Lying between the shores of Lake Michigan and Lake Huron in the northern half of the Lower Peninsula of Michigan, is the nearly one-million-acre Huron-Manistee National Forests..
The Huron National Forest was established in 1909 and the Manistee National Forest in 1938. In 1945, they were administratively combined, although they are not adjacent. Huron has about 44.8% of the combined area, whereas the larger Manistee has about 55.2%.
If you are looking for a quick morning jaunt or a short hike to stretch your legs, we have several trails that will fit the bill. Whether you choose a day hike on the Manistee River Trail, or a short walk between Loon Lake and Island Lake, we’ve got a trail to suit you.
