Waterloo Recreation Area

The Waterloo Recreation Area, with its 20,000+ acres, is a vast pristine area west of Ann Arbor filled with lakes and hiking trails, various campgrounds, fishing piers, boat launches, picnic shelters, bike paths and marshes. At its heart is the beautifully maintained Eddy Discovery Center where we all can learn about woodland life and habitats. We enjoyed the outdoor rock path with clusters of boulders pointing out those three categories we are all supposed to know--sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic. We enjoyed the real life displays of sandhill cranes, the beaver, and the foxes, but especially the see through active beehive! We hiked the Waterloo-Pinckney Trail out to Mill Lake in the early morning light. What a great way to start the official first day of summer ;}
