DescriptionThe Saginaw Valley Rail Trail covers 9.55 miles of abandoned rail corridor in Saginaw County, stretching from Lumberjack Park in St.Charles to Strobel Road in James Township. There is additional parking on the corner of Van Wormer and Swan Creek Roads in Swam Creek Township.

Not just a trail, this paved pathway is a cut above. Interpretive signs lead you through your outdoor journey teaching about area flora and fauna. Lucky trail users have been known to see white tailed deer, turtles, rabbits, geese and ducks. Clean and well maintained, there are three pocket parks and several benches along the trail offering sheltered places to rest. For added scenery, this trail has seven bridges over various rivers and creeks and runs along the Shiawassee State Game Area. Equestrians also have a place on this trail. Trailer parking is available at the Van Wormer Road parking lot and from there you just follow the equestrian signs either North or South for a quiet, challenging ride.

As if that wasn't enough, anglers can try their fortune at the handicapped accessible access to Swan Creek just South on the trail from the Van Wormer Road parking lot.
