Mountain Biking

Mountain Biking

My husband and I are looking to visit Tahquamenon Falls in August. We would like to mountain bike while we are there, but I cannot find any trails near the state park. Can anyone advise? Does the park allow biking?

Hello Perrysmom,

Welcome to the Michigan Forum.

Here is a web site that might help you out.

Trails.com

www.trails.com/activity.aspx?area=11668

I see in your other post you talk about Northern Michigan shoreline. Are you referring to the northern part of the Upper Peninsula or the northern part of lower michigan?

Thank you. Unfortunately, neither of those sites specify whether or not, biking is allowed in Tahquamenon Falls State Park...or if there are trails nearby.

As for which shoreline...eastern UP or any LP shoreline is fine.

"Bikes are allowed on all paved and non-paved roads in all 97 state parks and recreation areas. Bikes may also be operated on designated bike paths. Look for signs or ask a member of the park staff if bicycling is allowed on any trail in the State Park."

The above from the Michigan DNR website:

michigan.gov/dnr/…00.html

If you head a bit more west Marquette County is rated one of the top 5 places in the US to live and mtn bike.

A really nice trail for visitors and locals is the Harlow Lake Trail very close to Lake Superior.

In Alger county (not as far west) you could look at the Seney National Wildife Refuge. All their roads are open to biking.
