This trail has a trailhead and parking area located on M-179 (Chief Noonday Road) in Yankee Springs.

Also, part of the Chief Noonday Trail (about the southern 60%) runs concurrently with the North Country Trail (a national scenic trail).

Picture information

I hiked the entire trail in both directions. Picture order is given from the M-179 trailhead.
