Flat Rock State Forest

Took a nice little walk about in this area with Snickers and Bushwacker. I had never been to the site, even though it is almost in my backyard. I knew of the region through work, just based on the resources I had sent into it for fires and lost hikers, but I never hiked myself.

I was surprised at the size of the structures that are built there. The "Million Dollar Dam" and the Skeleton Dam are massive projects made about 100 years ago. There is a lot of history in the Miner Project, and I look forward to going back and exploring more.

It is straightforward hiking, all gradual incline. The trails are shared with ATVs and snowmobiles. However, we did not see another soul the entire day. We had a nice hike in, sat around Chasm Lake, and had lunch. Next time we'll scope out the fire tower.
