This is a “challenge” ride and not for the faint of heart. Although the terrain is mostly flat, the surface varies greatly including gravel, loose soil and sand, with seasonal wet spots. Off-road riding experience is recommended. Helmets are required. Prepare to cover up and carry bug spray as the trail traverses forested and marshy areas. Event covers about 17 miles.
In the North.
Tour the Tawas Point Lighthouse, Tawas, Every Tuesday 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm. August is the last month of this event. This is also a Monarch Butterfly spot. Visitors are free to tour the lighthouse, ask questions, and climb the tower. A Recreation Passport is required to enter the State Park.
North Central. Wilderness Destination of the week. Lost Twin Lake Pathway
The Lost Twin Lakes Pathway has features that few other local trails can match. This trail has remained relatively unknown due to its remote location off a gravel road. The trail is in part of the Au Sable State Forest. The loop runs a bit over 3 miles. There are century-old white pines that survived the lumbering days. Some of these pines are as much as five feet around. In addition, there are ridges, sinkholes, wetlands and swamps and those small lakes from which the pathway gets its name.
