If you head eighteen miles east from downtown Marquette, Michigan and take a short hop right off of State Highway M28 onto Sand River Road and then a left onto Deerton Sand Lake Road, this will take you straight across the northern portion of CLC Lands & Private Lakes, Inc.’s Sand River Acreage property. This 161-acre, hemlock/red maple-dominated piece of real estate is ideal for four-season recreation. The former DSS&A Railway grade runs across this Sand River area parcel in western Alger County. Hikers can pick up the North Country Trail less than one mile down this repurposed railroad grade. In the Winter, it is labeled Marquette/Alger County Snowmobile Trail #417, allowing for easy on/easy off access for snowmobiles. The UP 200 Sled Dog Race is routed through here every February. This property is within one and one-half miles to a sandy Lake Superior public beach access point. ATV enthusiasts, mountain bikers, hunters, or anyone who wants to own land and live twenty minutes from the largest town in the Upper Peninsula will enjoy this location.
From Marquette, head east on M28 towards Munising. Turn right onto Sand River Road. In 0.3 miles, turn left onto Deerton Sand Lake Road. In 0.8 miles, you will be on the property.
