Summer in Presque Isle County!
The Spirit of Ocqueoc Falls!
People who enjoy recreation in a forest setting should find something to their liking in the Black Mountain Recreation Area. From the traditional pursuits of hunting and fishing, to camping, skiing, hiking, horseback riding and snowmobiling, outdoor enthusiasts will find their pleasure here!
The Black Mountain Recreation Area offers a vast network of marked trails for skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling. With over 30 miles available for cross-country skiing and 80 miles for snowmobiling, the area is ideal for any winter adventurer! Special pathways have been constructed for the traditional diagonal skier and the skate-skier. Pathways range from “Easy” to “Most Difficult”. Skiers may find themselves gliding under majestic pines, taking in views of Black Lake and, under the right conditions, even getting a glimpse of Lake Huron. Trail users travel through a number of forest types and are able to see what a managed forest looks like in its various stages of regrowth. Four separate parking lots provide skiers and hikers access to the pathway loops which best suit their abilities or interests.
