Let’s Take a Hike: Black River Preserve – 4 Miles
Since they a call for upper 30’s on Sunday, it will be a great day to hike. Let’s hike the Black River Preserve in South Haven. We’ll meet at the parking lot on 8th Ave (half mile west of 68th) at 1:00. Generally, an easy hike with only a couple of small hills. Trail will be snowy and wet so please wear proper foot gear. We will hike about 4 miles.
Dogs are welcome but must be kept on a 6-foot leash at all times. Dog waste must be packed out.
Black River Preserve’s deep ravines, beech-maple forests, streams, rolling uplands, and views of the big Black River provide the visitor with a wide variety of southwest Michigan habitats in which to hike, Dirt hiking trails are color-coded, with some hilly sections. There is one mile of frontage along the Black River and another combined mile of frontage on three tributary streams.
We are planning on going to 3 Blondes Brewery afterwards for a drink/bite.
I hope you can make it.
