Flat River Drive to Fallasburg County Park

6 miles round trip: 12 miles total

The next section of trail took me to Fallasburg County Park, just north of Lowell, Michigan. The trail passes through the tiny historic village of Fallasburg, and it’s worth a slight diversion to walk through the village to the historic Fallasburg Covered Bridge. The bridge is one of only two remaining historic bridges still serving their original purpose in Michigan.
