How much is admission and how far is it to the sawmill?
Late fall is one of the best times to hike in northern MI. With no leaves in the trees you can really appreciate the hills and gullies that make up our area. Since hunting's prohibited at the Groen preserve, this is also a safe place to hike during hunting season.

I flushed a massive buck while I was there earlier this morning. I jumped about half-as-high as he did on his first leap from where he was bedded down.
Thank you to everyone who came out and hiked with us this past Saturday at the Louis M. Groen Nature Preserve. We had a blast!
Only 2 more days until our free snowshoe hike at the Louis M. Groen Nature Preserve. Call today to reserve your snowshoes at 989-731-0573.

Looking forward to seeing you there.
We are getting closer to our snowshoe hike coming up this Saturday at 10:00am at the Louis M. Groen Nature Preserve.

Hope to see you there!
