Reffitt Nature Preserve

Preserved by the Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy, the Reffitt Nature Preserve is now an 87 acre property forever preserved and open to the public.

Reffitt Preserve encompasses wetlands, Mitchell Creek, and forests that play a key role in protecting water quality and host diverse wildlife species, and distinctive plant life. Hikers may explore the preserve by venturing along the 1.7 mile trail loop including narrow, meandering boardwalks, surrounded by lush tree and plant growth and walking paths winding over distinct dune and swale complexes (small wooded hills rising above low-lying wetlands).
