Protected by The Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy, owned by Long Lake Township.
As of summer 2020, this recreation area is now home to a beautiful new universal access (UA) trail suitable for people of all ages and abilities! It starts from the main parking lot.
This 250 acre former girl scout property boasts nearly 9,000 feet of water frontage with 2,000 feet of frontage on Long Lake, an entire 20-acre lake within its boundary – Fern Lake – with 4,500 feet of shoreline, and roughly 2,400 feet on Page Lake. The balance of the property is a combination of mesic northern hardwood forest, fields and riparian wetlands providing a multitude of recreation opportunities including fishing, hiking, kite-flying, wildlife viewing, and more. The property currently has a network of marked and unmarked two-tracks and trails throughout with potential for further trail and infrastructure development.
Access to this property is via the parking area on Timbers Trail off N. Long Lake Rd only, please do not trespass. See the map below for directions.
