Join the NCTA Jordan Valley 45° Chapter for a color tour from Kipp Road to Bayfront Park in Petoskey.

We will meet at Bayfront Park by the Bear River (Michigan NCNST Mile 605) at 10:00 and then head out by 10:30 to ferry everyone to the hike’s start at Kipp Road (Mile 597). This hike will be about seven miles. For a two-mile shorter hike, you could start at N. Conway Road and US-131 (Mile 599). Or, you could start at Bayfront Park and walk north to meet the southbound group.

The trailhead at Kipp Road is the northern terminus of the Jordan 45° Chapter. The first two miles of the hike to Conway are roadwalk. After Conway we will pass Round Lake, walk along Little Traverse Bay and pass through Bayfront Park.

After the hike we will ferry drivers back to the start at Kipp Road to recover cars. We will also gather for pops and lunch at one of the local establishments (Duffy’s, Beard’s or Petoskey Brewing Co.). Come prepared for the weather, it can be windy on the bay. Bring plenty of water and snacks.
