Albion Hills Loop (Palgrave)
What better way to welcome spring than to take a hike through one of our many gorgeous conservation areas.
This loop follows a sandy path through lovely woods, ponds and wetlands in Albion Hills Conservation Park. The farther you go, the more deeply you travel into nature, solitude and peace. Look for ephemeral flowers in April, May and June, when they like to show off. Also watch for cyclists using the park’s trails.
