SILENT SPORTS IN THE E.U.P.
Nothing captures the peace and tranquility of nature like silent sports such as snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. Looking to get out of town? The North County Trail stretches for 122 miles in the Eastern Upper Peninsula, skirting lake shores and riverbanks, wandering through northern boreal forests, and rambling along ancient ridges. Map information for the Eastern Upper Peninsula can be found HERE. If you’re looking for a beautiful trek and a stunning U.P. attraction, venture along the North Country Trail to the Tahquamenon Falls State Park! More details HERE.
If you’re just looking for a walk in nature while visiting the Soo discover the Algonquin Trail a short drive from downtown Sault Ste. Marie. You can even escape for a nighttime ski along lamp-lit trails! One of the most important things about planning a day out in the woods is the snow conditions.
Protect Michigan trails by not using them when muddy
Riding or walking on a muddy trail destroys the surface. It leaves ruts/deep holes, uneven tire and footprints, contributes to erosion and creates a hard-to-fix trail surface. Hint: If you are leaving visible bicycle ruts, deep footprints or hoof tracks the trail is too muddy.
