Galien River County Park
With the generous assistance of the Pokagon Fund and the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund, Phase 1 improvements were completed in 2014. Highlights of these improvements include a 300' Canopy Walkway that leads to a 60' high Marsh Overlook Tower and a 600' long Marsh Boardwalk that leads to River Viewing and Fishing Platform. Both of these major features are accessible via hard surfaced, barrier free hiking trails. Galien River County Park is a great location for casual hiking with frequent stops to enjoy the views. For the best wildlife viewing opportunities, visit the park in the early morning or evening.
