Grand Traverse Commons: Old Orchard Vistas
This trail isn’t for the weak-kneed. It rises over 300 feet and offers some of the finest view of Traverse City and Grand Traverse Bay. Try to spot a raptor while resting on one of the benches overlooking the city. The Grand Traverse Commons Natural Area is a 140-acre park with miles of unpaved trails that wander up, down, and around wooded hillsides, streams, meadows, and wetlands. The park is a part of the overall Grand Traverse Commons Redevelopment District and was originally a part of the former State Psychiatric Hospital. Hiking, biking, nature watching and cross-country skiing are all enjoyed at the park. Adjacent to the park on the east is The Village at Grand Traverse Commons, a redevelopment of the old State Hospital area containing a mix of retail, office, and residential uses.
