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.

Once you find a sign and understand the rectangular shape of the loops, you'll be fine. Signage is minimal but it is definitely marked. I went just before the fall colors typically arrive so I can't speak to the aesthetic of the trail with regards to beauty, but for the most part the trail in wide and mostly flat (although be aware - when the elevation does change, it does drastically!)

Walked a 3rd of the loop. Very peaceful forest trial. Spotted mushroom and a colorful fall walk. Also a very open trail for bikes. It was as if I was the only one there.
