HUNGERFORD NATIONAL FOREST - Construction Update (June 9, 2020)

Entrance to the campground and main Day Use parking are now OPEN!!  Road construction will continue just beyond day use parking up to 12 Mile road.  Group Campground will remain closed until construction is completed!  As road construction continues, we request that riders avoid crossing large down trees or debris.  If you encounter large trees, please go around.

The Day Use Parking on 13 Mile is also open for riders who prefer to access the trail system on the Northern section of Hungerford Trails.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Hungerford National Forest - Covid-19 Update (April 23, 2020)

Update from USFS:

The Huron-Manistee National Forest is delaying the opening of all of our campgrounds and recreation sites “until further notice”.  This was done to make sure that we can align with the state closure and be able to adapt to any future changes.  As of right now we are hopeful that we will be able to have everything open by Memorial Day but this will depend on state and federal guidelines as we move forward.  We know this is not the news that everyone wants to hear, but we need to take the health and safety of the public and our employees into account.

The contractor that was doing the “daylighting” (road clearing and widening) along the road was deemed non-essential and has stopped operations until the state order is lifted or lessened.  This will delay the completion of the project but when they return, they will finish south to north so that we can get access to the campground and have it opened as soon as possible.  Until that time the parking area on 13 Mile will be the best option to access the trail system.

As we get closer to opening and are making progress, we will be sure to keep Hungerford guests informed.  

Thank you for your support and patience.

Road Work at Hungerford

Image result for announcement clipart

Hungerford Information from Forest Service:

Wanted to give HTRA a heads up that we will have a contract going for brushing and widening on Skiberian Road that will be done over the winter. This will be from where it goes to gravel from pavement near the Mountain Bike Trailhead and continue to 12 Mile.

They are hoping to start once the ground freezes (mid-December 2019 or January 2020) and the road will be closed due to equipment operating and sawyers dropping trees for approximately 2 months. When the widening is completed the entire road will be graded in the spring prior to the Camp Ground opening.

We are doing the brushing and widening to prepare for the eventual paving of the road when funding becomes available. When I know more on exact dates I will be sure to share it!
