“Stone Bridge Nature Trail is located within Rouge Park, a beautiful escape to nature without leaving the city.”— Rouge Park
The Stone Bridge Nature Trail is named after a very old bridge that the trail crosses over. A seasonal creek runs underneath the bridge called "Al's Creek," named after a volunteer who actively monitors and cares for the creek.
There are a couple places where the trail has stairs made from natural resources from the woods, but the terrain is still easy to run. Note that the slope can be slippery when wet.
This trail offers multiple opportunities for photography. The bridge, stairs, and the Rouge River are prime spots to get beautiful photos.
While running this trail, you may see deer muskrat, great blue herons, wood ducks, and maybe even a coyote if you are lucky!
Stone Bridge Nature Trail is truly a hidden escape to the beautiful outdoors right in your backyard without having to leave the city.
