Porter Creek Natural Area is located on Snyder Road (near the Advance area) and offers a scenic 1.2 mile trail loop.
Porter Creek Natural area is truly one of Charlevoix County's most beautiful walks. It offers abundant wildlife, fern meadows, cedar swamps, bogs, old homestead Apple trees, Red Pine stand, upland hardwood trees, all on an easy to moderate walk. You may see Salmon in Porter  Creek that came up from Lake Charlevoix.
Due to some of the low lands which may be wet certain times of the year (spring), there are detours to follow and stay dry.
