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.
Trails Advisory Council
The Michigan Trails Advisory Council advises the director of the DNR and the governor on the creation, development, operation and maintenance of motorized and nonmotorized trails.
