“An ecologically diverse property with majestic oaks.”— Colin Highlands
About halfway, meander down to the bottomlands along the Mackinaw River. You'll encounter a section with easy access to the waterway, which provides some nice areas to relax. As you exit the bottomlands, you'll encounter a short climb, and a beautiful vista awaits. A bench provides a good point to rest. Continue toward the parking lot. With both upland and lowland habitat and impressive property management, this restoration project provides a nice reprieve from the surrounding cornfields.
