Construction of natural areas accessibility improvements as part of a Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund grant at Highland Oaks County Park is expected to be completed by Spring 2014. Improvements include the development of universally accessible boardwalks, trails and a fishing dock. See Park Trail Map
for reference; new trails include Spring Lake Trail and Black Oak Barren Trail.
In addition, a second parking lot/park entrance has been constructed off of Milford Road, south of the original parking lot, to connect to the new trail. This new parking lot will not accommodate equestrian trailer parking. Equestrian trailers are allowed only in the northern parking lot.
