Find Your Way – MichiganTrailMaps.com

There’s been a lot of changes here at MichiganTrailMaps.com, including Jim DuFresne’s hugely popular farewell speaking tour this past winter across the state from Traverse City and Gaylord to Grand Rapids and Ann Arbor. He even dipped into Ohio for an event hosted by the Toledo Metroparks.

Despite the changes, our e-shop remains a reliable source for our best-selling guidebooks and trail maps. You can still order our popular guides to Isle Royale, the Porcupine Mountains, and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, including our new The Mainland Trails of Sleeping Bear Dunes booklet of maps.

MichiganTrailMaps.com also has more than 300 downloadable maps to paths, whether you’re a hiker, a backpacker, or an off-road cyclist. Wherever you’re headed this summer, we have a digital map from a walk in the woods to an all-day adventure on the state’s best-known and loved trails.

Our summer and fall coverage includes the newest Heritage Trail from the Michigan History Center, which was dedicated just this May. Plus, a feature focused on casual mountain biking in the Sand Lakes Quiet Area.

MTM Staff Breaks for Summer Adventures

It’s that time of year again when the MichiganTrailMaps.com staff takes their summer camping trip into the wilds of Northern Michigan. From Aug. 1-12 orders will take longer than our normal speedy service. If at all possible, please order before or after our annual summer break. Thank you for your understanding.
