“Michigan's First Rails To Trails: Celebrating 50 Years”

In 1969 there were no Rail Trails in Michigan until the folks in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula banded together to make the old Superior Railroad line into the first one and by 1970 it was a reality. 2020 is the 50th anniversary and we will bike, ATV, snowmobile, and ride on horseback to discover the beauty and history traveling from Lake Superior to Lake Michigan on Michigan’s first Rails to Trails.

“Our Favorite Hikes on the Sunrise Coast” part 2

We continue our favorite Hikes with more miles of backpacking and day trip trails that reach as far as you desire to travel on foot into the Huron National Forest woods, where an excellent system of shelters and tent sites offer backpackers plenty of possibilities for exploration. Step away from the paved roads and onto the trail and you’ll soon find plenty of quiet and solitude as well as deer, eagles and loons.

Michigan's Upper Peninsula

“Wilderness Waterfalls” part 1

The U.P. is home to all but one of Michigan’s waterfalls. There are more than 200 falls scattered across the U.P., ranging in size from under 5 feet to 48+ feet vertical drops. Almost all require hiking to reach, and all are worth the hike. Some of the hikes are a lot harder than others but as you will see today the hikes are half the fun.
