I live just south of Independence Oaks. The terrain out there is awesome. It doesn't seem like it belongs in S.E. Michigan. I wish they'd put a MTB trail in there.
It sucks they close at 5:30 or 6:00 during the week. I wonder if enough skiers expressed an interest if they would at least consider staying open late one night during the week.
Although it would probably be better for my health if I didn't try to ski the Ted Gray loop my first year
I was walking out at Independence Oaks once and a chick was climbing over a fence. She smiled and said, "This is where all the locals come in". I wonder if the part would turn a blind eye to late afternoon skiers as long as they parked outside the park.

I have found no need for anything more than that - certainly nothing as powerful as a MTB headlamp is needed. You may not need a lamp in open field type areas but you will most likely need it in the trees and it's generally just a good idea to have with you. I tend to switch mine on and off as I need it.
