Great shorter hike through the woods. The hills make it more of a challenge for a beginner like myself. Well kept up and close to home.

Light traffic (Sunday afternoon), many hammocks off the trail, few bugs, a couple of hills to make you work a little more. Nice, well maintained trail - just wish the main “loop” was a little longer. I did the trail 3+ times to make up for the length. I didn’t notice the homes people mentioned but there are parts where I could hear cars zipping by.

A great, paved spot around the lake that’s perfect for a walk or run. There’s a cute detour to overlook the lake. Very popular, definitely not rough terrain for a hike.

I love this trail! Beautiful spots to see

went for a run there today was awesome perfect weather at 60 kind of wet became because it rained really bad the night before it was sweet going to the golf course that was all overgrown and turned into trails there was lots of really cool trees and it was neat to see old sand traps and stuff

Trails wind all over the place I tried to check out as much as I could there was some livestock they had some big cats owls and Eagles I probably started three or four deer running off trails down sub Trails into nice Lookout areas where they were resting

Lots of people putting in effort to make this place nice from their little farm and Co-op Garden to all the different trails well worth $3 to check it out

My go to trail. It's close and has some decent views/terrain. It is pretty heavily trafficked. People love to bring their dogs here. Doesn't bother me but something to keep in mind.

Love this trail! Moderate amount of people. You can definitely make the trail longer if needed. Plenty of gorgeous spots to see along the way while you're hiking! It really isn't as buggy as people say, or maybe that's just my country roots talking.

Very nice place to bring the dog for a nature walk. Besides the small parking this is maybe my favorite park

Nice wooded trails. A bit buggy though. Lots of standing water.

As far as a paved trails go this is pretty nice many more miles of trails connected to this as well. Very little shade, and lots of insects in the summer. Nice place for an outing though as there are many other activities available here.

Nice trail to take a quick walk/hike on. Mountain biking here is okay, lots of random cornfield trails.

For what it is, it’s a cool little spot. Definitely short, but if you’re nearby and looking for a quick, pretty walk.... it’s pretty solid :) The only other downside is that it IS super close to neighborhoods, at times you’re just past people’s backyards

Super short. Finished the long route in 20 minutes. Took it around again. However, gorgeous trails. Different terrain and trees. Really good for dogs and if you just want a quick hike.
Close to some roads so you can see houses and cars on parts of the outer trails.
Pro: right next to Robinettes!!

Would take this trail many times again. Can be long if you want. Moderate level. Takes you to a river and has a lot of woodsy nature. There's natural sand too! Would definitely recommend. I've been here a few times already.

If you want a quick easy paved walk around the lake, this is your spot! There's a quick nature trail on the side. I saw a turtle and some fish in the pond. Was a beautiful day. Decently trafficked. Probably really busy in the summer time.

Extremely buggy when I went.

cool area and much larger than it seemed

Not a lot of shade. Doesn’t really feel like a hiking or jogging area. A lot of natural oil rigs, and cars and dust from the dumps surrounding the place. Water is nice but it doesn’t really give you the outdoors experience. Not really secluded. Seems like it used to be a yard waste site and the Devos just filled it with water and some paved roads.

I had a good walk but there has to be better places.

Nice hills, views, wide paths, but could use more trail markers.

Love the trails! Very beautiful/peaceful. Also great trails for a dog

Great trails, very rustic. Great for taking dogs

Very nice, short secluded hike in the city.

Great for hiking with dogs. Add 3+ miles to take the Sand Creek Hike Loop . Trails are marked well. Easy to follow. The Sand Creek loop is more narrow in places. Think twice before hiking here directly after a large rainstorm; river bottoms area becomes washed out. Nice place to see and hear woodpeckers; best area in West MI to see a carpet of trillium and other wildflowers in the spring.

This was an awesome hike! There was a sand dune and teepees everywhere. The trails were winding and there were some very steep hills. It was beautiful. Perfect for a hike with the whole family!

awesome trail for being smack dab in the middle of the city. Dirt path, tall trees, sand dune, elevation and a selection of difficulty to choose from. Perfect trail when you just need some nature around you.
