Morley is a picturesque town on the Little Muskegon River. A dam on the south side of town forms a pond which winds back east for a few miles, creating a scenic landscape, complete with two parks, (one just by the dam and the other up-river about a mile, just a block behind the Deerfield Township Hall.).|
The annual Celebration on the Pond is also an event to remember. It kicks off with a boat cruise on the pond and a dance. With a variety of kidís games, parades and tractor pulls, this fiesta is a time for gathering as a community. Of course we canít forget the baking contests, horseshoe throw and the annual fireman's water battles! These contests are sure to determine bragging rights for the rest of the year!
Morley is also a part of the Rails-To-Trails system of the White Pine State Park. With the trail crossing the Little Muskegon on the remains of an old Railroad bridge, you can get a great look at the road below and the water flowing over the dam. Even if youíre not hiking the Trail, youíll want to check the view out from this bridge, as it is easily accessible just across the street from the park by the dam.
