It’s a pretty section of trail. We cross the Smith Bridge over the Big Sauble River and go past McCarthy Lake.” A lunch break is scheduled at McCarthy Lake and hikers are encouraged to pack a bag lunch and bring their own water. For more information, go to or email Young at or call (231) 757-2205. This event is free and open to the public.
