Protected & managed by the Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy, owned by the State of Michigan.

Once slated for subdivision, this amazing place is now a jewel for all to enjoy. Known for its beautiful, rustic bridges, this enchanting property has more than a mile of frontage on the Rapid River. A trail and boardwalk wander through cedar trees and over bridges spanning the Rapid River, which is braided into several channels here. The remains of a sawmill built in 1882 can still be seen when crossing the first three bridges. Despite its name, only four bridges exist today.
