Robert Thorson Brown Nature Sanctuary
This easy, half mile trail can be wet in the spring and after heavy rain but with the boardwalk that extends through a cedar swamp it makes for a great learning experience.
To get there from Houghton, follow M-26 west through South Range to Painesdale. A few miles past Painesdale, look for the small green sign for Lake Perrault, and turn right onto Lake Perrault road. About .1 mile from M-26, you'll see the sanctuary sign on the right. Turn right onto the two-track and park by the trailhead sign on the right.
