Valley Spur / X-Country Skiing & Snowshoeing

Valley Spur is a favorite Alger County destination for cross-country skiers and snowshoers in the winter. The 27-mile trail system is groomed daily or as needed for both skate and classic ski from December through March. Valley spur consists of 10 loops varying in level in the Hiawatha National Forest and provides a variety of beautiful and serene scenery. Most of these loops are used for mountain bike and hiking trails in the summertime

The Snowman Snowshoe Trail at Valley Spur is a 1.8-mile loop of moderate difficulty. Since the course can be challenging
at times, it helps to have crampon style snowshoes, but it’s not mandatory. Valley Spur is located off M-94 approximately 5 miles west of Munising. A trail map is posted in the lodge at the trailhead, throughout the trail system and is also available online.
