Trail of the Week: NCST – Indian River to Topinabee

This 5.6 mile section of trail between Indian River and Topinabee has some great views and great amenities on either end. The Indian River Trailhead is adjacent to the Chamber of Commerce office on S Straights Highway at the north end of downtown. At the trailhead you’ll find parking, restrooms, water, picnic pavilion, playground, and interpretive signs. You’ll find visitor information at the Chamber of Commerce. Indian River is a full-service community with hotels, restaurants and shops.

This scenic segment of trail features the “spreads” of the Indian River as it enters Mullett Lake and offers many views on the way to Topinabee. Topinabee has a lovely lakeside park near the former depot (now a library) with a swimming beach.
