Northern Highland-American Legion State Forest
The NHAL has four beautifully tracked and wonderfully scenic cross-country ski trails: Escanaba, Madeline, McNaughton and Raven. State trail passes are required for these trails. Because they are tracked, snowshoes, hiking and pets are not allowed on these trails in winter.
The NHAL has nearly 400 miles of marked snowmobile trails that connect with an extensive network of county and local snowmobile club trails. These trails are all maintained and groomed by the local snowmobile clubs.
In addition to our winter trails, Lumberjack and Powell, the parking lots at Fallison, North Trout and Star Lake Nature Trails are kept plowed to provide ample opportunities. For those that don't require a trail, the possibilities are endless. But please remember, no snowshoeing on groomed and tracked ski trails.
