Hudson Mills Metropark Professional Review and Guide

"When you want the getting there to be half the fun, consider the Acorn Trail at Hudson Mills. This low-key nature loop is located in north Washtenaw County, just north of Dexter on the Huron River. In summer there’s a lot going on along the river. In autumn the woods practically glow. And in any season the trip up Huron River Drive sets the mood for a great hike.

Beginning at Bird Hills Nature Area Hin Ann Arbor, the drive follows the river upstream, passing a handful of parks on the water along the way. Dexter-Huron Metropark, for example, is a small (122-acre) site with a great view of the water where you can rent canoes and kayaks for exploring by paddle. The drive also takes you through Dexter, a great little town for a lunch break, and ends several miles north at Hudson Mills Metropark."
