Bergland to Sidnaw Rail-Trail Description

There’s no need to hold your breath along the Bergland to Sidnaw Rail-Trail while teetering across steep land bridges or crossing the impressive trestles that tower over streams and rivers because the spectacular views will take your breath away. You will be rewarded with one such view about midway along this 43-mile trail as you overlook Agate Falls rushing down the rocky steps of the Middle Branch of the Ontonagon River.

The trail is also known as Trail 8 on Michigan snowmobile maps.

Bergland to Sidnaw Rail-Trail Reviews

We rode this trail a couple of weeks ago and it is labeled with signs as an ATV trail. Most of it, was okay for mountain bike riding, but there was a section of it that was pretty tore up due to the ATV travel. Since the trail is along the highway, we took a side road and rode along the highway for a few miles. The trestle bridges are pretty awesome and the view of Agate Falls is great. The park at Agate Falls is a great place to take a break as there are picnic tables and a bathroom. The park is on the other side of the highway, but there is a trail that goes under the road bridge to get there. Other than the roughness of the trail and that we shared it with a few ATV's, the trail was okay overall. We'll not do it again, however as it is no fun to ride with ATV's.
