The US Forest Service says, "The Midland to Mackinac Trail, a historic 210-mile Native American footpath, has been restored by members of the Boy Scouts' Auburn-based Lake Huron Area Council No. 265 and other volunteers. The hiking and cross-country skiing trail stretches from Midland County to Mackinaw City at the tip of Michigan's Lower Peninsula.
For hundreds of years, this trail was used by Native Americans as a seasonal path for hunting, trapping and gathering foodstuffs.
The trail is relatively isolated, passing through parts of only two communities -- Cheboygan and Mackinac City. With few organized campsites along the way, hikers and riders are urged to carry water."
