Overview
Penosha is a 4.86 mile one way hike with 563 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 15 miles north-northwest of Ann Arbor Michigan. The trailhead is car accessible. May and October are the best months to enjoy this hike.


Glaciers were responsible for the moraines, steep-sided kettles. Penosha is the Chippewa word for long. At under 5 miles this is a pleasant walk through a hardwood forest of maple, hickory, and oak. This hike is almost entirely under the tree canopy, making it a good summer choice. The fall colors would be spectacular back here.
