This would be a beautiful trail if not for the excessive mosquitos and flooded out trails. 1.75 miles in the path is so flooded that you cannot reach ‘the point’. The campsites looked great though and I saw plenty of snakes which was enjoyable. Was able to hear the eagles, but no sightings. Be careful of the plentiful poison ivy directly off of most of the trail.

Been going up there for most my life for hunting season. Always take pleasure in exploring the forest. As of this year the DNR are stepping up and enforcing the rules. I have no problem with this since I don't break the law when it comes to hunting on public land. Love that car noise is non existent and the sound of lake Huron waves and the wind blowing through the pines is all you hear. May not be for everyone. Mosquitos in the summer are a given with any natural forest in Michigan. Wear appropriate gear to protect from mosquito bites and poison ivy. Rustic campground that can only be accessed on foot with backpack. Be respectful and responsible to keep one of Michigan's natural forest majestic to those who go exploring in it.

Nice wide trail with backcountry campsites along the way. You can here the waves while you’re hiking although the lake is only in view at the campsites and at the end of the trail on the peninsula. Fall colors are peaking right now!

Great short trail, had amazing camping sites and views. Camp site 4 was beautiful. The trail is longer then all trails says it is. You could do a total of 10+ Miles.

Took the trip in August, very flat and easy trail. Backpacked to campsite #2. Mosquitoes were present, varied in how bad they were. Saw two Coyotes crossing the trail near campsite #1, and a Bald Eagle flying along the shore of our campsite. A good first backpack for a beginner.

We took the lower trail - the Potawatomi. We found the trail was poorly maintained; there were multiple trees - medium to small - that had fallen on the trail, there was a fair amount of plant growth on the path, which would not have been so bad had it not been ladden with poison ivy. So much of my viewing pleasure was taken by constantly having to watch for the poisonous plant that it greatly detracted from enjoying the vistas. Additionally this trail was heavily filled with mosquitoes so be prepared for that too.
