We will meet on Tahqua Trail Road about 0.75 miles west of M-123 on the north shore of the Tahquamenon River near the river mouth, and hike on the Trail along the river. Bring clothing appropriate for the weather, snowshoes or cross-country skis, water, the 10 Essentials, a snack, and a camera.
Distance of the hike will depend on conditions and your abilities. This will be an out-and-back hike in order to avoid carpooling. The length of the hike will be determined by you: You will be able to turn around at any time.

Tahqua Trail Road is a dirt road along the north side of the Tahquamenon River at its mouth. Take M-123 south from Paradise or north from Eckerman to get there. On the north side of the mouth of the river there is a Michigan DNR picnic area on the shore of Whitefish Bay. Tahqua Trail Road is located across M-123 from that picnic area.
