Protected, owned and managed by the Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy.

The former Weiss family homestead

This stunning new (as of 2021) preserve offers scenic trails through mature hardwoods and beautiful ravines. At 290 acres, there is much to explore. Aside from its passive recreational benefits, this preserve is of tremendous importance in terms of wildlife habitat, scenic views and water quality in the Torch River (and entire lower Chain of Lakes watershed).

To learn more about the protection of this special place (and a neighboring conservation easement) read the Ribbon of Protection chapter in our Campaign for Generations publication.


Certain types of hunting are allowed in accordance with state regulations:

  • Deer hunting; all forms.
  • Small game, waterfowl and turkey hunting. When waterfowl hunting, GTRLC prohibits targeting of coots, common moorhens/gallinules and rail species.
  • No trapping
