The Herman Vogler Conservation Area (HVCA) was established in 1989. The Presque Isle Conservation District purchased this property from the Michigan Dept. of Natural Resources for $1.00 in 1989 to be used as a recreational facility for residents of Rogers City, Presque Isle County, and visitors to northeast Michigan.
This beautiful 270 acre site is owned by the Presque Isle Conservation District and is open to the public year-round for a multitude of recreational activities that can include; nature walks, bird watching, wildlife viewing, fishing, limited hunting, picnics, relaxation, etc. Approximately one-third of the land lies within the city limits of Rogers City. Seven miles of trails are used by hikers in the warm months and skiers during the winter months. Trout River crosses the property along with several other small creeks.
Interpretive signs are posted along the trails and a trail map is posted at the inner parking lot.
Brochures describing the park, which includes a trail map, are available from the District office or the Chamber of Commerce. A portion of the Huron Sunrise Trail enters the park and overlooks the Trout River Flooding. Fully accessible restrooms are at the parking lot.
Please be advised that many of the trails located in HVCA are bare-ground and therefore may be muddy and slippery when the weather has been wet. Also, the bridges in the southwest corner of the conservation area are not in working order, but will be repaired as soon as possible this year.
