Our latest Mitten Hiking adventure was at Rogue River Park in Belmont, Michigan, less than 10 miles north of downtown Grand Rapids. We were greeted with a gray and misty morning (as most of our hikes tend to be) that has me really looking forward to the sunshiney days that hopefully lie ahead.
We were able to get about 3 miles out of this hike by doing multiple loops and taking a few side trails. It's quite flat and takes you along the banks of the Rogue River, through a fish hatchery, and gives you the option to link up with the White Pine Trail. With its close proximity to the city and easy trails, Rogue River Park would make a wonderful family-friendly hike!
