    Like many families with at-risk members, our family has taken to spending a lot of time outside during this COVID-19 quarantine to keep busy while still social distancing. This May we went to the Glover rustic lodge for a day and night to explore the woods and have time away from the house. But, you don’t need a lodge to get out and explore nature. One of the places that my family of four (and our dog) explored this May was the Rogue River trails in Belmont, Michigan. We loved it!

    The Rogue River Hiking Trail is part of the very large Rogue River Park that is at the head of the White Pine Biking Trail. The 116-acre park offers many attractions, but with most of the playground equipment closed and wanting to keep to social distancing, we decided to keep to nature’s playground - the woods! The Rogue River hiking trail is 1.25 miles long, but offers hours of hiking and exploring with its many small trails that go off from the main trail. We decided we needed adventure and chose to take some of the smaller paths leading through woods, small dunes, and over small creeks that we had to jump stones to cross. There were many different kinds of plants that the boys had never seen before, rocks to cram into pockets and all sorts of birds to watch.

    When we got to the main path we came upon the DNR’s minnow ponds where thousands of frogs and toads filled the air with their croaks and ribbits! It was quite amazing to see so many all in one place, the water teeming with life. We stopped on the other side of the pond that wasn’t so populated by amphibians and my husband taught our son Otto how to skip rocks. After a few tries, he did it! We also saw several turtles sunning on logs and the man-made pallet habitats and snakes throughout the tall grass and wooded areas, but we didn’t get as close to those! In one part of the path, there were many fallen trees that our sons climbed across and under. Throughout the trails, there were informational plaques placed to give hikers information about the area's special plants and animals as well as the nature of the river itself. When we reached the Rogue, we were able to walk right alongside it using the small trails. After over an hour of exploring through the woods on a hot day, our boys were tuckered out from their adventure and we made our way back with the help of the maps along the paths.

    This time of quarantine has made us creative to get out and explore nature. Michigan is rich with trails and nature centers for everyone to explore while still maintaining social distancing. Rogue River trail was beautiful and we can’t wait to try it again and explore more trails near us! We might even bring a nature scavenger hunt next time!

    Coming once again to Blythfield Country Club June 13th-18th is the LPGA Meijer Classic. This event brings a rush of golf fans from all over the state and region to Belmont for a weekend of good times and great professional golf action. If you love golf as much as I do, this is a very fun event to attend.

    Cannonsburg Ski Area has been a wonderful staple in Belmont for skiing right here in Grand Rapids. I've skied there for years and it's a top-notch place for adults and kids. They frequently offer specials on lift tickets and offer many events throughout the season including bobsled racing, tubing, zip lines, and more. In the summer, you can find mountain bike courses and enjoyable outdoor events as well.

    Cannonsburg Ski Area was established in 1965. I have skied here many times. The ski runs are shorter than most of the hills that you can ski up north. It is a great place for beginners or those in the area that do not want to drive 3+ hours for a larger hill. The rates are also fairly inexpensive. They also have a good selection of jumps and rails for the trick skier or snowboarder.

  • The Belmont area, within the Rockford and Forest Hills School Districts, has many excellent communities to explore. Many amenities are close by such as golfing and the Rogue River Park area. This quaint community is close to the Rockford Dam and Downtown Rockford restaurants and shopping. The Cannonsburg Ski area and the nearby Townsend Park are perfect for family outings all year round. You'll find the Cascade and Ada areas close to the Thornapple River, Grand River, and nearby parks with convenient shopping and restaurants.
