Reesor Way/Tanglewood Trail

Rouge National Urban Park

Please note: A section of the Reesor Way/Tanglewood Trail is closed until further notice. This closure is well marked on site and alternative trail options are available.

The Reesor Way trail provides two distinct experiences. The east section runs parallel to the Little Rouge River in a mix of established habitats, with excellent birding opportunities. The west section’s emerging forest and open sky recall the years of restoration that created Bob Hunter Memorial Park.

Explore microclimates first hand on the Tanglewood trail. Carved out from glacial activity, the Little Rouge River flood plain is in direct contrast to its spacious deciduous west slope and cedar dominated coniferous east slope.
