One of the most amazing little trails in the Kettles. This is very much a real trail that winds through some wood hills.

It features a rock base and a bit of mud in the low areas. It eventually breaks off into a snowmobile and horse trail so watch for those signs.

Tree lined, packed dirt & gravel road for 2/3rds of the trail. Once you get to the logger's area, you can easily turn around, or continue for another 50 yards through the muddy ruts and stacked logs. The trail ends at a fork of smaller ATV/UTV/Snowmobile trails.
Summary: Cute, little trail that ends in a logger's clearing. There's a few muddles and a couple deeper ruts. When it's wet, the logging area can be slick/fun.

When the sled trails are open, you can't do any part of this trail.

Nice little trail, has some steeper hills that are fun if it's muddy. Not very long, but worth checking out for the scenic factor alone
