Michigan's Sunrise Coast

“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.
