Upper Michigan Large Wooded Recreational Parcel for Sale! This 158+/- Acre Parcel is located in Laird Township, in south-central Houghton County, in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. This property is located adjacent to the north eastern corner of the Silver River Reserve. In the late 1940s to early 1950s, a group of avid hunters formed this reserve to promote access to outdoor opportunities for their members. Since that time sportsmen and women have enjoyed this remote, wooded area for hiking, hunting, and all-season recreational opportunities. The property being offered for sale is also bordered on the north, east and south by the Ottawa National Forest. This forest covers nearly a million acres in the western Upper Peninsula and offers all kinds of outdoor recreational activities - In Summer, fishing, canoeing, and lake kayaking are popular. In winter, the Forest welcomes cross-country skiers and snowmobilers. The North Country National Scenic Trail nearly touches the northern-eastern corner of the property. This trail spans nearly 4,600 miles and crosses seven States. In addition to the nice woodlands, this parcel has nearly a mile of Boulder Creek running across its northern end, and about a quarter mile of a tributary of the Silver River is located in its southeast corner. The Boulder joins the Silver River further to the north. The Silver then travels in a northeasterly direction and joins the Sturgeon River. The Sturgeon, a 106 mile long river, discharges itself into Portage Lake and, ultimately, into Lake Superior. The Wild and Scenic portion of the Sturgeon River, within the Ottawa National Forest, is classified as a Blue Ribbon Trout Stream. Access to all-season Trail No. 109 is less than a quarter mile from the parcel, for some great ATV riding, biking, horseback riding, and snowmobiling. Hunting for Black bear, Whitetail deer, and Upland game birds is also available here! Large accessible parcels are often hard to find - Put this property at the top of your list!
