Warren Dunes State Park

It was a bit warm and therefore slushy when we ventured out, but we had a lovely time nonetheless. We started along one of the hiking trails in the SE corner of the dunes and took that about a mile and a half, tracing through woods and alongside a stream. As a beginner, I appreciated the lack of hills along this route, instead focusing on getting a good glide going. We'll definitely be back for a quick weekend ski trip!

Jackson's Portage Lake Loop

"Portage Lake Loop" / "Falling Waters Trail" / "Waterloo/Pinckney Trail"
There are three trails mentioned in this post, and I'd like to confirm a few things as I create my wishlist and do some more research. The Falling Waters Trail and Waterloo-State Park (Portage Lake) do NOT connect to my knowledge. Wow, sure would be cool if they did.

Falling Waters Trail includes an inter-city route from Downtown Jackson MI, and heads West out of the city, changes to a "Rails to Trails" at the Weatherwax Trail Head, passes through Lime Lake Jackson County Park, and ends in Concord MI. approximately 20 miles of paved bike path.

Waterloo State Park, which is approximately 30 miles North/East of Downtown Jackson MI, is 20,000 acres and has EVERYTHING. Including "Portage Lake Loop Trail", horse trails, snowmobile trails, hiking trails, bike trails, paved trails, dirt trails, gravel trails, ATV trails, and they all cross or come within close proximity of the "Waterloo-Pinckney Trail".

The Waterloo-Pinckney Trail is approximately 40 miles and it twists and turns within Waterloo State Park and Pinckney State Park

discovering this area is on my wishlist - 2015

If this is the Falling Waters Trail, it is a "rails to trails", paved bike trail, from Weatherwax Trail Head to Concord, MI. is close to 10 miles. If you begin in downtown Jackson, the trail could be close to 20 miles depending on your inter-city route and site seeing. I heard the Lime Lake Jackson County Park has a beach, and makes for a great day trip.

Did this trail last night with a great group. Moonlit (and headlamps), brisk, Fast-paced (3.4 mph) hike with downed trees to bound over, switchbacks, lots of rocks and roots, the rushing river shockingly close at points. Definitely more challenging than "moderate" at the big hills. Absolutely loved this hike/ trail run. Thanks due to the man setting the pace And leading us through the maze of trails. So much fun!!

Excellent trail for snowshoeing; some challenging spots where you have to get across the water. Going thorough tunnel like path created by snow covered trees gave a fairy tale experience! It was around 7ºF/-14ºC, but going with a group made it very enjoyable.

Nice trail. Several access points. A few different ways to go and you can go all the way around if you choose.

Great for first time backpackers. The trail wasn't long and was easy. It is not marked though.
Beautiful views- loved being able to camp right on the beach.
