“a huge bronze memorial to Michigan's lumbering era”

Lumberman’s Monument Visitor Center interprets the area’s colorful lumbering past. The 14-foot Lumberman’s Monument stands on a high bank with the Au Sable River providing a scenic backdrop. Learn about the industry that helped develop northern Michigan and the men who cut the timber that helped build a nation. Climb through a log jam, use a peavey, cut a wooden cookie with a cross-cut saw, and learn about the life of a lumberjack through video and displays. Hike the stairway down to the wanigan, a loggers floating kitchen, or take the short trail to the dune observation deck. Enjoy a Kid’s Day program or take a guided nature hike.

I grew up in Oscoda and never visited Lumberman's Monument because "it's for tourists." Wish I would have gone earlier. The view from the bottom is amazing, well worth the crazy hike back up those steps! The log jam is great for large group pictures too, I've been on it with about 50 other people!

If you follow the trail near the east end of the parking lot it will take you to the High Banks, which is a sandy hill face that steeply drops at least 300' from the trail to the river. It's a thrill to run down the dune but the only way up is the same way you came down.
