The Jordan River Pathway is the most popular weekend backpacking trips in Michigan’s Lower Peninsula, thanks to its scenery, walk-in campground and the rugged and remote nature of the Jordan Valley. Located north of Mancelona, the 18-mile, two-day pathway is a loop, thus eliminating the need for complicated transportation arrangements, and has enough climbs, especially on the second day, to give anybody a sense of accomplishment.
Most of all, the Jordan River Pathway is a scenic walk where much of the day is spent either skirting the cedar banks of blue-ribbon trout stream or climbing to overlooks for views of the valley below.
