approximately 5408 Boyne City Road, Horton Bay
(The creek flows under the Charlevoix/Boyne City Road approximately one-half mile west of the village of Horton Bay. As you approach the bridge over the creek, watch for a small sign on the right (north) side of the road marking the Little Traverse Conservancy's Rufus Teesdale Nature Preserve. Turn right into the preserve, pull into the parking area, and follow the footpath to the creek.)
Hemingway loved to fish for trout on Horton Creek. He refers to it in "The End of Something," "The Indians Moved Away" and "On Writing," and it appears to be the model for the creek mentioned in "Summer People" and "The Last Good Country." Also, in True at First Light, Hemingway describes his vivid memories of fishing at the cider mill located on it.
