Winter lovers will truly enjoy the solitude of the forest as the snowflakes flutter softly to the ground. Get out those snowshoes and plod through the woods, go cross-country skiing on the back roads or some of the nearby trails, or for those who want speed, there are miles of snowmobile trails that head up towards Munising and the many trails in Alger County. Snowmobiles can be rented at the Forest Glen General Store nearby.
