Maplehurst Natural Area
The Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy (GTRLC) officially transferred the Maplehurst Natural Area property to Milton Township at the end of 2018. This acquisition is a result of the GTRLC's successful fundraising efforts and securing a Michigan Natural Trust Fund Acquisition grant on Milton Township's behalf. The nearly 400 acres of once-private land is now open to the public. A total of 6 miles of trail design is currently underway with plans to construct 3.5 miles of trail in 2019 and 2.6 miles in 2020.
