Find Your Way – MichiganTrailMaps.com

It’s winter but don’t go hibernating on us. There is no need to. In our winter 2023 coverage, we have found tons of activities to get you out in the woods. Grab your cross-country skis and make Treetop’s delightful Skiable Feast the centerpiece of a weekend at the Gaylord Resort. This event is where you ski to eat, gliding from one trailside buffet table to the next.


We’ve also compiled the best vineyards, breweries, and Nordic centers where recovering from your ski or snowshoe trek – with great food, a fine glass of Michigan wine, or a cold micro-brew in front of a warm fire – is the best part of the day.

Need a thrill in the middle of February? There’s none better or faster than rocketing down a track at the Muskegon Luge Adventure Sports Park in Muskegon State Park. Our main correspondent Jim DuFresne tells us why.

Between all these winter outings, start planning next summer’s adventures by checking out all our books and trail maps in our e-shop. Spring will be here sooner than you think. So wherever you’re headed this year, MichiganTrailMaps.com is here to help you Find Your Way.
