If you want the beauty of a pond, a creek, woods, roaring water, old machinery, history, visit Mayfield Pond right behind the Post Office in Mayfield, Michigan. The actual trail is less than a mile, traversing along the creek, up a lot of stairs to the ridge to look through woods down at the pond, continuing on the path that returns via the dam, and back around to the pond. It is a DO NOT MISS spot. In 1922 the Adams Dry Fly was created here and on the day we visited, a young man was fly fishing and showed us what that fly looks like. These pictures were a few weeks ago; I have hiked here in the fall – magnificent with the colors, and have snow-shoed in the winter when the pond only partially freezes and the creek continues to move. It continues to amaze me with its beauty.
