Loon Creek Trail #084


Loon Lake View

The segment of trail from Loon Lake east to the Secesh River comprises a portion of the popular Loon Lake Loop and is open to two-wheel motorized use. Heading west from Loon Lake the Loon Creek Trail #084 is unmaintained and difficult if not impossible to follow after the first mile. This portion is also designated non-motorized. Following this route less than one mile southwest from its junction with Loon Lake Trail #081 does provide access to the B-23 Bomber. In January of 1943, an Army Air Corps pilot with a crew of seven crash landed a B-23 bomber onto frozen Loon Lake after the plane, running low on fuel, experienced severe icing. The plane came to rest in the forest near the lake's shoreline where it remains today.
