The Potawatomi Trail

Local resident Mr. Baker knew what he was doing in protecting his land adjacent to the Pinckney Recreation Area! (Please see the press release for more details.) At more than 30,000 acres, Pinckney-Waterloo is the largest block of public protected land in southern Michigan. By protecting buffer parcels, the natural habitat is kept intact.

Summer is a great time to go hiking, biking, or camping in the Waterloo and Pinckney Rec Areas, our local “big wild.” Here’s a trail map of public trails inPinckney Rec Area (PDF), including the Potawatomi Trail, which Mr. Baker has helped build and maintain. Happy hiking!
