There are more than 13,000 miles of state-designated trails and pathways in our state, making Michigan home to one of the largest, interconnected trail systems in the country. This inviting network - and the associated quality of life, health and economic benefits it offers - is fueling Michigan's drive to be known nationally as the "Trails State." The trail system offers ample opportunities for bicyclists, hikers, ORV riders, cross-country skiers, snowmobilers, horseback riders and more.

Thanks to $250 million in federal relief funding from the Building Michigan Together Plan, we're making even more headway! To help you track our progress, we've put together an interactive map identifying proposed project locations, details and status of those projects, plus FAQs and a photo gallery.
