Join the NCTA Jordan Valley 45° Chapter for a hike in April! Meet at Warner Creek Pathway Trailhead on M-32 (Michigan Mile 660), which is about 3 miles west of US-131. We will gather at 9:30 a.m. and hit the trail promptly at 10:00. Before the hike, we will need to post cars at Dobleski Road and afterwards ferry people back to M-32.

  • Long Hike Option: Hike counter-clockwise on the Warner Creek Loop (about 3 miles) with a stop along the way to check out the world-famous beaver deceiver (mile 661) on Warner Creek/O’Brien Pond. We will then continue the Warner Creek loop to M-32 (mile 659) and walk the hilly section between M-32 and US-131 (about 4 miles), cross 131 and hike downhill to Dobleski Road (655.25).
  • Short Hike Option: To shave off a couple miles, some may want to skip the Warner Creek loop and just stay on the NCT (see map, ~4.75 miles).

The Warner Creek Loop is mostly flat but some hills along Warner Creek. The M-32 to US-131 section is hilly, but high and dry. Watch the weather forecast and dress accordingly. We can picnic on the trail, so pack snacks and drinks. If interest afterwards, we may go to Forx in Elmira for pops and sandwiches.

The Jordan Valley 45° Chapter’s trail runs from Starvation Lake Road (near Mancelona) to Kipp Road in Harbor Springs, 79 miles of awesome valleys, hills and wooded trail. Over the course of the year, we try to cover all 79 miles. Monthly hikes are usually on the third Saturday of the month.
