Petoskey to Mackinaw Trail

This trail consists of 35 miles of mostly dirt and cinder trail that passes through Conway, Oden, Ponshewaing, Alanson, Brutus, Pellston, Van, Levering, and Carp Lake to the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Trailhead in Mackinaw City. DNR is currently working to fill in the "gaps" in the trail between Oden and Alanson. The surface is currently "unimproved" railroad ballast and gravel. Some sections are in excellent shape while others are tough going for the cyclist. However, on balance the entire trail is bikeable with a hybrid or mountain bike. Carp Lake and Mackinaw City on the north end are especially suitable as staging areas for off trail excursions onto lightly traveled local (paved and gravel) roads, some of which connect to the Cheboygan to Mackinaw City segment of the Gaylord to Mackinaw City Trail.
