges. We saw only one other person on the trail. The east and south sides of the lake are the best. The rest is mostly meadow trail. Saw geese, woodpeckers and heard other birds, including redwing blackbirds.

This is a great trail. It has something for everyone. The first part is open and easy to walk. The last third is in heavy forest and steep hills. what is nice there is a lot of places to take a break and rustic restrooms.

Didn't care much for the actual hiking trail, it was basically a mowed path. However once we switched over to the mountain bike trail it was really good! Lots of hills, walking over stones to get through the water, nice bridges.

This is a good trail for beginners, since you can do a section at a time and work you self up to the full loop. I use it to get out of the house for a bit with out driving a long distant.

Blah. Boring. Just another reason to not go to Ionia.

Nice trail keeps you on your toes. A little out of the way but the campground is nice to stay at.

Very beautiful trail, I lived right next to it and have been coming here for the public beach for years. Me and my Fiance go for a walk here almost every other night. Amazing sunsets and views. Good for mountain biking too.

P.S. They also have canoe, paddle boat, and kayak rentals for $20 at the campground main office. :)

Very nice open paths if you look for them, lots of side paths, and great for exploring.
