“A nice hilly loop up to the Graves Hill Overlook with a return along Hall Lake. A beautiful area all year long.”— Zander Göpfert
For visitors looking to explore a bit more beyond the Graves Hill Overlook, continue northeast to find the glacial kettle holes called the "Devil's Soup Bowl."
From the trailhead near Gun Lake Road, head into the woods (east) starting a short climb. Because this run is a loop and the trails in Yankee Springs can be traveled in either direction (for foot traffic), you can bear right (counterclockwise) and head toward Hall Lake first or, like this GPS shows, head left (clockwise) to climb a quick hill before completing the ascent to Graves Hill Overlook and then return along the Hall Lake shoreline. Along the shore, you'll be traveling on a section of the NCT (NCT: MI Segment 6 - West Michigan), which spans the entirety of Michigan from top to bottom for over 1,000 miles!
