Located in the Central Upper Peninsula of Michigan, 2 miles east of Rapid River and about 150 north of Green Bay, Wisconsin.
The trail takes a pleasant route over mostly flat to rolling forest land. On the south end, hikers will find plantations of red and jack pine; as they travel north, the forest turns to aspen and northern hardwoods, which are spectacular in the fall. Much of the trail follows the edge of the Witefish River valley, and hikers are rewarded with intermittent views of the valley and river below. The Bay de Noc - Grand Island Trail is attractive to horseback riding and backpackers alike. Along its path are three trailheads whose facilities include camping, drinking water and ample parking for horse trailers.
