The Arbutus Triangle: Check out the seven lakes that make up the Arbutus Triangle, a very scenic and popular area that is a few miiles SE of Traverse City. There are seven roads with the word Arbutus in them and they wind around the lakes and streams, making this a very fun, but confusing area to navigate. You may never be able to leave the Arbutus Triangle once you find it, but you may not want to leave either.
