Hampton Township Nature Trail Description

The Hampton Township Nature Trail is a 2-mile gravel trail that begins at Finn Road Park winding through marshy areas, woods, skirts farm fields, and ending at a boat launch on Jones Road. Along the way you may encounter many species of birds including bald eagles, egrets, geese, and swans. There is an abrupt termination at Knight Road, but a short turn north will allow you to pick the trail immediately back up for the rest of your travels. For travelers interested in the Finn Road Campgrouds, activites available are a bath house, pavilion, handicap fishing pier, camping facilities with water, 30 amp electric & sewer, and a dump station for recreational vehicles.

Hampton Township Nature Trail Reviews

Pretty trail

This is an out and back trail (not a loop), roughly 2.5 miles long. There are trailheads at Jones and Finn Rd. The section from Knight to Jones is prettier. Nice and easy gravel trail. We saw rabbit, an egret, lots of frogs, and turtles.

First ride of the year

This a nice easy trail to ride. Well maintained, with parking at both ends of the trail. The trailhead at the end of Jones Rd. has Porta-Jon's. Along the way I saw Red Squirrels, a dozen Box Turtles and the occasional Crains.

Hampton Nature Trail

We access this trail at a junction point on Knight Road. It's a lovely trail along the way you can see red squirrels, chipmunks, turtles, lots of birds and maybe a deer.
