Now – in Albion – watch for the sign posts near the Albion River Trail!  This is a walking trail – but some parts of the trail are bike friendly.

The North Country Trail stretches approximately 4,600 miles (7,400 km) from Crown Point in eastern New York to Lake Sakakawea State Park in central North Dakota in the United States. Passing through the seven states of New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and North Dakota, it is the longest of the eleven National Scenic Trails authorized by Congress. Like its sister trails, it was designed to provide outdoor recreational opportunities in some of the America’s outstanding landscapes. As of early 2014, 2,730 miles (4,390 km) have been completed.
