Proud Lake State Recreation Area Professional Review and Guide

"This loop at Proud Lake State Recreation Area follows the Huron River, crosses the river next to Proud Lake, and then explores the woods northwest of the lake. On the return is an extensive boardwalk through a dense river marsh. The trails are semirugged, and the woods will give you that deep sense of solitude, even when you pass the occasional day campers on the trail.

The Huron River pours out of the eponymous Proud Lake at the east end of the park and flows many miles through a chain of
lakes before emptying a short distance from Kensington Metropark at the west end. Less than 9 miles away, as the crow flies, the Huron River wells up from the ground and is little more than a trickle."
