Mountain Biking in Saint Ignace, Mackinac County, Michigan USA

Trail length:
45km/28mi
Trail Type:
dirt/gravel
Season:
May to October
Saint Ignace, located in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, is the second-oldest city founded by Europeans in Michigan and the third oldest continuously inhabited city in the U.S. Inhabited by Native Americans, Europeans and rich in history, it is mostly known for its ferry service to Mackinac Island and as being the home to Straits State Park. Furthermore, the Huron Boardwalk, a number of waterfront parks, the virgin beaches and the St. Ignace – Trout Lake Trail make St. Ignace a great vacation destination for all.

The trail from Saint Ignace to Trout Lake stretches approximately 45 km/28 mi long and is mostly dirt/gravel. Though the trail is mainly used for snowmobiling, it is ideal for mountain biking in summertime as well. The trailhead is on Marquette Street (near the Little Bear East Arena) and ends in Trout Lake (located off of M-123) about 0.5 mi/0.8 km from the railroad crossing. 

The trail passes among wetlands, woodlands and open green spaces along a corridor, which is remote in many places. It also passes through a very small town called Moran that has a couple of stores and a gas station. Trout Lake is an agricultural small town, where you can find a small grocery store and a few restaurants. Outside of St. Ignace, the trail is gravel/dirt, but in the last few miles near Trout Lake, it becomes a dirt trail.
