Amazing! Beautiful riding country! Can't wait to go back!

This was my first visit to Manistee National Forest. A buddy and I made a spur of the moment decision to go. We hiked for about two hours before making camp. From what we saw, the trail was well marked and clean. We had no problems with mosquitos, ticks, or any other bugs. We noticed at night, there was complete silence. No tree frogs croaking or crickets chirping A very peaceful and pleasant overnight trip. Will be visiting again.

Beautiful trail. Started at Red Bridge.

This was nicer, on the side opposite the trail head in the parking lot, prettier, longer, and much more to see and more challenging. I was disappointed to find the trail head dead end into a road shortly into the hike. There is a fork on the other side of the trail, that made me a little nervous. It wasn't marked and I didn't want to get lost...I was alone. I Was getting tired anyway, so I turned back around. I'll take this trail again, but start on the North side of 20.

Well maintained and nice ride. Has some rolling hills and some sandy parts to watch out for, but not technical at all. I'd rate it beginner flow but intermediate climbs with some fast decent.

Evening the most difficult hikes are not bad. Great hike for a few hours on an afternoon. Very quiet.

This is not a walking trail even though it says so in the description. And there are no hiking trails in Scottville per the locals. It looks like a gorgeous river for fishing and canoeing/kayaking though.

really awesome, we saw a fawn and a bunch of small animals. there were some pretty flowers and really pretty scenery. 10/10 will hike again. (just make sure you bring big spray!)
