Eighty-eight miles of
non-motorized trails pass through some of the best grouse habitat on the
Chippewa National Forest. These areas move through small, well-distributed
timber stands and openings to provide the different aged forest habitat on
which many game animals thrive. The trails are mowed periodically to help
maintain vegetation and food sources utilized by wildlife during the fall
season. In addition to offering excellent grouse and deer hunting
opportunities, these trails also provide excellent hiking, cross-country
skiing and wildlife viewing opportunities throughout the year.
