Entirely wooded, Colonial Point includes the largest old growth red oak stand in the northern Lower Peninsula with trees up to 150 years old. The Chaboiganing Preserve is a mixture of both open fields and woodlands. A total of 482 acres and more than 2 miles of easy trails make for excellent hiking and cross country skiing through the open fields and towering oaks and pines of these adjacent lands. Colonial Point is now owned by the Biological Station. In 1993, LTC used donated funds to purchase 192 acres adjacent to Colonial Point to form the Chaboiganing Preserve. An adjacent two acres were donated by the Pieniozek family in 2012.
