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.

Very safe biking and walking path, even at this time of the year. All ages use the path, and the dog walkers -for the most part- are good about keeping the path clear.

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.

Great paved trail - a rails to trail conversion. Mostly flat. 10 miles 1 way. Hooks in with a trail going into Jackson

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.

Falling waters trail is a "rails-to-trails" path; it's the location of old railroad tracks that have been replaced with a wide, well maintained asphalt trail. Appropriate for walking, running, rollerblading, riding bikes, or stopping at a table for a picnic! No motorized vehicles allowed. The trail passes by several ponds, neighborhoods, farm fields and wetlands; it's relatively flat. It's peaceful,... More

This is a wonderful trail for walking or biking. It is 11 miles long so it can be used by everyone. It has markers along the way so you can keep track of your progress on a daily basis if you are trying to built up your walking miles. If you are into geocaching, there are a few hidden along...

I love to run on this trail. I usually take my dog with me, on a leash, of course. I run from the Concord end to Lime Lake and love the scenery. It's safe, easy and not crowded. Beats a gym or treadmill, hands down.
