Aspen Park – Commerce Boulevard
Aspen Park is a year-round park featuring 100 acres of woods, paved and unpaved trails, tennis courts and some of the best scenery in Northern Michigan. Aspen Park, with its nearly two miles of paved trails, is used in the summer by bikers, hikers, and skaters enjoying the natural wonders of this gently rolling wooded terrain. In the winter, expertly groomed cross-country ski trails that range in degree of difficulty from beginner to intermediate provide the cross-country ski enthusiast an opportunity to journey through both hilly and wooded areas with two miles of trails lighted for night skiing.
It is common to see plentiful wildlife throughout Aspen Park.
Paved parking is available at the park entrance. Other amenities include tennis courts, picnic tables, and benches.
The Northern Michigan Chapter of the Michigan Mountain Bike Association constructed the Aspen Park Mountain Bike Trail, which consists of over 6.0 miles of beginner to intermediate level singletrack, within Aspen Park. The singletrack winds through stands of pine, hemlock, and maple and is a fast trail with hill climbs and switchbacks.
Aspen Park is open everyday (including weekends and holidays) from 6:00 am to 11:00 pm. Trail lights are on daily from 6:00 am until 8:00 am and then again from 5:00 pm until 11:00 pm.
