Michigan is home to over 13,000 miles of trails, which makes us the #1 Trails State in the nation. Walk, hike, bike, cross country ski, and snowshoe to your next great adventure on a local, regional or state trail. Visit Pure Michigan for inspiration and the Michigan Trails directory.

Things to Do

There are so many ways to be active and our state is filled with year ’round opportunities to get moving that are no cost or low cost. Go out and play in a local, county or state park, visit your local museum, science center, historic site, conservatory or planetarium, or go stargazing or birding right in your own backyard. The possibilities are endless. Visit Pure Michigan’s Things to Do directory.
