Wind was strong so the waves were fun. Other wise simple hike.

Shhh don't tell anybody about this Paradise

A little bit of everything for everyone. Always a fun time at Pontiac lake

The main loop is very easy as it is a road, but it is fun once you venture off into the side trails. I enjoy walking along the cliff trail which is more difficult, but well worth it to see the lake. Only downside is how crowded some spots can be during the summer.

A really fun trail! I enjoy the challenge of climbing some of the hills and steep areas. This is also a great trail to check out in the early winter!

This is a fantastic trail with lots of scenery. I can’t believe there were no reviews as this is a great place to hike or bike. Another benefit, during the warmer months, is there is a great kayak launch. You can kayak all the way to Lake Michigan.
We highly recommend this trail for a refreshing and relaxing hike, it is all flat.

Currently, the paths are really icy. Watch your step. Quiet, with no one else around on a Sunday morning.

Good for hiking and xcountry skiing. Muddy in a few areas after rains or snow melt.

Easy trail, really beautiful

on Oak Ridge Trail

We hiked Oak Ridge Trail at Fenner on a warm Winter morning. This loop is nice and quick. We walked through some trees as well as a few open spaces. It was a great way to start the day!

Hiked from Discovery Center to N. Territorial. Lots of elevation and demands endurance. Hiked it with a buddy in wet snow. Definitely pounded my legs.

on Tamarak Trail

Tamarak Trail at Fenner Nature Center is great! This was my first time on the trail and despite the snow, the trail was easy enough that my 12 year old daughter and 7 month old puppy managed it just fine. The trail is well marked so there was no fear of getting lost. We saw some beautiful blue birds and a deer on this gorgeous winter day. Can't wait to go back!

a great trail system for beauty and walking my lab. Kumar. he's a big sweetie!

Love this trail for snowshoeing. The hills give you a little challenge. The river is so beautiful and peaceful

By far favorite in kzoo

Worth every mosquito bite, leach bite and mud pool crossing. 5 kids and I had a great 3 days backpacking across the island and ended with 3 days of kayaking and boating from the lodge. Definitely bring your water filter, mosquito netting, and some hiking poles for the mud. Captain Bill was a gem.

This is a great place no matter what time of year you visit. Just the other day I saw several people enjoying a hike with snowshoes, and in the summer its a perfect place for a walk or run and that great view of Lake Michigan from Old Baldy. The trip down Old Baldy is always a fun one, but even those in decent shape will take some time and effort to get back up to the top, and the beach below is rockier than more easily accessible areas to the north.

One of the best trails in the area without a doubt. There are two awesome overlooks, and the trail leads right to the beach, which is mostly free from nearby development for miles in each direction.

It's not the most scenic trails, as you spend most of your time winding through forests that block any overlooks of the surrounding land, but it's easy to follow. The hills and curves make for a challenging trail run, but watch out for mountain bikers, as there is only room on the trail for single file.
