“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.

Michigan's Sunrise Coast

“OUR FAVORITE HIKES ON THE SUNRISE COAST” PART 1

One of the best ways to see Michigan’s Sunrise Coast is on foot, whether you want to tour the National Forest, take a day hike along one of the most scenic rivers in the world, stroll along a beach with your children or go backpacking along a stretch of the Lake Huron Trail. We will show you all of our favorites along the “Sunrise Coast”.

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.
