I lived here during my high school years. I think that many visitors to the Traverce City area are not aware of some of the lesser know attractions, beyond the Sand Dunes or Downtown Traverse City. There are some nice lakes and trails in this area.

North Skegemog Nature Preserve

This preserve is located at the northwestern tip of Skegemog Lake, just north of the Elk/Skegemog narrows and is best viewed by boat. The closest public launch sites are Whitewater Township Park on Elk Lake and the MDNR launch site on Lake Skegemog. To get to Whitewater Township Park from Traverse City, take U.S. 31 N. to Acme. In Acme, turn right (east) on M-72. Take M-72 to Williamsburg and turn left on Elk Lake Rd. (605). Follow Elk Lake Rd. to Park Rd. and turn right. The park and boat launch are at the end of Park Rd. To get to the MDNR launch site, take M-72 east from Acme. Turn left on Baggs Rd. At the end of Baggs Rd. turn left on Lakeside Terrace.

Grass River Natural Area

The Grass River Natural Area is about 18 miles from Williamsburg, going towards Bellaire. I just discovered this place recently. Here is some information from Fishweb.com.

"Before Grass River runs into Clam Lake it starts to widen out and run west. The area on the south bank is The Grass River Natural Area with a small access dock. There are a series of marked trails through the wetlands with boardwalks and overlook platforms like the one shown top left. For more about this area you can go the Grass River Natural Area Web Site.
