DUCK CREEK NATURAL AREA

The Duck Creek Natural Area (DCNA) is approximately 310 acres of Township Property located in the center of the township. It is bordered on the south by Duck Lake Road and Simonelli Road on the east side. Duck Creek flows through the center of this beautiful and undeveloped tract of land.

Fruitland Township, with help from the Friends of Fruitland Township Trails is currently working on building natural walking trail systems for the enjoyment of the community.

In 2023 Fruitland Township and the Friends of Fruitland Township Trails are working together to seek a Michigan DNR Trust Fund Grant to continue the current trail system as well as create accessible trails that meet ADA requirements.
