From the settlement era of the 1800's, up until the sixties, trails into the forest were rough tracks, made by loggers,& used by the townfolk to get into their hunting camps. Trapping, hunting, recreation ... people in the north had a real joy of life, and loved getting outdoors and away from the hard work of life in a small northern town.
Since the colonization period, the building & maintenance of fire & logging roads has opened up the forests for greater ease of travel. Now, an extensive network of trails exists, maintained by the loggers, area snowmobile clubs, private landowners and a vast number of volunteers.
