Mason Tract Pathway

Mason Tract Pathway Professional Review and Guide

"Glide into the dense cedar, pine, and hardwood forest trail starting at the edge of Chase Bridge Road and you’ve entered some of the wildest country in Lower Michigan. But don’t worry, it’s friendly wild. Donated to the state years ago by the widow of auto magnate George Mason, the tract officially takes in 16 miles of the trout-rich Au Sable River’s South branch.

A rustic wooden WELCOME sign alongside a two-track road sometimes used by snowmobiles just north of the trail entrance sets the mood for the silence you’ll enjoy here. Relax and enjoy. The trail is state maintained in summer as a hiking path, and is single track set in winter for traditional skiers, although it may be wide enough to squeeze in an adventuresome skater alongside. Surface quality: Single track, generally skier set."

This was my first time to cross country ski last year and I just returned from a weekend trip on the trail again. I have seen very few others on this trail and it is definitely wilderness. If you like solitude and a beautiful view this is a great trail.
