Highland State Recreation Area Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A simple 4.3-mile loop through Highland State Recreation Area is the perfect introduction to the “highlands” region of Oakland County, which is named for the moraines that dominate the landscape.

The trail skirts kettles and climbs moraines, passing through dense hardwood forest and some boardwalked marsh. The property once belonged to Edsel Ford, who built an estate on nearby Haven Hill as a retreat from life in the city."
