Thank you, glaciers, for leaving us a land of breath-stopping precipices. One of our faves? Deadman’s Hill—a rapturous overlook above the 18,000-acre Jordan River Valley, west off U.S. 131 north of Mancelona. Been there? Check out another splendid Jordan River view at the lesser-known Landslide Scenic Overlook, north off Harvey Road via Alba Road. Near Fife Lake, find Eagle Ridge, a gem tucked into Springfield Park and Recreation Area overlooking the Manistee River. Take M-66 south, Lund Road west, then swing a left onto Creighton Road to access the park.
