Foot Trail

Maybury State Park

Maybury State Park sits in the northwest corner of Michigan's most populous county, Wayne County. There is no camping within the park, just a network of some 12-miles of trails. We stopped by the park so I could check off another county highpoint. Due to the fact that it was barely 20-degrees and windy we didn't spend much time exploring but we did end up burning the better part of an hour...

    Hi Dan, I found your post from summitpost as Maybury being the highest elevation in Wayne county. I am a novice hiker and training for a grand canyon hike and need 5000 feet elevation gain. When you say that the elevation is 950' does that mean if I walk maybury I will gain approx 900' elevation? Or is the gain much less? I am limited to southern michigan until end of August when I will head to Northern Michigan (where I grew up). Any pointers? Thanks, Karen May
