East Creek Hillside Hike

Off the beaten track, but well worth the effort, East Creek offers a secluded trail system that winds up and down a variety of northern woodland habitat. This hike will take you up the hillside and through an oak dominated woodland– so keep your eyes peeled for wildlife! East Creek Reserve is owned by Rotary Charities and managed for public use by the Grand Traverse Conservation District. This 560-acre reserve is located just south of Traverse City in Mayfield. The property includes high quality forests, wetlands, and river ecosystems. In the spring the trails offer some of the area’s best views of native wild flowers.
