Hudson Mills Metropark

Hudson Mills Metropark is one of thirteen parks in the Huron Clinton Metroparks chain.  Situated on the Huron River, just north of Dexter, Michigan, it encompasses 1,549 acres, including an 18-hole golf course, two disk golf courses, soccer fields, picnic areas, a nature/activity center, and about 16km (10 miles) of trails, mostly paved, on both sides of the river.

The paved trails are popular with bikes and in-line skaters when not snow-covered, and are partially cleared in winter.  Other trails are groomed for cross-country skiing in winter.

With the park located on two levels, the unpaved trails begin in forest, and drop into floodplain along the river, giving you an uncommon opportunity to experience a large number of ecosystems with only a short hike.

While there, be sure to visit the Hudson Mills Rapids, one of only two remaining sets of rapids along the Huron River, and the ruins of the park’s namesake, the original Hudson Mill, on the west side of the rapids.
