The Lumberjack Trail is a very scenic trail winding along the edge of the Manitowish River, the Fishtrap flowage and White Sand Lake. The trail gently rolls through a variety of timber types. The surface is grass, dirt, rocks, and sand. The effort is easy to moderate. Approximately half of the trail winds through an area that was logged a few years ago. The rest of the trail is through old timber. The trail connects with the Escanaba Trail. Backpack camping is allowed along the Lumberjack, but requires a permit. The Lumberjack cross country ski trail is ungroomed.
