North Country National Scenic Trail is a 3.2 mile out and back trail located near Petoskey, Michigan. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for hiking and snowshoeing. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
Access from the seasonal road (I parked right outside the entrance). Decent for a short out and back hike (went in mid-September). On the easier end of moderate, especially considering the total out and back distance. The trail is indeed narrow just as another user stated, but is definitely traversable on the sides of the trail (mostly just overgrown light brush). A bit wet in spots but definitely not sloppy.
Very nice trail, although a bit rough and narrow today for snowshoeing. Welsh Rd is seasonal, so you can't turn in during the winter. No problem though as I parked on Harmon and it was just a short walk to the trail. Don't miss where the NCT leaves the road and goes to the right (like I did:)
lovely trail with some nice berries and mushrooms right off trail. Lots of ticks for the dogs so be sprayed double time. all in all great place for dogs, fall has no bugs. hit trail in late summer or fall.
