Trail Description and History

The trail offers a pleasant ride through northern hardwood and red pine stands, crossing a number of two-track roads and Forest Highway 13 as it makes its way between Hwy M-94 East and Hwy M-94 West. The trail, which follows an old railroad grade, is well marked and easily followed.

Trail Safety

Please keep in mind that this is a multi-purpose motorized trail. Be prepared to meet ATVs, mountain bikes, snowmobiles and others depending on the season. Trail users should maintain control of their speed at all times and approach turns in anticipation of someone around the bend.
