Finton Natural Area is part of a critical wildlife corridor that spans the tip of the Leelanau Peninsula, including Conservancy Natural Areas, Leelanau State Park, and private conservation easement land. This corridor of preserved lands shelters and feeds wildlife traveling from Northport Bay to Cathead Bay. Finton’s maple and beech forest forms a tight canopy, resulting in little ground cover other than spring ephemerals.
Finton has a short 1/2 mile trail on easy terrain and the primary entrance is located on Woolsey Lake Road. This is a great walk for those with limited mobility. Look for sign and entrance along Woolsey Lake Road.
