Misty Acres: The Borwell Preserve
Misty Acres: The Borwell Preserve is a 600-acre property that straddles the Benzie-Manistee County line. It includes more than 360 acres of hardwood forest, 6200 feet of the Betsie River, and sensitive wetlands. The preserve includes The Misty Acres Trail which meanders through hardwood forests high above a deep ravine cut by the rushing waters of a tributary to the Betsie River. The loop also provides views of the John J. Helstrom Quiet Area, an exceptional 40 acre addition to the 585 acre Misty Acres. Please note there is no access to the Betsie River from the preserve but there is an access site just east of the preserve on the south side of N. Manistee County Line Road.
