East of Vanderbilt in the Pigeon River Country State Forest, the popular Shingle Mill Pathway begins at the Pigeon Bridge Campground located just off Sturgeon Valley Road eleven miles east of the village of Vanderbilt. Heading NE along the east bank of the Pigeon River, the trail actually branches off into five separate segments of different lengths, ranging from short 3/4 and 1&1/4 strolls to 6, 10, and 12 mile excursions, the latter three crossing to the west bank of the river at the Pigeon River Campground, and eventually bringing the hiker or skier back to the Pigeon River Bridge on Sturgeon Valley Road.
Overall, Shingle Mill Pathway is the 11th most popular hiking trail of all 32 hikes in Michigan.
