Louis M. Groen Nature Preserve (2043 Gingell Rd, Johannesburg, MI 49751, 16 miles, 22 min): great place to hike in the summer and snowshoe/cross county ski in the winter. Make sure to check hours on the day of your visit to make sure they are open. Have lunch or dinner at Paul's Pub (10757 M-32, Johannesburg, MI 49751). Open flame grilled streaks are great!
