A Fun Time Awaits at Hawk Woods

Posted by – Shawn Keenan, Water Resources Coordinator

Tucked away in the northeast part of the City, along Bald Mountain Road, is one of Auburn Hills’ well hidden jewels … the E. Dale Fisk Hawk Woods Nature Center.

Hawk Woods, as it’s often referred to, offers visitors endless opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors both day and night.  Opened year around, the park offers a wide array of amenities including miles of groomed nature trails, a marsh boardwalk, a covered picnic shelter, a heated restroom/shower facility, and a two-story log cabin lodge with six new overnight camping cabins.

Looking for a reason to visit this beautiful place?  Why not attend the City’s 15th Annual Fall Festival in the Woods on Saturday, October 13th  from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Nature Center.  No doubt, it will be a great time for the entire family to enjoy.

There will be an assortment of activities and things to do.  In addition to the ever popular hay rides, is the farm animals you can pet and feed, the live music by Michigan’s own Blue Water Ramblers, and for those with a creative touch pumpkin carving.

Farm Boy will also have pumpkins for sale, ranging in price from $4-$12.

So, check it out.  Hey, maybe you’ll bump into a friend or neighbor in the free cider and donut line.
