Description

The River Trail is a small section of the North Country Trail and takes you into a forest of maple, beech and various evergreen trees. It's a hilly trail that initially takes you away from the river into the forest and winds back and forth to and away from the river.

The trail can be traveled in both directions and can be taken as one way or out and back. To complete the trail one way, a shuttle service is provided during the summer months, or if traveling with friends, you can take a vehicle to your start point, and once the trail is completed, go back with the friend's vehicle and get the other.

This is a trail you'll never forget. It's one of Michigan's gems.
