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.

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
