A quick day trip up to the AuSable river to Iargo Springs. This is a trail head for a 7 mile trail along the river, which we did not do, and also a boardwalk with 300 steps to get down to the back waters of the river, with plenty of natural springs at the bottom. We were about 1 week late for the best fall color, but it was a beautiful day nonetheless for myself, Mary and Alex Chevalier.
This is a beautiful lake located on the north side of M-72 a few miles east of Grayling. The only access is by foot (no vehicles or motor boats) and all the trails and the lake are on national forest land. I was there on a Saturday and only met one other person during the whole time, which was a hike that ended up around 7 miles. You can go around the lake in about 4 miles, but if you take some of the other trails and then get a little confused, well, it gets a little longer.
