Stepping Stone Falls & Picnic Area

stepping stone falls

There’s a place where the Flint River becomes Mott Lake. Where the ducks swim and the fishing is good. It’s Stepping Stone Falls, one of the most scenic locations in Mid-Michigan. Make your way to the Flint River Bike Path, try your luck with the bluegill and bass or simply while away the good part of a day at our picnic grounds. On summer nights, change your view and enjoy the trails, stargaze and watch as multicolored lights illuminate the falls. However you like to unwind, Stepping Stone Falls is the perfect place to do it.


Located throughout the park are picnic tables for your picnicking enjoyment. There is no fishing allowed on the shore of the picnic areas north of the falls. If you enjoy walking, running or biking, you can access the Flint River Bike path from the corner of Carpenter and Bray where a footbridge takes you to Stepping Stone Falls. Or you can choose to ride the trails through Stepping Stone Falls to Bluebell Beach or Bluegill Boat Launch. Both options are part of both the Flint River Trail and Michigan’s Iron Belle Trail system.
