It’s almost spring time, which means you’ll finally be able to kick those winter time blues and hit the trails, the walking trials. There are several trail areas in Lansing so you will never run out of places to explore.
Riverbend Nature Area - Holt, MI
This park is great for everyone; it is a host of an array of different activities from hiking, to biking, to canoeing and cross country skiing. The terrain changes from mature forests, to open fields, a creek and everything in between. Another great thing about Riverbend Nature Area is that it is open all year long.
Lake Lansing Park – South – Haslett, MI
Once an amusement park Lake Lansing South has been reinvented into a recreational facility. It is home to Lansing’s largest body of water, 30 acres of trike trails, open fields and volleyball courts to name a few.
Fitzgerald Park – Grand Ledge, MI
This park is located on the banks of the Grand River, it is 78 acres of new adventures. There are 3 miles of trails to walk, hike and climb, basketball and volleyball courts, cross country skiing, sledding, disc golf and canoeing. Fitzgerald Park is also open all year as well.
Lincoln Brick Park – Grand Ledge, MI
This park was once an old brick making factory that has since burnt down, although you can find the remains on your walks they have transformed this factory into 90 acres of trails, swimming, cross county skiing and fishing. Feel free to visit this park all year long as well.
Northern Tail Dog Park – East Lansing, MI
This park is for you and your best friend, with a double fenced in 2 acre field with doggy stations strategically placed all around you can go out and hit the trails without leaving for best bud behind. It is a park that legally allows you to have your dog unleashed in a public place, so treat yourself and your dog to a fun filled day of frisbee or catch.
There are an abundance of places to visit, so get up off the couch and explore a new territory, take in everything Lansing has to offer and find your new trail place!
