Just a few miles north of the quaint village of Clarkston, Oakland County maintains more than 1,200 acres of park around Crooked and Upper Bushman Lakes. The park is defined by its glacial features—rolling moraines and low outwash plains—and the wetlands here are the headwaters of the Clinton River. Begin the hike near the nature center, and follow the trail through the woods to some of the highest points in the area.
