One of the longest dirt roads/trails in the Kettles. It features hills, marsh, woods, winding trails, and a lake for dog training (with parking area). 

Most of the trail turns into a snowmobile trail during the winter and wheeled vehicles are not allowed on this trail at that time. This trail is filled with potholes and downed trees line the trail.

Map listings are subject to change at any time for any reason. Please respect all property, pick up trash, report abuse and be an ethical trail advocate. Your actions speak for all of us. Trails are mapped via the Universal Trail Rating System. If you find the rating system to be wrong, please write a review to correct (send pictures if possible). 

Call your local chapter club, trail guide, or ask about trails you’re thinking of going to before you go there. Please travel with a buddy, never alone. If a trail is closed, please write a review ASAP to inform others of what you saw. Read the map listing reviews as people will post things that may aid you in your visit.

We’re all the eyes and ears of the trails so your reviews are crucial to keeping trails in open and expanding.

We recommend you carry a first aid kit, ABC automotive fire extinguisher, recovery gear and communication with you at all time when on the trail. Please take the time to ask questions and get training on vehicle and equipment use.

This is a simple gravel/dirt trail. One or two small turnouts to get a little muddy if it rained recently. Saw a few people with dogs and hikers on the road itself. Not very challenging, but let’s you see what a basic road is.

Open with one nice mud hole just off the main road. Passed some Boy Scouts walking out of some hike in campsites.

Took the F-150 through this today. Is a fun little dirt road, but nothing you're going to need 4wd for, even with ice, although that could change with more snow..
