Trails throughout the EUP
Nothing captures the peace and tranquility of nature like a hike through the woods. There are trails all over the EUP that anyone can find joy in.
North Country Trail
The North County Trail is the longest trail in the National Trails System! It stretches 4,700 miles, 122 miles of which is in the Eastern Upper Peninsula. It skirts 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 pleasant walk in nature, the Algonquin trail might be a good choice for you! This trail is located just outside of town, making it the perfect option if you’re in the mood for a quick hike. But the Algonquin Trail is a series of loops that add up to about 9 miles. So you can choose to hike a variety of lengths. The main loop is about 1.6 miles and is lit up at night. The Algonquin Trail is better know as a cross country ski trail, so if you’re here in the winter, it is also a great option!
