The Valley Road parcel is just outside the Village of Mancelona. It was deeded to the County in 1940 under Michigan's Natural resources and environmental Protection Act PA 451. The parcel remained landlocked until 2008 when the County purchased an adjoining 1 acre of land to provide forest management and public access to the parcel from Valley Road.
The parcel contains a 20 acre pine plantation established in 1970. The remaining acreage is northern hardwood forest and managed for the production of sustainable forest products.
