Highbanks River Trail

Highbanks River Trail

A short, 7-mile hike/ski along the bluffs of the Au Sable River will provide day hikers with some of the best, and most dramatic, views of the Au Sable River. The linear trail begins 15 miles outside of Oscoda, with access areas and parking at Iargo Springs, Lumberman's Monument, and Sid Town. During the summer hikers may see bald eagles that nest in the area, along with many other wildlife that inhabit the area. During winter, snowshoers and cross-country skiers looking for ungroomed trail will find it on the Highbanks Trail.
