It isn't just cross country skiing, the Corsair Trail system is perfect for the casual hiker as well. The lure is the forest itself, the deep snowfalls, and the clean fresh air.

There are amazing scenic views from such spots as Silver Valley, Iargo Springs, Corsair, and the Lumberman’s Monument. At the Au Sable Highbanks, you can see clear across the AuSable River Valley and watch snowstorms advancing 20 miles away.

In any season, take the beautiful River Road along the AuSable River and follow the signs to the Lumberman's Monument. This is where Monument Road begins; cruise along for just a couple of miles and you will come to the trailhead parking area.
