Young State Park: White Birch Nature Trail
Buy the $.99 downloadable map!(This map is not geo-referenced)
Young State Park’s shortest trail, the White Birch Nature Trail, is it’s most popular during the summer and for good reason. The first half of the 1.5-mile loop skirts Lake Charlevoix, providing easy access to the water and good views of Boyne City and Avalanche Peak towering above the west shore.
White Birch is popular among campers and families who want to explore the park beyond the beach and day-use area. The trail is closed to mountain bikes and the walk is short, level and usually dry even in the spring. Despite its name there is no brochure or interpretive signage along the path.
The trailhead for White Birch is located adjacent to the boat launch in Terrace Campground and from the loop begins with the portion along Lake Charlevoix.
