• Michigan Trails Week: Sept. 19-26, 2021

    When a state has the enviable resources Michigan does - 13,000 miles of state-designated trails, thousands of miles of local, county and federally managed trails, and more rail-trail miles than any state in the nation - it's hard to keep quiet. With that in mind, Michigan Trails Week is the perfect time to hit your favorite trail or find an all-new trail adventure.

    Every mile counts:
