Short of hauling a canoe to the park (or renting one from the livery), there’s no better way to explore the Huron River at Island Lake State Recreation Area than to hike the 6-mile Yellow Loop. As it passes through mixed hardwood forest, the trail crosses the river twice and offers both scenic overlooks and places to stop and dangle your feet.
