The Land Conservancy of West MI is having a Bow Walk Challenge, where you walk certain trails that have bows placed in them. The challenge is to find the bow, take a selfie with it, submit it, which enters your name into a contest for prizes. I decided to check out a new trail today, the Anderson Woods Nature Preserve. From my AllTrails.com review:
Take the left trail to start the loop (clockwise.) I of course went the other way and at one point followed an arrow that took me to the “upper loop.” Without this gps tracking I would have been lost. That said, there are helpful blue dots on the trees that confirm you are on a path. It is all flat and there was no wind today. You can hear cars on the road near part of the trail, which reassured me I wasnt going in too deep. There is a gun club nearby so I heard guns being fired. I have never seen so many wintergreen bushes full of berries before. I saw no signs and heard no sounds of wildlife except for a few random clouds of gnats, which seems so strange to see now. This is a nice easy trail to walk.
What the following route map doesn’t show is that only the part where there are double lines was on the “lower loop” of the trail. The rest is what I am calling the “upper loop.”
Happy Holidays to All!
