This trail is gorgeous - and not very well known. The little brother to the Manistee River Trail but very similar and way less people and more remote.

Best hiking trail in lower Michigan.

We did a portion of this trail (about 3.5 miles) and it was a nice easy hike. Even thought it was a holiday weekend, we were the only people on the trail (that we saw). Very serene and relaxing hike.

Nice rolling hills throughout the trail.

Gorgeous forest. Ally will love it!

Used to go cross country skiing out here with my dad and sisters when we were kids. We have a good story or two about some black diamond hills and getting lost on the trail after sunset... Would like to go out here again and get my boyfriend on the trails this time. ❤❤❤

very nice trail did all 8 Miles on 9/Apr/2017 all but two trees cleared from the path. Very nice trail to have as my first trail of the year. Easy enough to follow, next time going to go through a little slower and get a few pictures.

The trail itself is slightly hard to follow in certain spots due to downed trees, but that just adds to the beauty of the area. Very large hemlock and even seedlings that have been planted by volunteer groups can be found. Easy access to the trail and restrooms off of Chase Bridge Road too!

I'm not sure how this is listed as 1.3 miles considering the signage clearly shows it is nearly 8 miles total distance (one way out and back) if accessed from M-72. There is a sign at the trailhead, although it can be accessed at other points. Some down trees In had to climb over, but that is more of a small detail rather than a gripe. Follows the Au Sable for a nice stretch and there are some decent looks at the river. I half hiked half ran these trails. I'd go back for sure.

Nice trails through the woods. Very quiet and peaceful since we pretty much had all trails to ourselves! You won't find spectacular views but an extensive trail system. We took the outer trails all around. That makes for about 12-13 miles of hiking.

Easy to find. We'll marked and mapped. Wide grassy trails. Rolling hills typical Northern Michigan forest. Hiked over six miles.

Lovely family spot. Many distances available for the hikers. Don't be afraid to check out Silver Valley across monument road from Corsair. Both are excellent.
