North Country Trail

The North Country Trail is a National Scenic Trail that stretches for 4,800 miles through 8 states from Vermont west to North Dakota. There are two segments of the North Country Trail that pass through Ontonagon County in Michigan’s western Upper Peninsula:

The trail passes through the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park, the Ottawa National Forest, and the Gogebic County Forest.
  • Peter Wolfe Chapter: This section of the North Country Trail stretches from M-64 to near Craig Lake State Park east of U.S. Highway 41 and passes by towns and cities like White Pine, Ontonagon, Bruce Crossing, and Rockland.
