BIRGE / MERTAUGH / NYE / NATURE PRESERVE COMPLEXES

Hessel, Mackinac County

Hiking Trails | Snowshoeing Trails | Nordic (XC) Skiing

There are three parking areas and three different trails. The northerly parking area provides access to a 2-mile long trail that traces a historic roadbed and then ventures into the forest. This is often groomed in the winter by a local volunteer. Further to the south, a quarter-mile trail and boardwalk lead to the Loon Lake viewing platform. The Mertaugh Addition parking area is on the Lake Huron side and has a bench overlooking Mismer Bay. And the third trail to Search Bay is available from the most southerly parking.
