Look for the Ni River Trail sign to the right as you turn into the Business Center. There are 4 easy trails to choose from. Some of this is ADA accessible. Great place for birding. Farm Pond Trail Upland Forest Trail Vernal Pond Trail Ni River Trail

Perfect little hike to get kids started. Make sure to bring bug repellent. Pawpaw trees were starting to fruit will have to come back to pick them when they are ready.

This is a nice trail, especially if you have kids with you. It's relatively short and pretty easy. If you decide to do the Ni River Trail that's attached to Salamander loop, it's also nice and kid friendly. Just a heads up's tagged as wheelchair friendly...and this trail/loop is definitely not wheelchair friendly once you enter the trail.

Simple, fairly flat, well shaded trails. I started by following along the Farm Pond trail, then back towards the trailhead where I hooked up to the Upland Forest trail, jumped on the Vernal Pond trail. This leads back to the Upland forest trail and connects you to theNi River Trail. I took this out and back to the Farm Pond trail and then back to the trail head. This was approx 2.75 fun miles.

Easy little hiking trail that I did with our 4 yr old. There are a few trails here; one is ADA. Salamander loop is easy and fun. I will admit that when you get to the trail that follows the Ni river it gets a little thinner and is closed during hunting season.
