Cyclists can now travel easily between Land o Lakes, Wisconsin and Watersmeet, Michigan. 

The Agonikak Trail cuts through the Ottawa National Forest. 

The 12-mile stretch was originally built for snowmobiles but had been neglected over time. It’s now been upgraded to a compacted gravel surface

Alan Piel, Michigan Director of Wilderness Lakes Trails, says the trail’s location made it an appealing choice for restoration.
