We drove across the Triple A road for the first time in 20+ years only to find that the new mining operation had paved the old dirt road. We were not able to drive up to the north entrance of the McCormick Tract, as the road was totally washed out. It was 90+ degrees that day, which is unusual up there at any time of year, not to mention in late September. I'm estimating that we were within a mile to the McCormick Tract where the actual trail begins. Anyone wanting to hike inside the McCormick Tract would be better off going in on the south end entrance which is well marked and is the old road into the old buildings and lakes. It is truely one of most spectacular forests in Michigan consisting of many virgin white pines measuring easily 6-8 ft. across at the base. Well worth the effort and trip.
