Lumberman's Monument is U.S. Forest Service interpretive Center honoring the lumbering era. Spectacular lookouts across
the Au Sable River Valley. Magnificent 14' bronze statue of the lumbermen.
This huge bronze memorial to Michigan's lumbering era sits on a high bluff overlooking the
sparkling waters of the Au Sable River since 1932.
Interpretive signs and exhibits tell the story of moving logs from the forests to the mills.
Children enjoy climbing the log jam and using the crosscut saw. For those willing to hike 272 steps to
the edge of the Au Sable, they can board the Wanigan, a replica of the floating cook shacks that followed the river drives
during Michigan's lumbering days.
