Kensington Metropark Trails

More than 1,200 acres of water are nestled among the rolling, wooded hills of Kensington Metropark. Part of this park is highly developed and highly used, but the nature study area has been tailored for wildlife viewing. There are seven hiking trails that radiate from the nature center throughout the wetlands, forests, and fields on the site. The Chickadee Loop (1 mile) and Fox Trail (1/2 mile) are the most rustic of the trails. A golf course provides cross-country skiing in winter. This trail also runs near an osprey "hacking tower," where 23 osprey chicks were released from 1998 to 2002. If you like to see fish, the carp at Kensington are usually very easy to see from the lakeshore near the Nature Center and the boardwalk along Wildwing Trail. Kensington is also home to over 300 kinds of wildflowers.
