Reach for the Sky: Treetop Canopy Walk

Coming in Spring 2023! Get a sneak peek: MSU's Hidden Lake Gardens hopes to be found with new canopy walk

Funded through our Reach For The Sky initiative, this at-tree-level walk allows visitors to see a unique perspective of Hidden Lake Gardens. 

This one-of-a-kind contemporary attraction will appeal to both local residents and tourists while contributing to the cultural setting of the Lenawee, Jackson, Hillsdale and Washtenaw County communities. The project is designed to provide significant opportunities for education, outreach, research, visitor experience, tourism and economic development. 

Hiking Trails

In addition to more than 6 miles of one-way paved drives, there are 12 miles of hiking trails to allow the visitor a closer look at the beauty that the Gardens provides.
