    The 193-acre Cedar River Natural Area stretches between the Antrim County Fairgrounds east to Burrel Road and features 1.5 miles of the designated blue ribbon trout stream and three miles of trails. The trails wind through a variety of habitat, including wetlands, cedar swamps, stands of hemlock, and riparian forest along the Cedar River, and a handful of interpretive signs explain many of them. Three trailheads provide access into the preserve with the Fairground Trailhead, a short walk for campers staying at nearby Craven Park Campground, being the most popular.
