“A beautiful escape from the city right in your backyard. This trail will warm your heart with its wildlife and views.”— Rouge Park
Family Friendly This trail is perfect for families! The trail is wide enough for two people to hike side by side. There are many opportunities to teach children about different kinds of wildlife.
The path is cut through grass and is well maintained. It's all meadow and prairie land with scenic views that make you forget you're in a big city. Along the entire trail, you'll come across multiple kinds of beautiful butterflies and birds which makes this a great place for nature photography. Be sure to add on the Butterfly Garden Trail for an added bonus. There is plenty of parking available on site.
The trailhead for this trail sits on an intersection where the other trails begin, the Stone Bridge Nature Trail and Rouge Park Mountain Bike and Hiking Hybrid Trail, each offering different experiences and sights to see.
