Seems like my favorite places have been overrun with people the past 40 years. So I would like you to avoid this place at all cost. There's nothing here but amazing bonsai, hosta gardens, acres of unique tree species, trails, a beautiful drive, a lake, and flowers, flowers, flowers... go to Ann Arbor instead.

Lovely serene gardens. You can drive slowly through the narrow but maintained road with woodland, meadow and lake views. There are places to park and well marked hiking trails for the more adventuresome. I particularly enjoyed the hosta and conifer gardens with unusual specimens. Thank you Michigan State University for sharing this beautiful treasure.

Hidden Lake Garden's is a wonderful nature walk, and area. It has a wonderful array of trees, plants, flowers and gardens. It's amazing in the summer, spring, and fall. And isn't half bad in the winter either. Great price perfect for families.

This is a very pretty place for a day trip. Nice walking venues and if you like hosta plants there is a nice shady trail. Very peaceful. There is also a gift shop with some unique gifts.

The Spring Bulb Show at Hidden Lake Gardens is an annual tradition for our family. As the end of winter nears, it's always nice to smell the sweet scents of hyacinths and see all of the lovely colors of tulips and daffodils, to a lovely background of classical music and spring decorations. Then we take a walk in the newly... More

For a lovely change of pace take a walk through the Hidden Lake Gardens. If it is cool outside you can fit in the conservatory. There are miles of groomed trails with many, many types of trees and plants to see. Plenty of wildlife too.

Great trails to ride through on bike, car, or motorcycle. Excellent trails for hiking and x-country skiing. Cool events and festivals for kids and young at heart. Cool classes on horticulture, landscaping, and nature-watching. I feel lucky they are close to us, but people travel fir miles just to motorcycle through the trails.
