very relaxing hike that you can easily make as short or as long as you would like it to be. I saw a fair amount of wild life in the trails and some very beautiful views, especially around the lake.

Loved it! Beautiful!! Great place for a relaxing walk in early September, perfect time of year.
Although I would have loved to walk/hike alone, I'd say this trail is stroller friendly. I pushed our "all-terrain" stroller with my two year old, which was somewhat bumpy from tree roots and a bit of a challenge up small hills. Besides that, it definitely was worth the experience of a nature adventure with my daughter, both of us very much enjoyed it together.

Love this trail. Great for running!

We very much enjoyed this hike, especially north of the Boardman. We parked south. But we hadn't realized the new Grasshopper boardwalk would take us to a different (north) trail and finally we worried how to get back to our car on the south side of the river. This map was helpful.

Some of the best trails in northern Michigan—beautiful and very well maintained. Great for casual hikes and trail-running alike. The recently-constructed Grasshopper Bridge essentially doubles the size of the walkable park!

Great views, creek side good for dogs to cool off, very quiet

This was our first ever singletrack and we had a blast! Staying at Timber Ridge RV Park makes access easy. We will ride more over the next two weeks.

Great maps , love the views of the now un-dam'd river.
