Fox Hill Trail


Location: Pound Ridge
Distance: 1.7 miles
Skill Level: easy
Elevation Gain: 100′
Type of Hike: loop
Trail Condition: trail, paved
Wow Factor: ends in a playground, pass nature center

How to get there: From 684, head east on 35.  Make a right on 121 and almost immediately make a left into the park.  Head to the gatehouse to pay and east along the main road.  Pass Michigan Rd on the right.  The next left is the parking lot.  You can’t see the playground from the lot.


Summary: From the parking lot, walk to the kiosk on the far end from the entrance.  Head down hill a bit and pick up the FH trail.  Large white markers lead the way and make it hard to get lost.

After a few minutes, you’ll make a right before the bridge to continue on FH, following the stream.  You’ll pass the playground.

At the next intersection, follow FH right again as it leads you uphill and away from the stream.

The white markers will lead you to a road.  Follow it down and hang a right on the main road.

Check out the nature center if its open.

Keep headed west down the hill back to the parking lot.

To get to the playground, follow the gravel road at the right side of the lot.  Head up the hill and into the woods.  There is a restroom and picnic tables.
