St. Clair Lake/Six Mile Lake Natural Area
192 acres. Frontage: 8,155 feet along St. Clair Lake and Sinclair River. A mix of marshes, cedar wetlands, fields, uplands and forests. This area provides one of the longest stretches of undeveloped shoreline within the Elk River watershed; it is located in the upper portion of an interconnecting chain of lakes and rivers which crosses the Charlevoix--Antrim county border. Mink, otter, great blue heron, belted kingfishers and an occasional bald eagle are among its inhabitants. Parking area is off of Ellsworth Road (C-48) approximately 2 miles east of Ellsworth. A short wood-chipped trail and boardwalk lead to an overlook; a canoe/kayak put-in is at the end of the parking area.
