Hickory Meadows

Owned and operated by the Joint Recreational Authority, this 112.5 acre parcel offers miles of unpaved hiking paths, which transition to XC skiing opportunities in the wintertime. The paths on this property wander over hills, across meadows, and through woodlands. The park is next door to the Hickory Hills Ski Area.

This park is one of three properties that was purchased via a millage overwhelmingly approved by Township and City voters in 2004, and is dedicated in perpetuity to viewshed preservation and passive recreational activities such as hiking and nature watching.

Access to the park is via Randolf Road or East Traverse Highway (M-72). On M-72, look for the big red barn on the south side of the road. Parking is available, but restrooms are not. Dogs are welcome but must be leashed.


Questions or comments regarding Hickory Meadows should be directed to Matt Cowall, Executive Director of the Joint Recreational Authority, at 231-929-3696.
