Hiking Watersmeet Ski Trail Ski Watersmeet Ski TrailMountain bike Watersmeet Ski Trail

Trail Distance:

20+ miles containing 8 loops. The shortest loop is 1.7 miles and the longest loop is 6.6 miles.

Description of Surrounding Area:

In addition to its canoeing and water access camping opportunities, the Sylvania Wilderness near Watersmeet contains nearly 30 miles of foot trails. These trails traverse old growth forests and the shores of several lakes. They are well suited for both day hiking and overnight trips. Overnight campers must stay at one of the area's designated wilderness camp sites. A permit is required.

The Ottawa National Forest contains five trails that feature interpretive signs explaining the sights and sounds along the way. All are 1 to 2-1/2 miles in length and are easy walking. They are located at the Watersmeet Visitor Center in Watersmeet, the Beaver Lodge Trail at the Bob Lake Campground, the Lake Ottawa Campground in Iron River, the Deer Marsh Interpretive Trail at Lake Ste. Kathryn and a trail at the Norway Lake Campground.

Short trails to waterfalls and scenic vistas are located at Sturgeon Falls and Silver Mountain, north of Sidnaw; Wolf Mountain, east of Wakefield; Yondota Falls, north of Marenisco; Kakabika Falls between Marenisco and Watersmeet and O-Kun-de-Kun Falls on US 45 north of Bruce Crossing. There are numerous other short hikes to waterfalls and vistas on the Ottawa National Forest. For information on these opportunities, contact the District Ranger Office nearest the desired area. The Norway Lake, Teepee Lake, Perch Lake, and Lake Ste. Kathryn campgrounds also feature short lakeshore trails. A 1/2 mile trail at Brule Lake features the Stateline Historic Treaty Tree Site. Nearby, the Ge-Che & Hagerman-Brule trail doubles as a winter cross-country ski route.
