Trail Distance:

9 miles (11.7 kilometers).

Bruno's Run

Description:

This is an easy to moderate trail with some short steep hills.

Trailheads are at:

  • Pete's Lake Campground, 15 miles from Munising on FR-2173
  • Widewaters Campground, 17 miles from Munising on FR-2262
  • Moccasin Lake Rest area 14 miles from Munising on FH-13.

Nearby Forest facilities are at Pete's Lake Campground, Widewaters Campground, Island Lake Campground and Moccasin Lake Rest Area.

The Bruno's Run Trail offers a 9-mile (14.48 Km) loop ideal for hiking and mountain biking in spring, summer and fall and snowshoeing in winter.

Although the trail is not groomed in winter for cross-country skiing, it does offer a suitable course for experienced skiers who prefer to break their own way. Ski only to your ability.

Located about 11 miles south of M-28 and the community of Wetmore, the trail may be reached from the north or the south via FH-13. Bruno's Run Trail may be accessed from both the Widewaters and Pete's Lake campgrounds as well as from FH-13 at Moccasin Lake and FR-2173 at Grassy Lake. Limited parking is available at each site.

Winding its way past a host of small lakes etched in this relatively new glacial plain, the trail runs over foothills, along overlooks and through valleys. The many lakes and streams in the area and its variety of trees and other plants make it likely that those traveling the trail will spot wildlife or signs of their coming and going. If you are alert, you are sure to have an enjoyable outing.

Permits are not required for camping along the trail or for camp fires. Please be careful with fire and leave the trail as you would like to find it--free of litter and other evidence of human presence.

The Trail Segments

  • Moccasin Lake to Pete's Lake Campground (1.36 Mi/2.2 Km) - Beginning at a scenic point overlooking Moccasin Lake, the trail moves east from Forest Highway 13 to the campground north of Pete's Lake.
  • Pete's Lake to McKeever Lake (1.35 Mi/2.2 Km) - The trail winds between Pete's lake and Grassy Lake, generally following a route parallel to Forest Road 2173.
  • McKeever Lake to FR 2258 (2.06 Mi/3.28 Km) . A small bridge allows crossing of a stream south of McKeever Lake. Rolling hills on the western part of this segment provide some of the most scenic terrain on the trail. Dipper Lake and Wedge Lake may be viewed from overlooks along the way.
  • FR 2258 to Widewaters Campground (1.41 Mi/2.3 Km). After crossing Forest Highway 13 and the Indian River, the trail runs northwest to Fish Lake, where a bridge provides a stream crossing near the campground.
  • Widewaters Campground to Moccasin Lake (1.12 Mi/1.7 Km) - This short segment includes rolling country that travels over an old logging grade and through a dense stand of mature hemlock called the "Hemlock Cathedral." The round-trip ends at the trail access point at Moccasin Lake.

Trail Safety

The trail is for people only. Horses and motorized vehicles are not allowed. Be aware of changing weather conditions and personal fatigue which can increase the hazards of the out-of-doors. Use the "buddy system" to make your outing safer and more enjoyable. Biting and stinging insects can be unpleasant, especially in spring and summer months; bring along insect repellent.
