Alpena Township Nature Preserve
Located at the east end of Misery Bay Road. The journey to this site will take you through the La Farge quarry and cement plant. Interesting sights, but watch for large trucks. Ford Avenue turns into Misery Bay Road outside the City limits.
This recently established park has a series of hiking trails leading to a sink hole in Lake Huron. These trails and a Great Lakes fen offer a wide variety of wildflower viewing. The mixed woods harbor a variety of nesting birds, including Black-throated Green Warblers and American Redstarts.
Roadside parking is limited, so make sure your vehicle is off the roadway.
