Falling Waters Trail
One of Michigan's most popular rail-trail destinations!

Connecting the Village of Concord with the City of Jackson, the trail was built on an abandoned stretch of the Michigan Central Railroad. The 10.5-mile, 12-foot-wide paved trail is ideal for walking, running, or biking. As it travels through natural springs and lakes that form the headwaters of four major Michigan rivers.

At the western trailhead in Concord, the trail crosses over the Kalamazoo River where you can view a great expanse of wetlands filled with abundant wildlife. At the mid-point of the trail, stop, relax, and enjoy the natural beauty of the picturesque Lime Lake. This is a trail you will want to visit time and time again to experience the seasonal changes in scenery.

Come out to meet other cachers and enjoy the area.
