This is one of my favorite trails for running, and it's also a local favorite for walking and hiking. During winter/spring the trail ices over very quickly so please use caution during those times. There are many additional trails in Fitzgerald Park for more mileage. I would like to note that rock climbing is actually done across the river at Oak Park, there are no rock climbing routes on this side of the river.

Pretty much the only outdoor spot to feature decent faces and overhangs in the lower peninsula. Lots of people and pups enjoying the outdoors along the river. Beautiful sights of the river all along the bank. My only other comment is that I encourage visitors to always pick up their trash, as the trail features quite a bit of litter.

Great little hike along the river, cliffs, and high above on the railroad tracks. Have to pay to enter Park but definitely worth it if you're in the area.

So much fun hiking on my birthday! The ledges are not stroller or kid friendly though but The nature paths are.

One of our favorite hikes in the area! The ledges are gorgeous and you can see the rock climbers on the other side of the river. Perfect weekend day hike location. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Great out and back trail. There's a bunch of other trails in the park you can mix and match for longer distances.

beautiful area...sometimes a little flooded, but not bad. trails are short, but the ledges themselves are fun to climb on. always a favorite area.

This is a beautiful walk on a beautiful day! The only thing negative to report is that the directions are wrong. This is NOT off of Saginaw Hwy! It leaves from Fitzgerald Park, off of Jefferson Ave. for $5 daily fee. It can also be accessed from Island Park, in downtown Grand Ledge, for free. But well worth the walk!

the climb up the ledge at any point was a blast. the slide down on your bum was the worst. the paths down were just lots of loose soil, so it was challenging to navigate safely. that being said every climb up was a great burst of cardio on the trail. i would recommend a copious amount of bug spray. the only things worse than the mudslides down were the mosquitos everywhere.

Beautiful scenery for lower inland Michigan. A must-see if around the area!
