The Ge-Che Cross-Country Trail weaves around three lakes, Hagerman, Brule and Ottawa, in the U.S. Forest Service’s Ottawa National Forest in southwest Iron County. Ge-Che (“Big Lake” in Ojibwa) was named for Lake Ottawa. The trail totals 10.8 km over gentle and rolling terrain and connects Lake Ottawa with Hagerman Lake across the road. A couple of loops are classified as expert but are easily avoided by those with lesser skills. The trail is groomed by the nearby Covenant Point Bible Camp, which is the recommended trailhead for skiers. The trailhead at Lake Ottawa is not plowed, but fishermen do put the snow blade down on occasion. There is no trail fee but donations are welcome. Trail maps are available at the Covenant Point trailhead. Call Covenant Point (906) 265-2117 for more information.
