McNearney Trail Professional Review and Guide

"In the Far Eastern Upper Peninsula, farmlands have replaced most of the forest that once covered the area, but when there is some, it’s made the most of, and such is the case here. The trail is located on a series of ancient Lake Superior (geologists call this glacial-age water body Lake Algonquin) sand dunes.

There are some huge hardwoods here, many more than 150 years old. There’s also a white spruce plantation through the valleys between the hills. Pull into the parking lot and you’re already immersed in some U.P. history. The lot was the site of Camp 4, a turn-of-the-19th-century logging camp that one of the loops is named for. Surface quality: Groomed and single track set regularly, averaging once a week."

Thanks to lots of lake-effect snow, trails are in great shape! Lately, they've been groomed 2 times per week. A great place to get away from other people and enjoy quiet tranquility. This trail is not flat and straight, but winding and rolling. Big snowy trees, little critter tracks, and a crackeling fire in the warming cabin...It just don't get any better. We love Winter!
