Very nice trail but signs need some updating

Easy hike in a fairly wooded area. Usually seems to be less crowded than some of the other trails in the area, with access just off of Grand River between Okemos and Williamston. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Decent day hike with some pretty views of the Red Cedar river. There is another set of trails across the road as well from the Harrison Nature Center. Great place to take the family for a hike, fish from the docks, and see the rehabilitated hawks on the backside of the building. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Okay maybe I missed an notice from the parks here this season. Did it say closed til next year? There has been no attempt all year to remove numerous large trees fallen and blocking main trails and other areas especially Legg Park the trail has waist high over growth. Very few bikers and hikers - people are no longer coming here and I see why.

Trail was decently easy. Flooded over in parts, so be advised before going during the wetter months. Trails are well-kept.

I enjoyed this trail very much. yes you are next to a high class neghborhood for a couple of parts of the trail but overall its very secluded. I enjoyed the fact that this park has some elevations and short hill climbs. its been perfect for getting out and getting in shape. I could see some of these trails being flooded in the wet seasons.

The trail for the Eastgate Connection is somewhat confusing with all the different routes to take, but it was quite enjoyable with the bumpy road that took us through the woods. The only thing I did not like about this trail was that it was right next to a very high class neighborhood, and I would have enjoyed it more if it was more isolated. Otherwise, it's a nice, not too long trail.
