Pick up a map at the trailhead. There are very few markers on the trail.

One of my favorite trails near metro Detroit. Lakes and elevation changes make for an interesting hike.

Trail is well marked and maintained. Had a slight but working cell signal which allowed google maps to track me. Although I couldn’t get the All trails app to work while out there. Lots of areas that post private property signs which made picking a campsite a bit more tricky. Hiked five miles in and setup camp just east of Poplar ave. Was hoping to camp near Crofoot Lake but too many private property signs were littering the area so I doubled back.
Did this hike the second week of November and honestly I think it would have been a bit better to go a bit earlier in the season. Most of the leaves had already fallen from the trees. Still a beautiful hike though and will definitely be back.

Great for hiking in the lower peninsula. There is some moderate topography and was beautiful in the fall.

Great running conditions, brought our dogs for the loop. There's a good amount of mountain biking, so keep an eye up ahead of you and your animals close on leashes. The hills are rolling, beautiful landscape, super pretty in the fall! Definitely need to get back and mountain bike there.

Oh, and there are spigots for water and bathrooms!! Well marked trails. A+

I frequent this trail, because it really is an oasis of peace on the edge of suburbia. The many possible loops and hilly terrain keep it interesting. Don't worry about getting lost; each intersection is clearly marked with a map. It really only gets busy on weekend afternoons.
