100 acres in Broomfield Township, Isabella County and established in 2013, this 100 percent wooded preserve protects 1,000 feet of Hall’s Lake shoreline and scenic viewscapes. More than 500 feet of original corduroy logs making up historic Old State Road can be seen in lowland on the SE edge of the preserve.
This preserve includes several microhabitats such as lakeshore floodplain, swamps, bogs, a small red pine plantation and mixed aspen/hardwood forest. Veery, Canada Warbler and Northern Waterthrush are known to nest here. More than a mile of footpaths through the preserve link up with others in the Neely Preserve to the south and the Schaftenaar property on the northwest.
