Mason Nature Area
The Mason Nature Area, while small, is nestled right in the heart of the City of Houghton on Franklin Street, just above E. South Avenue. The Scales Creek Lava Flow is visible in this area and provides insight into the region's rich geological history. A short trail will lead you up this rocky outcrop, passing through dense cedar stands and small openings in the forest canopy. Despite it's small size, there's a lot to see here and it's the perfect destination for a brief hike after dinner downtown.
