West Bloomfield Woods Nature Preserve Professional Reviews and Guides
"West Bloomfield Woods is 162 acres of prime real estate in the heart of the ’burbs set aside for the preservation of nature. From upland forest to wetlands, from the chirp of spring peepers to nesting great blue herons, the preserve offers an amazing escape from the suburban environment that surrounds it on all sides."
--Matt Forster, Best Hikes Near Detroit and Ann Arbor (Falcon Guides).
"The former right-of-way of an early Michigan railroad today is a favorite recreation path stretching from the West Bloomfield Woods Nature Preserve to Sylvan Manor Park. Along its 4.3-mile route, the gentle paved trail passes through wetlands and thin woodlands and around lakes. Interpretive signs explain various habitats. While the trail skirts subdivisions and weaves near some busy intersections, it remains a pleasant walk, especially in the spring and fall."
--Greg Tasker, Five-Star Trails: Ann Arbor and Detroit (Menasha Ridge Press).
