The Falling Waters Trail is a 10.5-mile asphalt rail-trail that links the town of Concord with the city of Jackson. The trail follows the old rail bed of the former Michigan Central Railroad, and connects Cascades, Ella Sharp, Lime Lake and Swains Lake parks. At its northeast terminus the trail carries on as the Jackson Intercity Trail
to Belden Road.
The trail is mostly rural, with only a few road crossings. It also crosses the Lime Lake causeway where you can drop a line for fish. There are plenty of places to stop along the way and admire the scenery, have a picnic and take a swim.
You can access the Falling Waters Trail at the following locations; parking is also available. For more detailed directions to each of these trailheads, visit Friends of the Falling Waters Trail
