Make sure to put on your bug spray 🤣, biking is great, the rocks are very flat, the water is very shallow, we did not see any wildlife, but a great place.

We have been a few times since moving to the area, very beautiful winter or summer! Wide main path with paths that go off of them. Beautiful trees and ponds.

This place has some of the best walking/biking trails you'll find. There's a ridge with trails up and along it that are great for mountain biking or hiking if you're into that, and a main road and a little less wild trails if you're looking...More

This is a gorgeous park/conservation area. I used to walk my dog here whenever I got the chance and we saw all kinds of wildlife. Deer, porcupines, huge turtles, snakes, fish, frogs and water fowl. A beautiful little piece of nature!

We had a great walk, take note no one sands the trail...icy but fun. It was a great family get together instead of sitting and eating.

Only a 30 minute drive from Belleville, this outdoor wonderland has several different trails for your skiing or hiking pleasure. Needs a new map at the front gate and the trails need to be better marked.

I love all the different areas to walk and explore. Great having the river nearby to cool off in during the summer. If you love parks give Vanderwater a try!
