This little township park north of Rochester is easily overshadowed by nearby Addison Oaks. The two are so different; it’s like comparing apples and orchards. As a result, you can expect to have this short nature hike all to yourself. The simple 1.0-mile-long loop can be expanded to 3.0 miles by parking in the Romeo Road lot and making it a lollipop route. The village of Rochester enjoys a great balance. To the south is the best Metro Detroit has to offer—shopping, culture, etc. To the north you have the best of country living—a number of apple orchards, Addison Oaks county park, a couple state recreation areas, numerous nature areas, the Paint Creek Trail (which begins right in town), and the Stony Creek Metropark.
