Huron National Forest is a popular destination for cross-country skiers, backpackers, hunters, and fisherman. The forest is complete with a visitor's center, camping sites, trails, wildlife areas and the Lumberman's Monument?memorializing the early loggers that inhabited the region.
The Au Sable River flows through the forest and is full of trout, salmon, bass, walleye and steelhead. The River Road Scenic Byway runs for 22 miles along the southern bank of the river, offering a closer look at the reservoirs and wildlife in the forest.
A unique attraction in the forest is the Stairway to Discovery, a nature trail that declines down a staircase toward the river. The Tuttle Marsh Wildlife Management Area features migrating birds and smaller land dwellers such as beaver, mink and muskrats.
Huron National Forest is located in Michigan's northeast corner on the Lower Peninsula and is sandwiched between Tawas City to the south and Grayling to the north.
