Gogebic Ridge Trail Professional Review and Guide

"If you are looking for a rugged Upper Peninsula adventure, the Gogebic Ridge Trail is for you. Built in 1977 by the Youth Conservation Corps, the trail follows a portion of the Lake Gogebic–Iron River Indian Trail used in the 1800s. Offering difficult descents and ascents, rocks, many downed trees, and route-finding challenges, the trail also has its rewards.

Most of the route rambles through pristine, dense forest with views of Lake Gogebic, the largest lake in the Upper Peninsula, and the unspoiled Ottawa National Forest. The trail is so little used that it would be a surprise to see another person, but wildlife is abundant. Tread: 9 miles of singletrack, 5.3 miles of paved road, 4.2 miles of gravel road."
