Sleepy Hollow Nature Preserve

Sleepy Hollow Ln,
East Jordan, MI 49272
(231) 347-0991

Size: 55 acres

Frontage: A spring-fed stream flows through the property.

Land Description: The stream (known as Sear Creek) running through this preserve is home to brook trout and empties into the South Arm of Lake Charlevoix. The property is dominated by Sugar maple, American beech, and Ash, and also includes Aspen and Hemlock.  The beautiful forest is second growth, and large stumps with fire scars scattered throughout the preserve stand as testimony to its past logging days.

Trails: A small parking area and more than one mile of easy walking trails are available.

Directions: From Charlevoix, take M-66 south approximately 7 miles to Sleepy Hollow Lane, which is opposite Phelps Road. Turn left onto Sleepy Hollow Lane. Drive in to the parking area on the left.

Lovely marked trails with boardwalks in the low areas, heavily wooded scenery, and the serene, winding creek all make for a beautiful nature walk. Many unusual-shaped tree trunks and stumps are photo worthy. Although the traffic on highway 66 can be heard in spots, the leaves rustling in the wind, the trickling creek, and chirping birds drown out all but the loudest vehicle noises. This trail is definitely a favorite of mine!

Wonderful place for a hike! Longest loop is a mile (there are 2 loops) . Lots of shade and beautiful woods. Highly recommend visiting.

Well marked trail in nice wooded area. Trail about 3/4 mile or one a mile. Benches along way with little brook flowing through. Saw a good size buck and heard a pileated woodpecker.
