The Courtney Equestrian Trails are a little known attraction in Northeast Ontonagon County in the Ottawa National forest. These beautiful trails lie on both sides of the West Branch Firesteel River with access points from HWY M-38 and the Dishneau road. Northeastern loops are enjoyed by cross country skiers, snowshoer’s and intersects with hiking trails. Here you will enjoy approximately 14 miles of horse trails on diverse forest landscapes that carry you through areas of hardwood, pine, mixed foliage and forest vegetation. Trails are near Courtney Lake Campground which is seasonally open to the general public but closed to horses. This is a peaceful retreat with well-marked trails cared for by MI-TRALE, local skiers and the Ottawa National Forest.
