You will find the headwaters of several important rivers in north Oakland County. The Huron River, which eventually empties into Lake Erie south of Detroit, springs up from the wetlands in Indian Springs Metropark. In early spring the woods around the park’s nature trails are blanketed with skunk cabbage, one of the most interesting of our wetland plants. Later in April and May, the woods are splashed with spring ephemerals.
