North Central State Trail (Gaylord to Mackinaw City)

This beautiful 61 mile trail, newly resurfaced with crushed limestone in the fall of 2007, has become one of the premier cycling trails in the Midwest. It’s flat terrain makes for easy bicycling through an area of great and diverse natural beauty. Most users’ highlights will include the valley of the Sturgeon River and its tributaries and the section north of Topinabee along the west side of Mullet Lake. Besides the terminal towns of Gaylord and Mackinaw City, Vanderbilt, Wolverine, Indian River, Topinabee, and Cheboygan also offer plenty of amenities. The improvement to the old rail corridor was made possible by a nearly $2 million dollar federal trail enhancement grant from the Michigan Department of Transportation in 2005 and the cooperation and contributions from governments and individuals along the way.
In 2008 the trail was named as one of the top five autumn destinations in the nation by Rails to Trails Conservancy.
Distance: 61 miles
Trail Surface: crushed limestone
