Logan Creek - Watershed #9
The watershed which cradles the Gardens at Waters East is home to many
precious and scenic natural areas.The waters from these areas flow into the Great Lakes and help replenish
one of the world’s largest fresh water reserves.
Logan Creek is a small creek
flowing within one of the many wonderful natural areas of Door County in
Wisconsin near Lake Michigan about one hour north of the gardens.The creek starts at Lost Lake and flows
into Clark Lake.The main trail is
situated along the creek and the north shore of Clark Lake with more than 3,000
feet on that lake.
Trails pass through northern
forest dominated by white cedar and black ash.Along the way hikers can discover so many varieties of
wildflowers, especially in the Spring.
