Wandering Wednesday: Bear Creek Nature Park

Enjoy the view of the Bear Creek Marsh from the boardwalk.

The Bear Creek Nature park is located in Oakland township Michigan. It’s a smaller park as the area is about 107 acres of land.

What’s nice about this particular hiking area aching area is how clean it is! No litter anywhere on the trail, it was probably the most pristine hiking area I’ve been to in Michigan to date. The trails is also ADA accessible which is great for people who have issues with mobility and still wish to enjoy the outdoors.

While I was out hiking there were a few other hikers utilizing the trail which is enjoyable, nothing worse than being on a overly crowded trail in my opinion. After all, if i wanted to spend time with a bunch of people and not a ton of tress I’d probably go to the St. Vincent concert or something.

Fun Fact: Bear Creek Nature Park has an ice rink that sadly is not pictured here. I don’t recall the last time i went ice-skating but perhaps when winter does come I should give it a try once more.
