Lake Bailey Sanctuary
This is an entirely wooded 405-acre Michigan Audubon sanctuary in Keweenaw County. The low area immediately adjacent to the parking area is cedar swamp, but it is usually dry and passable using the hiking trail. The trail traverses a steep incline through a hardwood forest to a precipice overlooking the area. Migrating birds of prey are especially abundant in the spring.
What to see: Broad-winged Hawk, Sharp-shinned Hawk, and the occasional Peregrine Falcon or Bald Eagle.
Directions: From Eagle River; M-26 E 4.1 miles past the Little Silver River to E end of Lake Bailey. Large sign and parking area on M-26.
