Red Trail

Susan Creek Nature Preserve

Sitting right along busy US-31 between Charlevoix and Petoskey, this gem is hidden in plain sight. In the many times I've driven past it I rarely count more than one or two vehicles in the parking area, if any. Two trails combine to offer over 2 miles of hiking through a variety of habitats. After visiting, I was even more surprised this preserve doesn't attract more attention...
