Pickerel Lake Park (6001 Ramsdell Road NE Cannonsburg, MI 49317)
was our first stop of the day, 46 degrees- sunshine, blue sky.
Michigan has been having wonderful autumn weather.
Pickerel Lake Park is a favorite in this area (just NE of Grand Rapids Michigan) because of the interesting trails. Larch Swamp trail, Sandy Knoll trail, woodland trails, and the main trail which circles the lake for an easy
1.9 mile walk. You can cross country ski here, or fish from the docks.
