Western Upper Peninsula


Wisconsin/Michigan state line to the eastern boundary of Craig Lake State Park.

This is a secluded area passing by several waterfalls, lakes, rivers and streams. Although the Trail technically doesn’t travel through any officially designated Wilderness Areas, often times the rugged terrain and beautiful views will feel like wilderness.

Need to Know

There are very remote, long stretches of Trail within the Ottawa National Forest. Navigation and terrain can be challenging. Limited restocking opportunities are nearby so plan accordingly. Backcountry camping permits are required within the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park. In-person check-ins can be completed at designated check-in stations.
