The Thunder Bowl at one time was a State Ski area. It is located about 85 miles S.E. of Marquette, and about 18 miles N.W. of Manistique near Thunder Lake. The best known trail near there and passes about 2 miles from it is the Haywire Trail. We stay on the Gravel road when traveling from the Haywire to Thunder Bowl. Steuben is the crossroads town ( NOT really a town...or even a wide spot in the road...just a sign), where you would get off the Haywire and travel S. to the Bowl. Stop at the Steuben store and ask directions.
