Description: This trail goes through woods and around a small lake. There is a parallel/overlapping horse trail. There are no arrows or trail marking but it’s easy to follow.
Covering 80 acres, this park has several ecosystems – pond wetlands, low dunes, deep woods, and open meadow – and is rich in flora and fauna. You can fish in the pond and there are deer in the area.
FARview (not Fair-view) was the name of a stop on the interurban electric train line that ran between Holland and Saugatuck from 1899 to 1926. The small building in the parking lot is a refurbished interurban waiting room. When you walk under the power lines in the park you’re walking over what was once the Grand Rapids, Holland & Chicago (GRH&C) Railway bed!
