  • Bridge Closure on North Country Trail

    October 2019 -- The bridge has been replaced and the trail segment is reopened


    Due to a safety hazard, Hiawatha National Forest has temporarily closed a 1.65 mile segment of the North Country Trail located between Naomikong Overlook and Shallows Day Use Area. The closure order results from damaged condition of Naomikong (aka "Mini-Mac") Bridge. 

    The remainder of the trail is open, and a 1.5 mile reroute will be signed around the closed segment. More information will be posted here as it becomes available. For additional information, please contact the St. Ignace/Sault Ste. Marie Ranger District Office at 906-643-7900.
