Walk is guided by a representative of Little Traverse Conservancy. Wear sturdy walking shoes. Bus departs Petoskey Friendship Center at 12:45 p.m. and will pick up at the preserve at 2:30 p.m.

On Wednesday, October 2, experience the colors from above with a chairlift ride at Boyne Highlands. Enjoy a 15-minute ride to the top of the mountain, walk a few trails, and take in the view. When you’re ready to head back down, just take a seat for another beautiful ride. Cost is $5 per person. Wear sturdy walking shoes.
