Coffee Creek Preserve

The Coffee Creek Preserve features 157-acres of wetlands, woodlands, prairies, and trails. Over 500 species of plants and animals make their homes in the Preserve. Brick-paved walkways, winding boardwalks, and miles of trails invite guests to explore, unwind, and enjoy.

Known for miles of hiking trails along Coffee Creek in a tranquil setting, the Preserve has a 3-mile loop around the perimeter path, as well as numerous short-distance options for the casual hiker, biker, or runner.  

Located a few short miles from the southern shore of Lake Michigan, migratory birds find the Preserve a welcome resting stop during the migratory journey.

Coffee Creek Watershed Conservancy governs the Preserve and is dedicated to identifying, maintaining, and enhancing the remnant biodiversity of Coffee Creek while providing educational and recreational experiences for all.
