Near the town of Central, Gratiot Lake will make sure you are in shape if you want the best view. The new trail rises nearly 400 feet to an overlook of Gratiot Lake a quarter mile to the south.
A gushing waterfall can be found on Eister Creek by following the creek towards the lake. Please be careful, the journey can be steep and slippery.
Marilyn Jones, of Tucson, Arizona donated the land for this nature sanctuary. Marilyn spent several months of the year in her log cabin at Gratiot Lake and wanted to protect the land in any way that she could. She was a longtime MNA supporter.
