Enjoy well groomed nature trails, well preserved wooden board walks, the amazing Huron River, and lovely wilderness hiking. Come one, come all. Wheelchairs move easily on the board walks.

Picked up the trail in Dexter. We went for a run but would have come back on bikes if we had another day in the area.

My friend lives across the street and this place has a somewhat small bike trail, about 3 1/2 miles long and it is great.

Dexter-Huron is one of the smaller metroparks, but is a very pretty spot along the Huron River for picnics, fishing, canoe rides, walks/hikes, etc.

As I stated this is a very fine park. They have lots of things for the kids to enjoy. They have a spectacular 4th of July fireworks display. You can really enjoy wild life, lots of deer, rabbets, pheasants and lots of squirrels. If you like the water they have some beautiful locations along the Huron River.
