Michigan’s natural beauty, diverse terrain and changing seasons create unforgettable hiking all throughout the state.
The hiking trails of Michigan lead us through old-growth forests. They guide us to waterfalls. They usher us to the tops of mountains, back across time and down through urban canyons. All skill levels are welcome – take your time and enjoy the views, test your endurance on trails that are truly epic, or jump on the Iron Belle Trail, the longest designated state trail in the nation.
Here we can hike more than 220 miles on the Shore-to-Shore Trail that connects Lake Huron and Lake Michigan. Or do a day hike on any breathtaking section of the North Country National Scenic Trail. Let’s walk among the giants that remind us that there are bigger things in life than us. It’s time to lace up our hiking boots, because in this part of the world, any given pathway will point us to Pure Michigan.
