West Olive, Michigan Map

This is a great trail with lots of peaceful clearings, winding loops, and quiet river scenes. There are lots of mosquitoes after wet weather, so use bug spray.

This is my new favorite park in the area! So beautiful with woods, streams, prairie and amazing nature center. Very well maintained and low traffic.

Nice trails, well marked, nice walk, dog friendly. Unless you walked every single trail that’s interwoven together you won’t walk the full 9.3 miles. You can pick out a pretty good loop and get about 3.0 miles. It’s still a very nice place to walk in the woods. Don’t forget to visit the majestic beech tree.

Best trails ever! Well maintained, easy to read signage, wonderful clean restrooms.

Gravel nice for family. If you're out to get a good run it it's great. Lots of steps

Easy hiking. Beautiful scenery!

The trails are very beautiful. There are so many loops that you could make it a nice long hike, or enjoy a short hike with the kids.

Great for a quick afternoon hike with great views. I was pleasantly surprised how dry the trails were given all the recent rain. I'll be here again.

very enjoyable

Great trails. They do a great job maintaining. Easy trail to run. Pretty flat.

Wide well maintained trail. Good variation in topography. Bike trails look interesting but not too difficult. I will hike these trails again. Good for shorter hike.

nice trail... When you get off the mowed prairie trails.

Easy wide grassy trail around an inaccessible pond. Lots of pastures and sun until the Old Dam trail, which was beautiful. Lovely nature center.

I've only done this trail on horseback, and I loved it! Gorgeous to do at sunset & even has a great stretch to canter!

Trail marked well, different levels of difficulty and terrain, and overall enjoyable hike.

This is a pretty good trail. You will most likely see animals.

Great day trip with my dog. Plenty of route options while you're on the trail to shorten or extend your hike. Ate lunch in the "picnic area" after

Multiple trails to explore. Low traffic early. Good trail signs. 5 miles hiked.

Beautiful park with nice trails. The waterside location makes it especially appealing to the person who appreciates nature and generally there are different species of animals to view.
