I love going to Hidden Lake Gardens! It is a pretty drive from Ann Arbor and is only about a half hour from Jackson through the Irish Hills. The gardens and conservatories are just delightful. There is a small very informative gift shop. But really for me it is the trees - such varieties and such loveliness. One could hike or drive about the whole day. Once I even took a nap on a quiet grassy slope in a fairly private corner when I was getting over chemo. It is only $3 per person. A hosta garden lives on one hill near the lake. Dogs on leashes are welcome, too. There are often special fun exhibits, or lanterns, or costumed scarecrows. Interesting unusual evergreens, hardwoods, fruit trees. Something new to discover every visit. A bonsai collection, too, just behind the conservatories.

If you live anywhere near here, and you haven't yet visited, you don't know what you are missing! This is a must-see garden for all near and far. I am a garden fanatic, and this is definitely worth the time. A wonderful place to walk and get lost (figuratively) in nature.

We were a week or two too early for fall colors. Really enjoyed the conservatory. It is small but had some plants that I had never seen before. Their collection of bonsai trees is outstanding.

Loved it!!!!! It is 755 acres that is maintained by the michigan state University. One drives thru it at a slow rate. Many places to pull over and walk about. I never knew there were so many different hostas ... I highly recommend it and one is able to take a picnic with them as there are places to enjoy such a thing.

Very nice gardens and natural spaces. Visited with the kids (8 and 11yrs) and their grandmother (67yrs). We tackled two of the shorter trails and had no issues with managing the hikes. Well marked and manicured. There are a number of longer trails available. Reasonable $5 admission. Nice conservatory with a collection of amazing bonsai. Would gladly visit again.
