Seven Springs Preserve

    Natural or Wildlife Viewing Features: Natural Area

    Little Traverse Conservancy:

    Size: 53 acres
    Frontage: 2,200 feet along Burt Lake
    Land Description:
    Numerous springs along the shore provide habitat for endangered species. Beautiful upland forest graces this preserve’s upper portions while dense forested wetlands can be found below the dramatic bluff that runs across the property just back from the water’s edge. The wave-swept shore consists of cobble beaches and beds of emergent rushes providing good habitat for fish and other aquatic life.
    Trails: A local favorite for great views and light hiking. The parking area leads to 1.2 miles of trails and a lake overlook.
    The Conservancy acknowledges the Harris and Weiss families of Columbus Beach who initiated this land’s protection. These families partnered to fund its purchase, and coordinate fundraising efforts which brought additional support from Columbus Beach families and many Burt Lake residents and resorters.
