Hemlock Crossings

posted March 24, 2017 by Moms in Tow (Kara)

If you have a frog lover (or nature lover), you have to get to Hemlock Crossings! 

Located just north of Holland, today we visited the "wetland" area where we were able to see dozens of frogs right from the boardwalk.

It is a paved trail and a short walk from the parking lot and visitor center, so easy access if you have strollers. The frogs should be around for a litle bit, but I was advised that on cooler days they are not quite as active. 

Check out how loud there were on the video on our Instagram / page!

Another reason we love visiting Hemlock crossings is the trails, with the bridge always being a kid favorite.

Although, once past the bridge, and most of the other trails are not so stroller friendly. 

The other bonus of Hemlock Crossings is the visitor center. There is a room where you can view and listen to birds and squirrels (although the feeders are down until August: although they had a great book on the table there that lets you listen to tons of birds!),

but in that room there are some great interactive and educational displays for kids.

There is also a space near the gift shop where kids can hide out in a tent and there are lots of great books to read.

The Hemlock Crossings is always on our rotation of free and fun things to do with the kids, as you can really go there during any kind of weather.

Learn more at their website, and make sure to note the hours for the visitor center : 

Tuesday - Saturday: 9:00am - 5:00pm
Sunday: 12:00pm - 5:00pm

Hemlock Crossings Address: 8115 West Olive Road . West Olive, MI 49460
