Aid Station No. 6 (Forestville Road) at Km 9.7 (40.3, 931 feet) is located adjacent to the Noquemanon Trail Networks' Forestville Trailhead Facility, which is situated about a kilometer northwest of the point where the Forestville Road crosses the Lake Superior and Ishpeming (LS&I) Railroad tracks. Parking is available.

From the aid station, the section's highest elevation point, racers will ski a short distance before crossing Forestville Road at Km 8.9 (41.1, 872 feet).

As racers reach the Three Lake area, they'll cross the tracks of the Lake Superior and Ishpeming (LS&I) Railroad twice, once just west of the lakes at Km 8.1 (41.9, 829 feet) and once just east of the lakes at Km 7.3 (42.7, 802 feet).

Once clear of the Three Lakes area, racers will ski along the north side of the LS&I tracks for 2.0 km before crossing them one final time at Km 5.3 (44.7, 702 feet).

Another short ski will bring racers to Aid Station No. 7 (Dead River), the section's lowest elevation point, at Km 4.3 (45.7, 644 feet), which is located about 300 meters southwest of County Road 550, the Big Bay Road. Parking is available.
