If you can say Agonikak Loop Trail, you'll enjoy skiing the five mile trail located at the Watersmeet Visitor Center off U.S. 2 and U.S. 45. The trail winds through hardwoods on snow covered logging roads with rolling hills, several slopes, and a small trail bridge crossing peaceful Duck Creek.

Land O’ Lakes Bike and Pedestrian Trail Expansion Planned

Agonikak Trail Report

40 mile loop to be developed around the Sylvania Wilderness

In the winter of 2007 a group of local volunteers formed Wilderness Lakes Trails Corporation to facilitate the development of an interstate biking and hiking trail system between the towns of Land O’ Lakes, Wisconsin and Watersmeet, Michigan. Building upon the existing 8-1/2 mile Land O’ Lakes trail, the new 40-mile loop will encircle the Sylvania Wilderness providing users unique access to its pristine lakes and forests.

Once completed the Wilderness Lakes Trails system will be the premier biking and hiking destination in the Midwest. The entire project is expected to be completed within five years and cost 3 million dollars. In 2008, the project received over $500,000 in grants and public donations. For current progress information and downloadable trail maps visit www.wildlakes.org.

Volunteers Revitalize National Recreation Trail

Trail is now available for Hiking and Mountain Biking

In addition to enjoying our area’s existing 8.5 miles of paved trails, hikers and mountain bikers can now explore the recently revitalized Agonikak National Recreation Trail thanks to the efforts of 23 local volunteers. In partnership with the U.S Forest Service the trail revitalization project was part of National Public Lands Day, the nations largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance public lands. Volunteers brushed out 10.5 miles of trail and placed 30 sign posts along the path.

The northern section of the Agonikak trail is designated “wild & scenic” with some challenging hills. The southern section has a flatter topography. The trail can be accessed from four points: A. the southwest end of White Pine Drive (off US 2), B. Allen Lake Road, C. Military Road, and D. the US 45 Roadside Park. (see map at left) For a detailed downloadable map, visit www.wildlakes.org.

If you would like more information or would like to contribute to this project as a volunteer or monitarily, please contact us at info @ wildlakes.org or visit www.wildlakes.org.
