Welcome to White River Trails

White Cloud Campground Connector Trail

The Campground Connector Trail is a 4.3-mile loop that provides a connection for local hikers from the campground through Forest Service lands where it connects with the North Country Trail. The connector returns to the campground, providing a route for hikers on the North Country Trail to access the campgrounds for overnight camping or longer stays so they can use the amenities or enjoy the easy walk to the local restaurants and businesses.

The North Country National Scenic Trail

The North Country National Scenic Trail is the longest in the National Trails System, stretching 4,600 miles across eight states from North Dakota to Vermont. The Trail traverses through more than 160 federal, state and local public lands, including 10 National Forests, four areas of the National Park Service, and over 100 state parks, forests and game areas.

White Cloud is located about an hour’s drive north of Grand Rapids, and serves as a base for enjoying the NCT in Newaygo County and the lower Huron-Manistee Forest. White Cloud is about midpoint on the entire NCT, and was the location of the original headquarters for the NCT. In addition to a trailhead in the City of White Cloud, the NCT has access in nearby Everett, Sherman and Lincoln Townships.
