Trail Description:

The Shiawassee River is a shallow, slow moving stream which features an "Up North-Close by" view of nature starting from the old water works building in the Village of Holly and traveling seven river miles downstream through an unspoiled natural landscape to Strom Park in the City of Fenton. Travel another seven miles down river as it continues to wind through Fenton's parks, Lake Ponemah, Tupper Lake, and Linden Mill Pond. The river becomes more secluded and wild past Historic Linden wonding for eight miles through wetlands and woods into Argentine.
