Activities: hiking



The Huron-Manistee National Forests are 976,043 acres of public lands across the northern lower peninsula of Michigan. With many recreation opportunities for visitors, habitat for fish and wildlife and resources for local industry there is something here for everyone. What was once called ''the land that nobody wanted'' is home and host to several unique features of Michigan and the Great Lakes area. The Huron side is home to the rare and endangered Kirtland`s warbler, while the Nordhouse Dunes are located on the Manistee side. The Forest Service is caring for and managing these lands for today`s and future generations.
 
    We encourage you to use and enjoy the many recreation opportunities on the Forests.

Several trails and areas on the National Forests provide an overnight backpacking experience. The North Country National Scenic Trail, Big
 ''M'', Nordhouse Dunes Wilderness Trail, Midland to Mackinaw Trail and Shore to Shore Trail are all marked trails that provide overnight hiking experiences. For those wishing to test their orienteering skills, the Nordhouse Dunes Wilderness Area and the Semi-Primitive Nonmotorized Areas are overnight hiking experiences, without trails. Many trails offer a day hike experience, such as the North Country National Scenic Trail, Manistee River Trail and Big ''M'' trails. Several campgrounds have nature trails, including Lake Michigan Recreation Area and Bear Track Campground.
