The Lumberjack Trails, on the outskirts of the small tourist town of Boulder Junction, form a scenic cluster of wild, natural paths, good for exploring the north woods in any weather. The adjoining town is small and, despite the weekend crowds, is very appealing with its rugged appearance and "old main street' buildings. The town is one of the farthest north in the Northern Highland American Legion State Forest, deep in the heart of the "land of lakes" only twenty miles from the Upper Peninsula border. The riding in this part of the state is not as much sought after for technical thrills, but instead for the pedaling at a slower, exploratory pace. The idea here is to move through the forest gracefully in an effort to quietly appreciate the surrounding area. The edges of the trail are thick with pines and stands of various hardwoods, and lakes and streams hide in many of the valleys the trails pass by. The Lumberjack Trail system consists of two smallish loops at the northern trailhead, and a long connector trail that leads to a southern trailhead near the Boulder Junction Chamber of Commerce.
