Big M Trail Description

The Big M Trail in Manistee National Forest is suitable for cross-country skiing, trail mountain biking, and hiking. There are actually four segments, each with varying levels of difficulty, from easiest to most difficult. The trail system winds through forests and logged stands; the largest loop is ungroomed in winter. For a detailed map, visit Manistee National Forest's map page online.

Parking and Trail Access

To reach the Big M Trail, take State Route 55/Caberfae Highway (east from Manistee or west from Cadillac) to Udell Hills Road and turn south. You'll come to a big bend west in the road and short distance later, another bend south. Just beyond the second bend, look for Forest Road 8234 on the right. Take it to trailhead parking.
