The scenery is absolutely breathtaking! This is one of the few places in the Michiana area where you can find old-growth forests. Michigan State University uses the 500 plus acres for research purposes. I will say, if you're a fly fisherman, you'll enjoy the brown trout fishing here! I also enjoy the fact that there is a large amount of biodiversity indicating that the ecosystem here is really healthy.

I'm at this park/trail 4-5 times a week for my workout. Decent little hills, typically quiet, always clean. Some beautiful lake views and the feeling of being far from the city. An annual Oakland county parks pass is only $30, and well worth the price!

The Green Lake loop is a good beginner trail for both trail running and mountain biking. The newly created Big Kame loop is intermediate level for both with more obstacles (rocks, tree roots). The trails are in very good condition. Small lot that holds about twenty vehicles. It is busy most of the time; however, you don't see many people out on the trail.

very over grown

Various terrains represented Great hike and swim Hit the CG museum on the way out

This was a very nice walk/hike for all ages. The trails were nice and wide generally we taken care of (we just had a lot of rain so there was quite a bit of washout in some area, but easily navigated).

Great trail trough beautiful forest with gorgeous overlooks ending up on Lake Michigan beach.

I hike the blue loop every so often ( i usually stick with the yellow because of time restraints). If anyone has hiked or biked the blue trail, have you seen the VW bug in the woods? I am trying to get a history of that car and how it got there. if you have any info please let me know. Thank you.
