The Lane Preserve is located in Gladwin County. Traversing through the 270-acre preserve leads up a hill with a panoramic view of the forestland, grassland, and a neighboring pond. You'll walk through an old oak grove and down a hill to the flowing Cedar River where there is an impressive habitat of brown trout!
The Lane Preserve is managed in partnership with Leon P. Martuch Chapter of Trout Unlimited. The property offers spring turkey and deer bow hunting opportunities. Trail expansion is in process.
In partnership with Leon P. Martuch Chapter of Trout Unlimited, the George and Sue Lane Preserve is jointly managed in regards to the river corridor. We have been working together to create fishing access points along the Cedar River within the preserve boundaries.
For the quickest access to the river parking is available on M-18 to the east of the bridge at 5135 M-18 Gladwin, MI with a single track trail marked with neon green blazes (painted rectangles on trees)
Further access can be found using the public parking lot on Shearer Rd and hiking in on the trail or parking along Schmidt Rd on the south end of the property and hiking on a mowed path on the southwest corner of the property.
Fishing access points are unimproved and not labelled currently.
