Fall Colors in Macomb County

October 19, 2012

One of the very best places to see Fall colors in Macomb county is at Wolcott Mill Metro Park. The reason I say that, is because you also get the chance to experience some History and Nature rolled together at the Park.

Wolcott Mill is based around an old restored Mill on the Clinton river. The Mill area has a feel to it that few places have. Just down the road from the Mill is a working Farm, with animals and critters of all sort.

The Mother Earth Trail around the Mill, will take you to the old Dam. From there, the back-up of the river, caused by the Dam, created many twists and turns in the river, as well as worn in cliffs along the river banks. Some wonderful scenes here.

Some of the local trees date back over 100 years and produce some very splendid colors. There is so much to do and see at the Park. Recently added Campsites and Horse Trails have expanded the park to reach for miles, south of the Mill itself. Just driving the old gravel, Farm roads around the Park is a great Fall colors experience.
