The Harbor Country Hikers will be visiting Berrien County's Hiking Trails again this fall. With Park Naturalists leading the way, "The Hikers" will be visiting three Berrien County Parks to see the fall colors change and talk about the wildlife prepping for winter. We will begin our first adventure at the Love Creek Nature Center and hike through what Lamanda considers the nicest trails of the park.
Besides the Nature Center, mountain bike and well-groomed cross country ski trails and winter fat-tire bike trails (ski and bike rentals available), the natural features of this park include around 200 acres of meadows, mature forests, marshes and creek.
HCH recently purchased an All-Terrain Rollator which may be reserved for use on our hikes. Reservations are made by Emailing firstname.lastname@example.org on a first-come first-served basis. This hike will be a little rough for the AT Rollator.
Wear long pants (preferably tucked-in), a sun hat, sturdy shoes or boots and insect repellent and bring plenty of water. Depending on the weather, there may be some damp or muddy areas. HCH hikers observe federal and state guidelines so mask wearing is optional.
