It begins at the unusual Tridge, a bridge that spans the confluence of the Tittabawassee and Chippewa rivers, and ends at the nature center where you can view the confluence of the Pine and Chippewa rivers. Extensively renovated in 2009, Chippewa Nature Center is an ideal place for an extended break before heading back. Inside is the popular Wildlife Viewing Area, the River Overlook with its view of two rivers, Ecosystem Gallery and a hands-on, kid-friendly play area along with restrooms and drinking water.
In between the bridge and the interpretive center is a flat asphalt path that is lined by almost a dozen interpretive panels describing historical, cultural and natural features of the land it passes through. The award-winning panels were designed by the staff at the Chippewa Nature Center and turns the trail into an educational experience as well as an outdoor adventure.
