Spartan Country: 6 miles, 3 ½ Hours
PARKING, CHECK-IN, AND SHUTTLE LOCATION: Lansing City Market
Drop in just below the rapids on the campus of Michigan State University. From there, the narrow and winding Red Cedar will take you past the famous Sparty statue and around Old College Field. If you hear a ding keep an eye out, a Spartan home run might be headed for a splashdown. On a nice sunny day, you’ll see dozens of students lounging along the banks and just as many (only slightly less active) turtles. You’ll float past the Brody Complex and a large building project at the site of the former Red Cedar Golf Course. As you pass under the Kalamazoo St bridge and leave campus, the Red Cedar Extension Trail starts to your right. You’ll be sure to get some looks and waves from passersby. The river trail runs the remaining length of your route taking you past Potter Park Zoo, to the confluence and on to downtown.
Your reservation will include coffee, donuts, and cider!
