The nature trail on the 3,124 McMahon Lake Preserve is located in Luce County. The preserve lies within the watershed of the Two-Hearted River, a state-designated Natural River. Due to its remote location and swampy nature, the area has avoided logging and development.

Some of the locals you may see while visiting McMahon Lake Preserve is the pine marten, moose, otter, sandhill crane, northern harrier, bear, wolf, loon, coyote and much more. It is recommended that you bring insect repellent because the black flies and mosquitoes are abundant. Also, wear ankle high boots because portions of the trail are very wet.

The preserve is open all year round from dawn until dusk.
