and Ishpeming area
The Country Village Resort is located at the heart of Marquette County's excellent trail system. Many from this area take the 16 mile trek west from Ishpeming to Clowry. From here they connect with the Burma Trail (Trail 5) and continue their long journey north to historic Big Bay near the Huron Mountains. Trails through the Laurentian Uplands, including Marquette Mountain and the Huron Mountains near Big Bay, supply the type of rugged riding many are seeking. Others may choose to travel deep into the tranquil forest lands.
South of Marquette, Trail 8 takes a trek along the east branch of the Escanaba River to Gwinn where it turns to the east and continues on to Munising on the beautiful shores of Lake Superior.
A popular summer attraction at Munising, the magnificent Pictured Rocks National Shoreline, is a favorite winter stop to view the massive ice formations as they enhance the natural beauty of this shoreline. East of Munising, Trail 8 joins with Trail 417 to head north to the Au Train Trail providing another opportunity to view the awesome beauty of Lake Superior. Follow trail 417 back to Ishpeming.
Riders seeking serenity look forward to a trip on Trail 7 south of Munising into the peaceful surroundings of the Hiawatha National Forest. Tree stumps with a foot of snow on top that look like large mushrooms and snow-laden tree branches adorn the trail for miles.
From the Country Village Resort, you may snowmobile anywhere in the Upper Peninsula. Head west for the Keweenaw Peninsula, Ironwood, Ontonagon and Baraga or ride east to Munising, Grand Marais, the Pictured Rocks and the majestic Tahquamenon Falls near Paradise. You can travel all the way across the Upper Peninsula on the interconnecting trail system. The Country Village Resort is one of the central hubs for snowmobile travel and the best snowmobiling destination in the Upper Peninsula.
The Country Village Resort extends a warm welcome to snowmobilers to come explore and enjoy the beauty the area has to offer.
