• Michigan has an incredible array of trails that are developed and maintained by an extensive collaboration of state and local governments, non-profits, foundations and volunteers.

    Our trail system provides access to a diverse set of outdoor recreation opportunities, including hiking, biking, snowmobiling, hunting, fishing, wildlife viewing, berry and mushroom picking and much more. Trails also help drive our economy by attracting out-of-state visitors, creating jobs, attracting new residents, assisting in placemaking, increasing property values and connecting people to our natural resources.
