“Beautiful habitat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

This place is close to Michigan Tech's campus, and I used to love heading down the road to visit (there's a bike path that takes you along the portage to it). There's a pretty extensive boardwalk that takes you through beautiful marshland, and it's especially nice in fall. Worth a stop.

A nature sanctuary on land donated by local philanthropists Dr. Bob and Ruth Nara, the park has a covered area perfect for picnics or get-togethers.

Biked to it after doing the trail along the shore from downtown. Found
it interesting but didn't see too many birds.

“View of Channel is good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

This is a small short walk but nice scenery of the channel. Sometimes turtles nest here. A good way to get a short glimpse of nature in the Keweenaw. Its close by a nice bike/jog path.

“Walk the trails and visit the Copper Country Humane Society”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2012

Really nice trails for walking or running. They have trails for skiing in the winter too. The Copper Country Humane Society is a must visit for animal lovers. It's an amazing animal shelter that is really well kept. You can volunteer to walk the dogs on the trails and play with the kitties in the cat room. The people who work at the humane society are really warm and friendly too, they love a helping hand!
