Lake Erie Metropark Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Transitional areas—like the fuzzy boundary between a bog and an upland forest— are particularly fascinating to naturalists. Lake Erie Metropark straddles such a transitional area and features two hikes that together connect the shore of Lake Erie with the marshlands that once dominated the entire length of this end of the lake. This is a great hike for those who value the less-appreciated aspects of our local environment.
Lake Erie Metropark has a lot going for it, even when compared with other parks in the metropark system. In the southern half of the park you will find an eighteen-hole golf course, marina, and fishing decks. The northern half features a nature center, picnic areas, and a wave pool. Throughout the park, paddlers will find a number of boat launches and some of the best canoeing and kayaking in southeast Michigan."
