Island Lake State Park Hike (NW of South Lyon)

  • Jun 22, 2014 · 11:00 AM

Brace yourself for a summer challenge: 9 miles on the west trail, rolling, deeply wooded, crossing the Huron River near our canoeing lunch stops. Bring lots of water, insect repellant and a trail snack. The leafy woods and river side trails will cut the summer heat and maybe bring bird sightings. Optional restaurant stop after.  Leader: Joe O’Dell. [masked]C.

Meet 11am: Southfield at Tel-12 Mall, S.E. corner of Telegraph and 12 Mile Rd.  Park facing Telegraph, S of the Marathon station.

This is a link for the park entrance and trailhead parking lot.

    Thanks, Joe, for a great hike. Good to meet everyone too. Could not have asked for a nicer day; sun, breezes, sand, and hills.

    Hello, this hike is a little challenging the trail is rocky on about half of it I would recommend good hiking shoes and bring snacks and extra water also it is about 9.5 miles, so if you want some good exercise and some nice outdoor scenery, come to the hike. If driving to the park on 696 west take exit 151 than take a right on Kensington Rd. southbound to Island Lake entrance which is just down the road on the left stay on the park road till you see trailhead parking lot entrance, enter and park by blue trail. You should try to be at the park by 11:30 - 11:40.

      We will meet at Tel Twelve parking lot at 11:00 am and hopefully we will leave there at 11:10 am and drive to the park. The hike will start when we all arrive at the park which should be about 11:30 am or a little after.

      I'm also coming first time at this park so I'm little confused for place where we are going to meet. I guess they charge 11 bucks for entries.

      If you could come to the Tel Twelve parking lot at 11:00 am we will car pool and split costs. I can take 3 myself.
