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 kid�s games, parades and tractor pulls, this fiesta is a time for gathering as a community. Of course we can�t 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 you�re not hiking the Trail, you�ll want to check the view out from this bridge, as it is easily accessible just across the street from the park by the dam.
