WOW! Have we been “active” in the communities of the Breezeway! East Jordan and Ellsworth have so much to celebrate and showcase to our residents and visitors this year. The amazing Don and Eileen Klein Nature Trail has been completed in East Jordan. This universally accessible boardwalk takes you out onto the Jordan River for a memorable nature experience on Michigan’s first designated wild and scenic river. The boardwalk is a photographer or birding enthusiast’s dream. The trail will be open year-round for all to enjoy. Thank you to everyone who made this magnificent boardwalk possible. Be sure to check out the Friends of the Jordan Watershed Center and Sportsman’s Park while vising the Klein Trail. And don’t miss another way to get “active”... Stroll on the Jordan Art Walk to enjoy all the beautiful sculptures.

The Village of Ellsworth has been “active” with a wayfinding sign project throughout the community. Striking new signs and a kiosk have been installed at the village entrances and at Community Square. The project continues to unfold with additional signs to be added in the future.

Throughout the communities, new businesses continue to open, existing businesses celebrate major milestones and success. Existing houses are being updated and new business ventures are being started or planned. The excellent quality of life the region provides continues to attract individuals of all ages to relocate here.

If you are interested in opening a business or relocating to East Jordan, Ellsworth or Atwood, please contact our Chamber Office. If you are planning a vacation to our area, be sure to check out our website at www.ejchamber.org.

Hope to see you soon!

Most sincerely,

of Commerce

Whether you are interested in ancient times, geologic history or modern technology, Raven Hill has a potpourri of stimulating and entertaining offerings that will stimulate your interests and encourage you to make new connections. When you “Ride The Breezeway”, you travel from Boyne Falls through East Jordan, Ellsworth and Atwood. Next time you drive this scenic route, make plans to stop and spend some extra time exploring Raven Hill Discovery Center at Mile 15 on the Breezeway. There is no better place to Get Active!

At the Ancient World, you can climb a pyramid, walk through a Roman arch, and even hang out with Dum Dum, the Easter Island head. Families spend quality time playing school in the one-room School House and enjoy time at the Treehouse, which is built in the shape of a maple leaf and is barrier free - the ramp being the stem of the leaf. And don't miss the outdoor Earth Tones Musical Garden where you can explore instruments made of stone, wood and metal.

If you enjoy the natural world, explore the Watershed Model with its waterfall, wetlands, springs bubbling up, and the rivers leading down to a small lake. Take the wetlands boardwalk to a Pond full of frogs for catch & release and viewing platform on the bank of Deer Creek.

Get Active on our beautiful... LAKES & RIVERS

Lake Charlevoix

The Jordan River

The 24.9-mile-long Jordan River is the largest tributary of Lake Charlevoix. Its headwaters rise from springs in the upper Jordan River Valley northeast of Mancelona in Antrim County. The Jordan River was the first river to be designated in Michigan's Natural Rivers Program and is well known for its world-class brook trout fishing and scenic canoe, kayak and raft trips. The river is accessible by many roads & trails.

Lake Charlevoix was once voted the second best lake in America in a USA Today poll, behind only Lake Tahoe. Being awarded this honor is partly due to the many forms of recreation the lake provides, including swimming, kayaking, sailing, fishing, diving, boating, water skiing, and just relaxing on the beach. Lake Charlevoix is also one of Michigan’s largest and most magnificent lakes. It is the 3rd largest lake in the state in terms of surface area, but its shoreline length far exceeds that of any other inland lake in Michigan. If you kayak the entire shoreline of Lake Charlevoix, you will have traversed 60 miles!

Chain of Lakes Water Trail

The Chain of Lakes Water Trail is one of only eight state-designated water trails and the only water trail in Northern Michigan. This non-motorized water trail has over 80 miles of routes to explore and something for all types of paddlers.

The Upper Chain is made up of smaller lakes and is a great experience for beginner paddlers. Begin, end or pass through three lakeside communities - Ellsworth, Central Lake, and Bellairewhere you will find food, camping, and all the other amenities.

The Lower Chain includes larger lakes like Torch Lake and Elk Lake for experienced paddlers. Explore the Grass River Natural Area, find a sunken ship, or just enjoy the turquoise waters of Torch Lake. In Bellaire, Alden, and Elk Rapids you will find all you need to enjoy your time on the water. Don't forget Paddle Antrim Sept. 12-14 www.paddleantrim.com

Nathan Beem Memorial Nature Preserve: 105 Acres with 1,880 feet of shoreline on the east side of Six Mile Lake.

The Jordan Valley Pathway is an 18-mile hiking trail in the Jordan River Valley. The pathway winds through the Mackinaw State Forest along the Jordan River. This scenic valley is well worth a trip in any season, however fall colors are noteworthy due to its rich hardwood forests. Its looped trail system is mixed with moderate to rugged topography, providing excellent opportunities for hikers and backpackers. The full pathway is a good two-day hike. Backpackers can stay at the Pinney Bridge State Campground, located near the trail’s halfway point (dispersed camping is not allowed in the Jordan Valley). Hikers can conveniently start and end at the same place if completing a smaller loop or the whole trail. This trail houses four different trailheads that allow access to the pathway, with the main trailhead located at Deadman’s Hill Overlook. No biking is allowed on the Jordan Valley Pathway.

Don & Eileen Klein Nature Trail

A longtime dream for East Jordan is coming to fruition this year!

The brand-new Don & Eileen Klein Trail from Sportsman’s Park to the Rogers Family Homestead Nature Preserve (Rogers Preserve) will create a universally accessible trail that takes you along the edge of the beautiful Jordan River. This trail provides for a continuous trail opportunity from downtown East Jordan to the north end of the Rogers Homestead trail, a total of two miles in one direction. Opportunities to join the trail will also exist at Sportsman’s Park, the Friends of the Jordan Watershed Center, and the two parking areas on the north and south ends of the Rogers Preserve. The completion of this trail was made possible by a lead donation from Don Klein, a multitude of other donors, and a partnership between the City of East Jordan, Little Traverse Conservancy, Friends of the Jordan Watershed Center, the East Jordan Chamber, and the East Jordan Trails Committee. For a map of the trail, visit: www.landtrust.org/explore.

Friends of the Jordan River Watershed Center getting ready for a very "Active" 2024 & Beyond!

In anticipation and excitement for the opening of the Don & Eileen Klein Memorial Boardwalk, the Friends of the Jordan River has been very busy updating and upgrading its building (which just happens to be East Jordan’s oldest commercial building) located at 101 Union Street. The building underwent a power washing, had new shingles put on the porch roof, a complete deck railing remodel and staining of the deck. The building and its nearby pavilion (perfect for picnics, lunches, meetings, etc.) were repainted as was he inside of the building this past year. During the upcoming summer of 2024, FJR will be enhancing the lighting around the deck and in its pavilion. Summer organization projects include checking the water quality of the Jordan River in five locations on the river and doing a macroinvertebrate study of bugs on the Jordan River. New this summer, the Watershed Center Building will be open with part time hours thanks to volunteer docents. Don’t miss visiting this historic building when in the area. www.friendsofthejordan.org

Grand Army Republic Park

The Grand Army Republic Park located on Main and Williams Streets in East Jordan has undergone a major renovation this year by the American Legion Post #227 Rebec-Hosler Sweet Post and the East Jordan Shoe Club. The newly landscaped park features a gazebo, a display of military flags and the incredible Jordan Valley Honor Star.

The Shoe Club - "Stories of Service"

The East Jordan Shoe Club, a leadership club for middle school students and high school mentors, worked on a yearlong Honor & Service Project to honor our local heroes - past, present and future.

One part of their project was a heartwarming collaboration in which Shoe Club students embarked on a journey to interview local East Jordan veterans for a book celebrating honor and service. With an eagerness to learn from the brave men and women who have served our country, these young writers captured inspiring stories that underscored the values of sacrifice, courage, and gratitude. Through these interviews, students forged a connection with the veterans, fostering a deeper appreciation for the sacrifices made in the name of honor and service. Also included in the book is a reflection essay written by each Shoe Club member on what honor and service means to them. We take immense pride in this comprehensive 300-page historical reference documenting East Jordan's rich history. Available for purchase at the Chamber office.

Banks Township

Banks Township is a rural jewel in the north end of Antrim County. The spring and summer months bring a gorgeous green to our rolling hills; the Chain of Lakes provide ample water recreation opportunities; and winter offers up a crisp change of scenery on the lakes. Play on the Lake Michigan shoreline at Banks Township Park or walk and bike ride the non-motorized trails at Antrim Creek Natural Area. Whatever your recreational itch, Banks Township is a great destination to scratch it.

Village of Ellsworth

Founded in 1881 and incorporated as a village in 1938, Ellsworth is located on the scenic Breezeway and Chain of Lakes. If you are seeking a great place to live, retire, or play, Ellsworth is the place. With its park system, waterways, scenic roads, and snowmobile trails, Ellsworth is a great area to take advantage of Michigan’s Natural Resources during the four seasons.


Atwood is home to several farm markets, a winery, 3 restaurants, a John Deere mecca, a motel, a famous tiny chapel and an 18-hole golf course. Oh, and a 156-acre public natural area is located on Lake Michigan which has some of the best sunsets in the State!

Most students actively participate in numerous before and after school activities while attending Ellsworth Community School.

With a small student to teacher/staff ratio, all Ellsworth students have access to opportunities that are virtually unheard of in other schools its size, including; free developmental pre-school, full day kindergarten, on-line learning opportunities for advanced classes and credit recovery, college credit at no charge to students, music/ art/physical education for all students, iPads in every classroom, one-one laptops for all high school students, and access to career/technical education programs in graphic arts, agriculture, and building trades.

Ebenezer Christian School

Ebenezer Christian School in Ellsworth, founded in 1945, is a non-denominational school. Our Preschool was founded in 2002. The preschool uses Zoo Phonics which is a method developed to make children strong readers at an early age. Our students use iPad’s during the school year which are integrated into their curriculum. The teacher incorporates online learning in all subjects and utilizes apps that are created specifically for education. Though we are a small school, we offer a great education in a loving environment and strive to be an extension of the home.

North Central Michigan College

Since 1958, North Central Michigan College in Petoskey has been opening the door to academic success for residents by offering two-year associate degrees in the arts and sciences that are transferable to upper division colleges and universities.

East Jordan Public Schools

Building a foundation with a world class education combined with the small school feel and caring environment that our parents have come to trust, our goal is to provide our students with experiences that will last a lifetime... and memories to share forever. EJPS comprises a vibrant part of the community and takes its job of educating East Jordan’s youth seriously. Thanks to our generous community, the district was recently able to upgrade infrastructural items, replace technology, provide secure entry ways, replace buses, and overhaul the high school gym.

In the classrooms, on stage, and on the field of competition, East Jordan students continue to make us proud. We are pleased to boast a wide variety of academic courses, and continue to grow while challenging our students to create, design, build, and apply.

While academic studies and preparation is a primary focus, it is also recognized that in order to prepare our students to be well-rounded, productive members of a community, we must encourage them to take pride in all areas of their growth. Whether through athletics, the arts, community service or simply treating others with respect, East Jordan Pride is a commitment to always doing your best.

Char-Em Intermediate School District
