Miller Woods Trail

Miller Woods Trail is one of my favorites! It’s off of Lake Street in Miller. Simply take Highway 12 to Lake and then head towards the beach. There is a small parking lot on your left at the Paul H. Douglas Environmental Education Center. The trail consists of a short “loop trail” and then a longer trail to the beach which is approximately 3.4 miles there/back. I would recommend the beach trail. I was surprised at the ponds, open dunes and oak savanna that I came across. There are some beautiful stops for photos and the ponds around the area are gorgeous. I look forward to going back to this trail when the leaves have changed more.
