Little Traverse Conservancy Nature Preserves

The Conservancy works hard to balance the public uses offered on our preserves with protection of their natural integrity and scenic beauty for future generations. Recreational, educational, and scientific use of the preserves is encouraged, as long as it does not interfere with our primary goals of preservation and protection. We welcome you to explore and enjoy our beautiful preserves, keeping in mind that you are a temporary visitor to the homes of many plants and animals.

Please enjoy: Hiking, birdwatching, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, fishing, and similar low-impact activities.

Pick up a copy of the preserve guide map at their office, or visit their website for an interactive map and more details. More than 100 miles of trails are available throughout the service area.

Please refrain from: Snowmobiling, camping, fires, dumping or littering, removal of vegetation, off-road vehicles.
