Great views of lake Michigan and many trails to hike. St. Francis trail is a challenging 10 mile biking trail through the woods. Very fun. Take off as bugs are really bad this year.

Great for hiking, cross country skiing and snow shoeing. Many beautiful vistas. The wild flowers in the spring are stunning, especially trillium.

We are always looking for a new hike in northern Michigan! This one is located just south of Frankfort and north of Arcadia. The hike is really enjoyable and the views at the end are just stunning.

I agree with the other reviews. This is truly one of the best views of Lake Michigan, but also one of the most beautiful trails. We had been up on Bruce Peninsula hiking and have hiked many places along lake MI....I think this is my favorite trail.

These are very popular with hikers, runners and mountain bikers on weekends but during the week you might hike for... More

Hike or bike to your hearts content. There are miles and miles of beautiful trails traversing open meadows, winding through dense woodlands, and skirting apple and cherry orchards.
