West Bloomfield Woods Nature Preserve Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Tucked away off a busy stretch of Pontiac Trail in northern Oakland County, the West Bloomfield Woods Nature Preserve offers a tranquil escape from the surrounding suburbia. The gentle 2.5-mile trail meanders through mature woods of oaks, hickory, and wild dogwoods and around wetlands, swamps, ponds, and a stretch of the Franklin River (a branch of the Rouge River). Wild and domestic flowers—wild geraniums, marsh marigolds, and trilliums—flood the woodland floor in the spring."
