McCune Nature Preserve Hike Route Map

McCune Nature Preserve

This pretty little preserve is located not far from my previous home east of Petoskey off Maxwell Road for those familiar with the area. The preserve encompasses 168 acres of hardwood forest, meadows with scotch pine, and lowland conifer swamps. There are some 2 miles of trail that wander the property offering a look into each of these communities...
