Enjoy all the Hiawatha National Forest has to offer

Soldiers Lake Day Use Area, 7 miles west of Raco, has a picnic area, changing house, and a sandy swimming beach that is great for wading in the water, swimming, or sunbathing as you enjoy the surrounding woods. This is a small lake with carry-in boats permitted but no motors. A footpath leads around the lake for an evening stroll to watch the sunset or your early morning jog.

Monocle Lake Day Use Area, north of Northwoods Trails, has a nice sandy swimming beach, hiking trails, paved boat launch and fishing pier. You might catch walleye, small mouth bass, pike, or yellow perch, delicious cooked on the grill. Monocle Lake is large enough for water skiing and other water sports and has a paved boat ramp. A two-mile hiking trail leads to an outstanding overlook where you can see all the way to the hills of Canada. The first part of the path is easy walking and takes you to a boardwalk with a wildlife viewing platform where you might see beavers building a lodge or dam or you can continue on the trail up to the high bluffs.

Fishermen will also enjoy the several nearby trout streams and the East Branch of the Tahquamenon River is a Michigan Blue Ribbon Trout Stream that is noted for Brook Trout.

Winter in the Eastern U.P. Area

Winter brings tons of snow and Northwoods Trails is right at the junction of several snowmobile trails so you can plan nice day rides in several directions and then return to your comfortable lodgings. We have Trail Maps and Don carries a variety of snowmobile parts such as belts, plugs, slides, wear bars, bulbs, etc.  The McNearney groomed cross-country ski trails are 5 miles northeast of Strong's Corner offering 4 loops through hilly, forested countryside or try snowshoeing through the peaceful forest.

Area Attractions

Northwoods Trails Cabins are conveniently located near many area attractions. Only 22 miles to Sault. Ste. Marie where you will enjoy watching the freighters go through the Soo Locks connecting the St. Mary's River and Lake Superior. You might like to take the Soo Locks Boat Tour and go through the locks on the sightseeing boat, visit the Valley Camp Freighter Museum, or stop at some of the interesting gift shops.

Point Iroquois Lighthouse Museum on Lake Superior is about 10 miles north of the cabins where you can tour the lighthouse, climb the tower, and walk a few feet down to the water where you might see a freighter passing by. Drive up to the Mission Point Overlook for an awesome view of Lake Superior and Canada. Bay Mills Casino is nearby if you want to try your luck.

A day trip towards Paradise will take you to the Whitefish Point Lighthouse Museum, the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum, the Whitefish Point Bird Observatory, and beautiful Upper and Lower Tahquamenon Falls.
