MLS# 1129404 Property Type: Vacant Land Active
160-ACRE MICHIGAN WOODED RECREATIONAL PROPERTY FOR SALE! This tract is located in Meyer Township in northwestern Menominee County, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan! It can be found just a mile north of the main east-west US-2 Corridor which runs along the southern edge of the Upper Peninsula. Immediately to the south is the unincorporated village of Cunard, named after a lumber company foreman who in the late 1800s sold cut-over lands to Swedish farmers. Just a mile to the east, a thriving company town named Hermansville was founded in 1878 because of the abundant native cedar and pine growing in the area. A saw and shingle mill prospered there and over 200 Company-owned dwellings were built around it for employees and their families. By the end of World War II the village's homes were all privately owned, and the Village continues to serve as the Township seat. There are year-round outdoor activities available on the property, and in every direction from the property being offered for sale! The parcel is enrolled in the Michigan Commercial Forest Act Plan, and thousands of acres of adjoining lands are also enrolled in this program, that allow you hunt, trap, and fish in season. But you may never have to leave the property offered for sale, because the topography is ideal for consistent tracking of its Whitetail. Deer travel along the woods trail, between different types of terrain - woodlands and some lower wet lands along the Little Cedar River which traverses the property. Some low ridges that overlook small dips also provide deer with bedding places where they can watch for danger below. Other wildlife species available on the property are waterfowl, black bear, grouse, and turkey. If you enjoy snowmobiling or ATV'ing, Michigan Trail Number 2 is a few miles north of the property. It connects to Trails 16 further to the north, Trail 115 to the west, and to Trail 331 to the east. The Escanaba to Hermansville Rail Trail, follows the former Soo Line Railroad, and offers non-motorized Mountain Biking, Walking, Horse Riding and X-Country Skiing. It is also open to all-terrain vehicle (ATV) riders and snowmobilers. It offers a heavily wooded ride with scenic overlooks from three bridges. You can jump on this trail in nearby Hermansville, and go 25.5 miles to its end near the Upper Peninsula State Fairgrounds in Escanaba. For anglers, Menominee County offers several lakes, the Menominee River which forms the boundary between the northeast corner of Wisconsin and the southern tip of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and miles of Lake Michigan frontage along its eastern border.
