Darnton Family Nature Preserve

This land is a mix of varying habitats and topography, with sweeping views of the surrounding valleys. The northern portion of the property is dominated by lowland conifers and frontage on Portage Creek and an unnamed stream. The central portion of the property contains old farm fields, rolling hardwoods, and a small red pine plantation. The southern portion is high, open farm fields that provide outstanding views in all directions. There are several two-tracks and fences on the property, and also several small farm dumps and old foundations. Located three miles southwest of Boyne City.
