The Hill Nature Preserve

 Old Horton Bay Road

This 106 acre preserve was donated to the Little Traverse Conservancy in 2011.  A portion of this preserve is located within the city limits of Boyne City while the majority is in Evangeline Township.  Views of Lake Charlevoix are found at the highest points of the land.  The land is a mix of pines and hardwoods offer a diversity of habitats. Apple trees are remnants of an old farmstead.   Two miles of marked trails include old two-track roads as well as single tracks and are groomed for cross-country skiing by a volunteer.  Click here for a map.
