My favorite thing is to take a canoe out on the river on a hot summer day. But the trail system is also amazing - this is a really special place tucked into the south end of Lake Bellaire.
Grass River Nature Center is a great stop for the whole family, but check times open as closed some winter months.The hiking trails are amazing both summer and winter and always open. Peaceful, quiet, bubbling river in all seasons, bird watching. Winter snowshoeing and cross country. It is a stress reliever to take some time there.
We spent the past two afternoons enjoying the trails. Yesterday snowshoeing and today cross country skiing. Nice trails designated for each activity. Very quiet, we did not see anyone else on the trails either day.
We have been here a few times. Even though we haven't seen any wildlife, we always have a nice hike on the grounds. It's a little off the beaten path, but not hard to get to.
Excellent place to take a hike, snowshoe, or cross country ski. The wood are peaceful, there are many birds to view and the paths are well groomed!

Nice nature center with very helpful staff. Trails are well maintained , be careful on Boardwalk since the walk can be slippery. Nice bird viewing area where you can sit 15 feet from feeder and the birds will give you a good close. Varied landscape with streams, bogs wetlands and hardwood forests.
Sneeks up on you but was a very quiet area. Surprised by the nice building they have and offer several classes and walks. Great place to observe nature.
