Six Mile Creek Nature Area


Acres: 200
Established: 2000
County: Baraga
Category: Public Nature Area

One of the KLT's first land projects, the Six Mile Creek Nature Area was gifted to the Land Trust in 2000 by the Michigan Chapter of The Nature Conservancy. The 200-acre wild natural area is rugged, with steep ravines and lush vegetation. Six Mile Creek, a cold-water trout stream, and Hazel Creek course through it and there are many springs and seeps, along with open sedge meadows and uplands. There is forestland that has not been harvested for decades. A large portion of the nature area is dense cedar swamp, providing an excellent habitat for wintering deer, amphibians, and many bird species.

Six Mile Creek Nature Area is located just south of the southern terminus of Keweenaw Bay, roughly 2 miles from Baraga along US-41. There are no improved trails or direct road frontage on the property. A power line cut provides an access point off of the Plains Cut Off Road. The nature area is open to the adventurous for non-motorized recreational use. Please bring a compass or GPS!
