Conglomerate Falls

 

120 acres with big trees and 3/4 of a mile of the Gratiot River.

Great fishing, hiking, snowshoeing and birding.

Secluded (now solar powered!) cabin for rent.

Come see the falls for the day or stay for a week!

DIRECTIONS Proceed to Ahmeek (4 miles north of Calumet on US 41) then turn left on Hubbell Street (at the Ahmeek Streetcar Station) and go 2 blocks (the park will be on your left), then turn right on Bollman. After a couple blocks, Bollman turns into Five Mile Point Road. About 2.6 miles after leaving US 41, turn left on South Farmer’s Block Road. Go straight on South FBR for 1.0 miles (it changes names from SFBR to Tanskanen Road at 0.8 miles), then continue straight onto the two track woods road where the paved road makes a 90 degree right turn (if you turn right, you will get to the GRN Trailhead in 0.3 miles). The two track leads about 0.4 miles to a parking area near the falls. Please be aware that the first quarter mile of this road is an easement on private property.  Please drive slowly and do not leave the easement. Please do not drive up to or park at the cabin. If you would like to rent the cabin, please Contact Us. See also the larger map on the Trailhead page.

After years of inquiry and negotiation, and $30,000 in donations to cover the down payment and closing costs, the NWC was finally able to purchase Conglomerate Falls in 2010. However an $85,000 mortgage remains on this property.  Proceeds from the cabin rental go towards mortgage payments.  Our special thanks to Dr. and Mrs. Brumm for ensuring that this property was conveyed into public access ownership rather than being split into river-front lots.  *Click the button above for cabin reservations:  $400 per week May 1 - November 30, or $60/night (2 night minimum); $300 per week December 1 - April 30, or $40/night (2 night minimum).


A new special THANK YOU goes out to Olson Electric and Michigan Energy Solutions of Houghton for their generous donation of time, an inverter, and a solar panel.
