Combine nature, an ATV and good friends and you have the ingredients of great outdoor fun.
Visiting the Hiawatha National Forest is not just about the slow walks, it can be wrapped up in a riding adventure that includes beauty of the flora and fauna on the ATV. The ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ are just a few of the sounds that surround you as you venture through the trail system on an ATV.
Many of the trails were originally old train paths that were used during the Upper Peninsula’s iron ore and lumbering booms of the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. The Haywire grade is one of those trails; the tracks have been removed but an onlooker will find old railroad spikes from days gone by. Keep looking and you may find remnants from the old iron smelting which looks like charcoal but are harder and sometimes full of colors. Let the Hiawatha National Forest surround you in an amazing adventure.
