Michigan Trail Riders Association helps develop and maintain horseback riding trails in Michigan. Results of the Association’s efforts include the Shore-to-Shore Riding and Hiking Trail which winds from Empire on Lake Michigan to Oscoda on Lake Huron. A Shore-to-Shore Riding and Hiking Trail spur goes north from the Frederic/Grayling area into the Pigeon River State Forest near Indian River and Mullet Lake.

Goose Creek Trail Camp
Located near the majestic Manistee River, this rustic campground is surrounded by tall jack pines. This state forest campground is a stop along the Shore-to-Shore Trail, a 420-mile trail system open to hiking and horseback riding, that stretches east-west from Empire to Oscoda with two additional northern and southern spur trails. Equestrian trail rider groups planning a ride may need to acquire a permit.
