About the land
Dog Hill is on 16 acres of rolling northern Michigan countryside. About 65% of the land is heavily wooded with the remaining land covered in grassy meadow and brush. There is a low valley that has a patch of white pines and there are several abandoned apple trees around. There are lots of deer signs especially near the blackberry patches when we were there in late summer last year. We are planning on building on a central hill that faces another smaller hill that has a nice steep slope. We've seen lots of signs of snowmobiling this winter, especially on our two biggest hills. We had lots of fun on our trip in December sledding down the hills.
