trails at bertha brock park - ionia

trail mapNot all scenic trails are way up north. This park has excellent hiking and skiing trails and is just a few miles outside the Terrific Town of Ionia, Michigan. On a scale of 1 - 10, I have to give the scenery a good solid 10, and this is one of my favorite spots for a 20 minute vacation".

You can pull off the road, M-21, park and be wandering along a trout stream in only a matter of minutes. Fully refreshed you can be back on the road 20 minutes later or decide to linger a bit longer and have your lunch among the trees.

The beautiful and historic Palmer Lodge is one of the special treasures that grace this park. There are three picturesque stone bridges, wooded picnic areas along the stream and four miles of hiking trails.
