    I recently road this area, The South area was a little short and rocky . Glad I had GPS.Wear yellow in the fall,because I saw 3 hunters. Try a day when the range is not shooting , to noisy. Very pretty in the fall. The North area was a little scary for me. In the Blue and White loops there was 3 posts broken in a row. The woods were to heavy for my GPS, It might work without leaves.. Stay on the main path and get the map. Very pretty in the fall.

    Awesome trails, well marked and easy to navigate. I showed up and the attendant at the main office took time to get me my parking pass, indicate where I should park and what trails to go on - VERY helpful. The difficulty level is low, easy for even beginners to do with few steep inclines, some exposed roots but nothing extraordinary. The trails are in thick forest (during summer months) and get their fair number of mosquitoes. I recommend these trails for their relative closeness to the major SE Michigan cities, good maintenance and nice staff.
