It’s hard to believe but this year is coming to an end and winter is here. Just as well. In preparation for the cold months, wax up those skis, dig out the snowshoes and read why beloved Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive in Sleeping Bear Dunes is almost as popular in the winter when vehicles are banned from the roadway in our feature A Very Scenic Drive Becomes a Scenic Ski. Or read why  Jim DuFresne thinks there is no finer first ski of the season than Pine Baron Pathway near Gaylord. We’re not only constantly adding new trails and maps, but also feature a newsletter and a blog by DuFresne, one of the best known recreational outdoor writers in Michigan. You can sign up for the Trail Mix Newsletter and receive its free trail map by clicking here.

Most of all be safe, be smart and enjoy the snow!
