Trails - Michigan Back Roads

Many of the trails listed here are easy walking trails based on my book "Trails & Treasures".  Others have been chosen because of a particular beauty or some unique characteristic.  Michigan hiking trails and river trails not only add a natural beauty to a Michigan "up north" vacation, they also help us preserve our nature areas and redevelop abandoned areas like disused railroad beds. Hiking, ATV/ORV and Snowmobile trails bring the beautiful wilderness areas of Michigan within reach for most everyone. Some links go to
