Great Grayling fishing-huge size. Mountain bike trail is a 6-mile climb, 6-mile downhill. Good trail for kids doing their first mountain trail. Stop when tired, take a break and all downhill from there.

Crescent Lake trail takes you from the parking lot at the end of Quartz Creek Road to a wonderful alpine lake. The trail is 6 miles one way. It is a steady but never steep climb that crosses Quartz Creek on a safe and secure...More
