Concord's Historic Millpond 
In 1971, residents were concerned and painted over the slogan emblazoned on the side of building, "Asleep at the switch?  Not by a Dam Site.”

Good signage all along the Trail


A Quiet Corridor Featuring Jackson County, Michigan's Natural Attributes

The Falling Waters Trail is a major east-west component of the Jackson County Regional Trail plan, connecting Cascades, Ella Sharp, Lime Lake and Swains Lake parks in south-central Michigan’s Jackson County with the city of Jackson. The Trail has been dedicated as a Jackson County Park.             

The mission of the Friends of the Falling Waters Trail, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, is to raise funds and public awareness for the development and improvement of the Falling Waters Trail County Park. We have received overwhelming support from citizens in the Jackson, Concord and Spring Arbor areas. We hope you will join them in supporting the construction of the Falling Waters Trail.

Linking Communities Through Non-Motorized Trails:

The Falling Waters Trail is a 10.5 mile linear non-motorized County Park based on the old Michigan Central railroad bed.  It runs between Weatherwax Drive and the Village of Concord, Michigan. This Trail connects Summit, Spring Arbor and Concord townships and crosses Lime Lake on an old causeway.  It connects at its east end to Jackson’s Inter City Trail which continues east three miles into downtown Jackson.  You will find bicycle lanes painted throughout the city for safe cycling.


Join us on Sunday, October 13, 2013 for the 5th running of the Friends of the Falling Waters Trail—Wild Life Marathon.

Help make your commitment for a major running event in 2013
The purpose of this annual event is to raise funds to help maintain the Falling Waters Trail and to support local community and county park improvements to the trail. Click Here for more info.

Friends of Falling Water Trail are in need of a permanent Treasurer on our Board of Directors. Please contact.


Safety is always a top priority for us on the Falling Waters Trail. To support law enforcement agencies that spend some time on the trail, we'd like to begin an organized effort to have volunteers on the trail to help insure a pleasant experience.  If you're available, give Parks Director, Brandon Ransom, a call at 768-2917.
