I really enjoyed this hike. Nice parking lot near the fire station/park. You walk along the river with a couple of bridges. Lots of shade and ferns. Out and back was 4.2 miles. More easy than moderate. You can walk on concrete or stay along the dirt trail near the river.

Short loop trail with nice scenery. Not sure how it got labeled 'moderate' difficulty, this is a very VERY easy hike. Trials are well labeled. Wouldn't go out of my way for this trail as it is neither long nor challenging but would visit it if nearby.

Awesome Nature Preserve with easy terrain. Very well mapped out.

Beautiful view of Little Traverse Bay. I would have preferred biking instead of walking that trail.

Nice trail. Good flow. Easy-moderate mountain bike ride.

Good. Well marked. Nice walk.

Good why to see Lake Michigan

Wow! From the autumn smells to the crunching sounds beneath my feat. My senses were tingling. What an awesome trail to hike. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

For winter goers: Parking has changed to a different location. You must park at Berger road.

Beautiful trail. Varied terrain.

My husband and I hiked this trail today. We were there about an hour and a half and could have stayed hours longer. It was beautiful, a feast for the senses. We can't wait to come back.

Ride it into Charlevoix for lunch/ect. that's a fun town. as for the trail paved and hills some can be challenging. only draw back is it doesn't hug the lake as much as it appears to on the map.
