The Potawatomi Trail near Gregory Michigan, is a 17 to 19 mile loop hike that runs through the Pinckney State Recreation Area and passes by Silver Lake and small ponds left over from glaciers that carved out the land.

The trail passes though old farmlands, swamps, and has an elevation gain of about 1800 feet, so the trail is relatively flat with some small uphill section in between. This trail is mostly difficult for its length and traversing through swampy areas.

Spur trail to Bruin Lake: If you wish to visit Bruin Lake, plan to add an extra 1.5 or so miles to the journey. This spur trail is found within the first 2 miles of the GPS data provided in the map. If you want to shave off a couple of miles from your trip, you can cut that section out.

Camping/Backpacking: Trailside camping is available within designated campgrounds. Please contact the park office for registration information before you camp.

Trailhead: The GPS data starts along Crescent Drive near the Blind Lake Campground; however, it may be easier to hop on this trail near Silver Lake instead.
