Lumberman's Monument Auto Tour Professional Review and Guide
"This drive begins and ends just west of Tawas City, which is located on the eastern coast of the lower peninsula. The drive, a 68-mile loop, takes you through broadleaf forests, a red pine plantation, and stops at several monuments including the stunning Lumberman’s Monument, a tall bronze sculpture depicting the “river rats” who drove logs down the mighty Au Sable River. You also visit serene Iargo Springs, a fresh spring that percolates water from the forest floor right into the Au Sable River.
You end the loop drive by proceeding through Tuttle Marsh, a wetland dedicated to the preservation of waterfowl and wildlife habitats. Special attractions: Corsair Recreation Area, Lumberman’s Monument, Canoe Racer’s Monument, Iargo Springs, Au Sable River, Foote Dam Overlook, and Tuttle Marsh.
