“The perfect escape from Grand Rapids for some peace and quiet, fresh air, and lots of green space to explore.”— Zander Göpfert
This lollipop-style loop run starts from the main parking area just east of the Recreation Core. It heads east on the paved Kent Trails: Millennium Park section past Heron Lake to head up and around on the Muskrat Trail to the natural surface trails through Heron Lake with a stop at one of the elevated observation decks where chances are good to spot waterfowl and other wildlife before heading back to the parking area.
At the next intersection, turn left onto the natural surface Trestle Trail before another left onto the Muskrat Trail. This section of the park is primarily wetlands where fewer visitors and more natural landscape provides shelter for lots of birds and wildlife. At the next intersection, turn left (west) to begin the return trip on a section shared by the Yellow Loop and Red Loop.
Finally, head past the Causeway trail to make another left onto the Heron Lake Trail. Here, you'll find the Observation Deck Spur, where a raised platform juts over the lake. As many locals know, this park and these vantage points looking west over the lakes are beautiful spots at sunset.
Take the Heron Lake Trail back to the west before retracing your steps on the Kent Trails: Millennium Park and brief connector up to the parking area.
