We WILL NOT be grooming the woods section of this trail between the Victora Road Bridge and the junction with Trail 137, so it may get bumpy.  You can follow the detour below and stay on the road instead.

DETOUR:

If you are heading West out of Rockland. Take Trail 137 right (north) at the junction just West of town. Turn left onto Victora Road (West) (I believe it is the first stop sign you will come to.) This will take you right back to the trail at the river bridge which runs part of this road.

If you are heading East to Rockland – stay on Victoria Road after you cross the river.  You will meet Trail 137 about a mile up the road. Turn right on Trail 137 and it will take you right back to 13.

If you are coming South from Ontonagon on Trail 137 and want to go west.  Take Victoria Road right (west).

Watch for the groomers, they take up most of the trail and have the right of way! Pull over for them.

Lake of the Clouds at the end of Trail 1 in the Porcupine Mountains State Park. Just a short walk from the trail, well worth the walk.
