Easy hiking. The 3.5 miles of foot paths and boardwalk winding through an 1,100-acre preserve of forests, swamps, bogs and river shoreline provide access to this unique and beautiful section of the Chain of Lakes. Eagles and other wildlife can be seen here. There are two viewing platforms overlooking the Grass River and a beautiful sedge meadow. Naturalists are often on-site during the summer months offering classes and interpretive programs. This is an interesting hike for the whole family. Located off CR 618, four miles north of Alden.
