Gov. Rick Snyder has declared the next seven days Michigan Trails Week to encourage folks to get out and explore the 12,000-some miles of trails our fine state has to offer. 



“Michigan’s trail system is one of our state’s real jewels,” Snyder said in a press release. “It provides unlimited recreational opportunities to people of all ages and skill levels. Being active outdoors is a great way to stay healthy and celebrate our state’s beauty and abundant natural resources."

The week is packed with trail-related events, including various kick-off celebrations, guided tours of both dirt and water trails, and even a People and Pooch hike.
