Map

This map shows facilities, parking areas, features and trails. Riley Trails is 300 acres of rolling terrain, beech-maple forest, pine plantations, a small lake and an extensive trail system located in Park Township. The property is enjoyed by hikers, cross-country skiers, mountain bikers and other outdoor enthusiasts. Riley Trails includes 40 acres that was formerly the Southwest Ottawa County Landfill. The landfill cap is closed to the public to protect the cap from damage and because of potentially harmful methane gas venting through the pipes. Since the landfill has been closed and capped for several decades, the gas levels are significantly reduced. The landfill area remains closed to the public, however, until gas emissions are studied and determined to be at safe levels. In the future, the Parks hopes to open the hill to the public for trails, overlooks and sledding.

Dog Policy

  • Dogs are required to be leashed (10’ max) and under control at all times.
  • Dogs are not permitted in park buildings, restrooms, picnic shelters, off-trail, or as posted.
  • Owners must clean up after their pet and dispose of waste in a trash receptacle.
  • Leader dogs for persons with disabilities are permitted in all areas at any time.
  • Recognizing that most dogs enjoy running and playing freely, many Ottawa County Open Space Lands allow dogs year-round off leash.
