Wexford/Manistee county line at Hodenpyl Dam Pond to the Lake/Newaygo county line west of M-37
The Spirit of the Woods Chapter conducts meetings, outings, hikes, events and trail workdays. Since most of our miles are in the Manistee National Forest, our work days are often coordinated with the U.S. Forest Service and take place in forested areas. You can find us smoothing the Trail, cutting fallen trees or creating boardwalk. Save the first Saturday of every month to come with us on a hike (or snowshoe or ski during the winter). In February we host a Chili Feed at the Big M Cross Country Ski Area in the heated shelter, and cross-country skiing or snowshoeing at Big M. On the first Saturday in June, we celebrate National Trails Day. In late September (fourth Saturday) join us for North Country National Scenic Trail Day. Participating is a fun and educational experience for people of all ages and outdoor skill levels. Join us for social outings and trail work – all are welcome!
