Cedar Run Creek Natural Area
Cedar Run Creek Natural Area is 316 acres of undeveloped property located 9 miles west of Traverse City. The area includes 1500 feet of pristine shoreline on the northern end of Cedar Lake and 8700 feet of shoreline on both sides of Cedar Run Creek. There are some designated trails on the property. The abandoned M&NE railroad grade runs through a portion of the property. The land is a mixture of cedar, hemlock, mature hardwood, managed aspen, and planted red pine that provide an excellent habitat for the Wood Turtle and the Red Shouldered Hawk. Also, a pair of Common Loon have resided on Cedar Lake over the past several years. The property is adjacent to 40 acres of land owned by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources where there is a managed boat launch. The site offers a location for cross-country skiing, hiking, bird watching, fishing, hunting, and trail biking. Access to the trailhead is on Cedar Lake Road.
