Explore Michigan’s Trailhead

We Invented Social Distancing

Come to the westernmost corner of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Explore the Porcupine Mountains, rugged and raw. 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. Here the land, the woods, the water, and the sky welcome the wild inside of you. Welcome to the Western Upper Peninsula.

Whether biking the numerous trails, loops, or single tracks; hiking through the old-growth forest, along the shores of Lake Superior, or high above the tree line; or paddling a calm inland lake, stream, or rapid river the Western U.P. is your place for outdoor recreation thrills.  Visit the over 150 majestic waterfalls that flow through the Western U.P.

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