Explored one of the many trails available at the Midland City Forest just last weekend, the kids (5&9) had a great time on a 3.2 mile hike through the heavily wooded landscape. Plenty of people on horseback and some on mountain bike but the access to multiple trails made for plenty of room for everyone. Great outdoor fun!

We went for a boy scout event. It was very nice and the staff was very accomodating. I enjoy the forrest more during the winter months.

During the summer, I run here very often and the trails here never seem to bore me. Also, the chalet, toboggan, and sled hill are superb.

I have never been here any time other than the winter. That being said, if you're looking for an awesome sledding hill or want to experience the toboggan runs, this is the place to go! There's even a cute little Chalet on site where you can buy hot cocoa and snacks when you take a break from the outdoor activities.

Perfect place to get a run in or to walk the dog. Horses are welcome! There are also mountain bike obstacles and trails.

I've just gotten into mountain biking recently and this has been a great place for me to get started. There are some items I won't tackle yet. Midland is a very flat area and they do the best they can to create some elevation changes on these trails.

This is a great place for peaceful running with friends. Lots of well marked trails and wild life. Watch for horse dung on the wider paths but not on the single track bike trails. The city chalet is a wonderful place for an informal gathering

I've been coming here since being quite young. Whether it was to sled down the hills, go on the toboggan run, maybe ice skate a little... or even go to the haunted forest. One of the best ways to warm up during the cold months is to go into the cabin and drink a nice, hot cup of apple cider,... More

My dad goes to City Forest all the time. There are a few great bike trails — in addition to even more, less-curvy, walking trails.

I've been here several times. Mostly to walk with our dogs but I also did a trail ride a month ago. It's nice and relaxed.
