Dunes

Elberta Dunes South Natural Area

EDNA is our most recent addition to the Village Parks. Rising to 225′ above Lake Michigan, EDNA rewards hikers with beautiful panoramic views of the Betsie River Wildlife Refuge and the Lake Michigan Shoreline. The hike is moderately difficult and venturing off the path is not encouraged to avoid dune erosion and poison ivy. EDNA is at the southernmost part of the Village and is accessed by a parking area off M-22. ENDA can also be entered by bicycles and pedestrians from the south end of Lincoln Ave.


Arcadia Marsh Nature Preserve

Esch Beach

This beautiful beach is located at the mouth of Otter Creek. It is fun to wade in the warm water of the creek. Walk up the creek to see a variety of wildflowers that line the banks. The creek outlet to the lake can move north or south depending on the wave action on the lake. It can look different each time you visit. Esch Road is located about 3 mile south of Empire on M-22. Turn to the west and follow the road about 1 mile to Lake Michigan. You can park along the road and there are bathroom facilities.


Point Betsie Lighthouse

Point Betsie Lighthouse

Explore a place where Great Lakes maritime history is brought to life. At Point Betsie lighthouse, you’ll learn about daily life as a lighthouse keeper. You’ll see the keeper’s daily routines and feel the danger of a long-ago Lake Michigan rescue. You’ll imagine the loneliness and isolation when the nearest road is 40 miles away – and it could only be reached by boat along the Lake Michigan shoreline. And you’ll look across the water from the lighthouse tower and imagine a hundred vessels a day, loaded with iron ore, wheat, or timber, sailing for Chicago or Milwaukee or Marquette.


Betsie River Pathway

Betsie River Pathway

The Betsie River Pathway winds for 8 plus miles along the Bestie River, six miles west of Thompsonville and south of Traverse City. The trail is good for hiking, mountain biking and cross-country skiing and contains two loops. The first of two loops contains mostly flat terrain, is a little bit longer at 6.6 miles and winds through the woods. The second of the two loops is a shorter, 2.8-mile route that contains more varied terrain through meadow and wooded areas. The Betsie River Pathway also connects to Crystal Mountain’s Aspen Trail.


Arcadia Marsh Nature Preserve

Arcadia Marsh Nature Preserve

Arcadia Marsh Preserve, located just south of Arcadia, offers visitors access to a Great Lakes Coastal Marsh, a rare and declining natural community found only in Great Lakes coastal areas. It is estimated that over 80% of all original Great Lakes marshes have been destroyed. These marshes are some of the most productive ecosystems in the world, and Arcadia Marsh is one of only 15 or so remaining coastal marshes along Lake Michigan’s Lower Peninsula shoreline.
