Hiking Excursion: Indian Springs Metropark

These photos were captured back in May 2021.

Indian springs Metro Park is located in White Lake Michigan and is about an hours drive from downtown Detroit. The park encompasses over 2215 acres of land most of which is in the woods.

Overall I was quite impressed with the trails here at this park. Although I should point it that it is recommend that you stick to the main trail as Indian Springs Metropark is home to the only poisonous snake native to Michigan. It’s rather uncommon to see them in the wild as this rattler tends to be shy and actively avoids humans when possible. It’s usually a good idea to avoid walking in tall grass and if you are hiking you should ideally be wearing long pants and shoes to help prevent snake bites.
