Super nice trail. I believe this is an old railroad tracks that they converted into a pathed bike / walking trail. I have even seen people roller blading. There is ample parking in many locations along the trail and they even have a bike pump at one of the intersections. Mostly forest and fields but if you go far enough... More

The Falling Waters Trail, an old railroad grade, is easy to navigate on foot or bicycle. The stretch between the halves of Lime Lake is especially pretty, but there are several other scenic, peaceful areas, too.

This was a nice, flat trail that is clean and well maintained. The scenery could be a little better. IT was nice for walking my 2 large dogs.

I always love my time on this trail. It is over 10 miles long, which makes for a great exercise or time for just a good think. I use it mostly for biking, both with friends or by myself. In addition to many wooded areas it also has some open fields and Lime Lake as part of the experience.

This is a wonderful way to get outside and exercise. My husband and I walked, but many people were biking. We saw people of all ages. You can go as far as you want, turn around and go back. There is lots of parking. Check it out.

beautiful 20+ mile trail in Jackson from Weatherwax Drive to Concord, MI. Quiet with nature and animals all along. The trail does go further into Jackson and not sure how much farther.
