The Escanaba Trails have a wilderness feel as they pass through beautiful Northwoods forests and past pristine lakes.  The Escanaba Lake trailhead is the primary starting point for most excursions.  The Pallette lake trailhead provides closer access to Pallette Lake, which has a sandy swimming beach and four walk-in campsites on its shore.  An additional swimming hole can be found on Lost Canoe Lake, accessible via the red and blue trails,  a half mile west of the connector trail to the nearby Lumberjack Trails. A lean-to shelter with benches and a campfire ring can be reached by all of the trails.
