Cross-Country Ski Trails

Corsair Trail is one of the Midwest’s finest cross-country ski trail systems. It offers opportunities for skiers of all levels – and provides a unique opportunity to view a Michigan winter from the depths of the Huron National Forest. Over 26 miles of trails and loops flank Monument Road. There is skiing to fill a few hours or an entire weekend!

The network of trails known as the Corsair Trail has three trailheads, each about seven miles northwest of East Tawas. The Corsair Picnic Area is on the west side of Monument Road; Wright’s Lake is off Tuttle Road, which is on the east side of Monument Road; and Silver Valley, also on the east side of Monument Road. There are parking areas and pit toilet facilities at each of the trailheads.
