Experience adventure by chance or by choice. With more than 1,000 acres of parkland, the Mt. Pleasant area is filled with opportunities to unplug.

Start your journey at the Chippewa River, where you can master miles and miles of winding waters via river tube, kayak, canoe or paddleboard. Known as “Michigan’s laziest river” the Chippewa River is perfect for a leisurely trip downstream with friends and family.

Just a step off of the Chippewa River find yourself in one of the many beautiful County parks. Deerfield County Park boasts over 8 miles of hiking and groomed cross country trails, two disc golf courses, many river crossings and bridges, a sandy beach and rustic camping. Northwest of Deerfield, explore Coldwater Lake Family Park, offering beautiful sandy beach camping and activity spaces on the shoreline of Coldwater Lake. Follow the Chippewa River back into the Mt. Pleasant City limits where the GKB riverwalk trail will guide you through four-interconnected, riverfront parks.

Let the culmination of your river and parks exploration lead you to Island Park in Downtown Mt. Pleasant. A 50-acre Island Park, circled by the calming flow of the Chippewa River. Set Up a hammock along the banks of the river and let the kids explore Timbertown Playscape or have them cool off at the Spray park. Before heading to your next adventure, cook-out and fuel-up at one of the many barbeques stands and covered picnic areas.

For those searching for adrenaline, head north to Snow Snake for a Zip Line course offering more than 4,000 feet of cable and speeds of up to 25 mph. From the heights of the Zip Line, look south and you may be able to see the peak of Bundy Hill, Mt. Pleasant’s elusive mountain and the tallest point in Isabella County.

Bundy Hill is only one of 22 nature preserves owned and maintained by the Chippewa Watershed Conservancy (CWC). Protecting over 600 acres of wild lands, the CWC offers a variety of outdoor experience like no other; all preserves are free and open to the public to enjoy.

Once you’ve made a choice about where to go to find yourself, be sure to stand still and enjoy it. Sometimes taking an indirect path leads you to new discoveries. Meandering paths. Meet here. #MeetMtP
