Located less than 1 mile away, "Seven Springs Nature Preserve" is a 50 acre preserve set amongst hard woods and wooded wetlands on the shore of Burt Lake. Having 2 tiers, the upper trail traverses the hardwood forest and is about 0.5 miles long; the lower trail (less than 0.25 miles from the parking area) winds through the wetlands and leads to a platform overlooking Burt Lake. Wildlife species that can be seen include whitetail deer, red fox, coyote, raccoon, & porcupine. If you make your way through the preserve quietly, you may also run across a resident cottontail rabbit or snowshoe hare, wild turkey, or a pileated woodpecker. Be sure to keep your camera handy!
