Without a doubt one of the most stunning forests in the area, the Bird Hills rise up 200 feet from the Huron River below. The forest is a mix of maple, poplar, oak, ash, and other hardwoods. The trees reach arrow straight to a high canopy, allowing hikers an incredible view of the terrain in all directions. Rustic log benches, ancient oak on hilltops, trails winding after thin streams all combine to give these woods a rich primeval feel.
