The Western Upper Peninsula of Michigan

Get away from the everyday and reconnect with the wild inside of you. Come to the western most corner of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Embrace our endless rivers and countless waterfalls, clean and clear and fresher than you ever knew. Discover Lake Superior, mighty and proud. Find yourself in the wandering trails through mystic old growth forests deep in The Ottawa National Forest.

With its boundless, unspoiled wilderness, breathtaking vistas, rugged terrain and pristine waters, the Western U.P. lets you unplug from the ceaseless distractions of daily life. Located as far west as you can go in Michigan, it is within a few hours drive of cities in northern Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin, giving you and your family a perfect path to reconnect with nature.

Whatever trail you choose to follow, your outdoor adventure starts at Michigan’s Trailhead.
