Warner Creek Pathway


Warner Creek Pathway sits about midway between the towns of East Jordan & Gaylord in the highlands of northern Lower Michigan. The North Country Trail passes through the pathway on its way south into the beautiful Jordan River Valley. As often happens at this time of the year snow was beginning to fall quite heavily in these slightly higher elevations. I decided it would be a good day to first hike this 3-mile loop and enjoy one of the first snows of the season...
