Gogebic Ridge Hiking Trail.  Merriweather and Bergland.  On M-28 in Merriweather, turn north on Forest  Road 250 and drive 1.1 miles to a sign marking the trailhead.  Phone: (906) 884-2411. 7.5 linear miles, plus short  loop near Weary Lake. This 8-mile  linear hiking trail is a great reason to leave the sidewalks  and pavement behind. The trail begins by skirting along  Weary Lake, and then pauses at a rock ledge overlooking  Lake Gogebic. The rock ledge is known locally as Trap  Hills and is one of the longest and tallest cliff faces  in Michigan. The view from the top is well worth the  hike. Parts of this trail closely follow the Lake Gogebic-Iron  River Indian Trail that was used more than 100 years  ago. It bends and winds through rolling hills of mixed  hardwood and conifer trees before intersecting the North  Country National Scenic Trail.

Little Trap Falls, Anderson Creek, 6.5 miles north of Bergland.
