Morrison Lake

Saturday October 10 – McNaughton-Morrison Hike

This trail loop winds through the Ausible River Valley, combining both the McNaughton-Morrison Trail and the Morrison Conservation Area.

The river, trees, birds and wildlife make this an ideal setting for a nature trail. You will pass through towering hardwood and pine forests, skirts along the Ausable River and gives a bird’s eye view of the river valley at several lookouts. It’s also one of the best places to see the area’s unique white squirrels.

Meet at the trailhead (Morrison Dam Conservation Area, just east of Exeter, on Morrison Line, south of 83) at 9:30 am.

Outhouses are located at the trailhead but may not be open under COVID conditions. Only 25 hikers permitted, as social distancing will be in place. To reserve a spot on the hike, or for more information, please contact Hike Leader: Maria
