Corsair Ski Trails

The 8th most popular cross country ski area in Michigan.

Northwest of Tawas City, the Corsair Ski Trails are nestled in the beautiful Silver Valley area, surrounded by the 120,000 acre Huron National Forest. The Corsair system is one of the largest groomed trail networks in Michigan. The 56 kilometers of interconnecting trails cross forest and meadows, hills and valleys. They take you through sunny open vistas, into hushed stands of sweet-smelling fir and towering hardwoods, and along the edge of winding ice-locked streams.

To reach the cross-country skiing trailhead from East Tawas, head west on SR55 to Wilber Road. Follow Wilber Road to Monument Road. Turn left on Monument Road for 7 miles. There are three parking areas. First, there is the Corsair Picnic Area on the west side of Monument Road. Second, there is the Wrights Lake lot on Tuttle Road. Third, there is the Silver Valley Lot on the east side of Monument Road.

Overall, Corsair Ski Trails is the 8th most popular cross country ski area of all 49 Nordic ski destinations in Michigan.
