Stage Nature Center has been managed by the Troy Nature Society since 2010. This 100 acre preserve is home to over 20 resident deer, a wide range of Michigan native plants, rolling meadows, forest trails, boardwalks over marshlands and the Rouge River, which rolls though the grounds.

  • My favorite place to walk near home. Has great nature trails. You can see deer, turkey and even bats here in the evening. The hiking trails have multiple biomes all within a slow, hour or so long walk through the woods. Fun to bring kids or partner or both. Generally pretty quiet, passing just a few people.

  • Just an amazing place to stroll and enjoy deep woods, right in the middle of a city! You can see a lot of wildlife and birds. Can easily spend 2-3 hrs exploring tje trails.
