This Saturday, june 19th at 12pm-3pm, we will be leading a History Hike for Hiking Michigan, at Highland Recreation Area. This will be our second in a series of History Hikes out on the Haven Hill preserve in Highland.

This is the site of the old Edsel Ford Estate, as well as the Nature preserve that surrounds the Estate. It is a wonderful combination of History and Nature in one setting. There has been many new discoveries over the last year, so there are some very interesting things we have to show you.

We will visit the Carriage house, Lodge, Fountain, Poll, Tennis courts and if everyone is up for it, we will show you some of the newly GPSed Ford private Nature trails. There should be something for everyone. Detailsed Maps and info of the Haven Hill and Estate will be there for all in attendance.

You can download more details and a Map to the Hike here;http://www.hikingmichigan.com/PDFinfo/HavenHistory.pdf
