Pretty easy 1.7 miles. Beautiful scenery.

Super easy. The people at the visitor center are very helpful and have lots of maps. We did 3 miles. You could add the old golf course and turn it into 5.

Excellent walk in the woods, quiet contemplative; fairly well marked trails. There are some small hills so would classify it as moderate. Also trails can be muddy.

Take a GPS

Worth the walk. Very beautiful!! Bring bug spray! Lots of bugs!!

Not a bad hike. More popular for bikers.

More popular with bikers than hikers it seems. $5 for non-residents. Nice trails but nothing spectacular. Difficult to pay money when there are so many free trails around.

Great trail! Definetly challenging. Hilly, Muddy, Rocky and lots of tree roots. Keeps you on your toes. We loved every mile.

Great trail and variety of trails to take for desired duration.

It has been a couple of years since I've been here. There used to be trash, loiterers, and graffiti activity... I quit going. However I started coming here again to train my dog and am very pleasantly surprised... it is all cleaned up and maintained. There are deer, black/brown squirrels, an occasional cat. I've walked 10 miles on the trails and I consider this to be a nice little gem in Westland.

Our hiking group has been here a few times- good signage; would like to check this out in the spring

Okay trail for the city, but definitely not one of the best in the state like its current ranking. Lots of road noise.

Absolutely stunning trail!

The trail itself is quite nice, but going down the stairs into the sinkhole is definitely the highlight. It feels like you've stepped into the twilight zone!

We hiked the small loop, a little over 2 miles, on 11-10-18 in 4-5 inches of snow and loved it! Will definitely be going back to hike the whole trail!

one of my favorite hiking spots in western Michigan

Great place to hike, it's for foot traffic only, beautiful area with mature trees, hilly terrain, and well maintained trails.

Great place to hike with your kids and your critters

Very nice trails with lots of options to vary the length. Neat floating boardwalk. Most trails are flat and hard packed. In warm weather there are flush toilets at the trailhead off Sleeper Street.

Wasn’t able to find a clear trailhead or path. There was a note on the board about seasonal hunting taking place but it looked like the trail has been shut down completely.

Good hike; a moderate workout. Poorly marked; got lost. Too many power lines made it seem less like an escape to nature.

This park is well maintained and safe. The trail is very scenic.

Nice trail! Weird turn style at the end though.

Excellent pathway running along the Flint River.


Fun and challenging!


I would not call this easy in the fall months, due to the fallen leaves obscuring the trail at times, and especially when there has been as much rain as there has been in the UP this fall. The trail is very close to the Tahquamenon River at times, so that if the river is flooded, so is your trail. There were 2 different sections where I had to remove socks/shoes and wade through knee-deep water to continue on the trail. It is posted at the trailhead as a "primitive" trail, and they are right. Good footwear and supplies are a must, as cell signal is VERY sparse. But it's a beautiful hike; definitely worth it!

Great family trail
