The farther we moved along the trail the more dramatic the scenery became. I would of never of believed that something so close to home could be so amazingly beautiful.

Highbanks Trail is a linear trail system along the AuSable River Valley with scenic back-country views of the river from the bluffs on the south shore.  The trail is 7 miles long, ungroomed and camping is not permitted.  Visitors enjoy the abundant wildlife and may spot a majestic bald eagle.  The trail begins 15 miles west of Oscoda with stopping points and parking at Lumberman's Monument, Canoer's Memorial, Sid Town and Iargo Springs.  Highbanks is open year-round and there is no fee required to use this trail.
