Nice trail that extends from the Tridge to the Chippewa Nature Center. I’ve run it many times and have never had to stop, despite crossing roads a couple times. Only downsides are that there isn’t much shade, and it isn’t plowed and salted during the winter like the rail trail is.

I always enjoy visiting the Nature Center when I'm in Michigan. The trails are well-marked and taken care of.

Beautiful nature center with friendly staff. Trails were well maintained, easy to follow and wide. Lots of variety along the way, pretty scenery.

River trail is great for spotting birds, turtles, and some deer.
