Indian Springs Metropark: Hike-Bike Trail
You can view portions of the Huron Swamp and the woods of Indian Springs by hiking, skating or pedaling the park’s paved Hike-Bike Trail. The trail is a 5-mile asphalt ribbon that extends from the Meadowlark Picnic Area to a small loop in the northeast corner of the park. The roundtrip from the picnic area is an 8-mile walk or ride.
For the most part the trial is level and easy with exception one long hill near the beginning. Since the majority of it is through a wooded/wetland area, the best time of year for the Hike-Bike Trail is either late spring, when there is a profusion of wildflowers, or in the fall, when the leaves of the maple and oak that forest much of the area, turn shades of autumn. During late June and early July, Indian Springs usually has more than its share of mosquitoes and deerflies.
