Green Timbers Management Unit
Scenic vistas, prime wildlife habitat and eight miles of Sturgeon River (10’N 34’W) frontage dominate this 6,300-acre tract on the west side of the PRC, known as Green Timbers. Purchased by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) from McLouth Steel in 1982, Green Timbers is closed to motor vehicles, including snowmobiles. This gives both people and wildlife a place without motors and provides the visitor an opportunity to enjoy some of northern Michigan’s remote backcountry.
Its trails are unmarked, so visitors are advised to carry compass and GPS or other map information. The trails range from two-tracks to barely visible, overgrown paths mainly used by elk and deer.
