Love hiking scenic trails? Wondering where to go hiking in Michigan?
I always wear good hiking boots to keep my ankles stable on rocky, wet, slippery or unstable ground.
We absolutely love hiking Michigan in the summer, fall and winter as the scenery is so different each time we hike! Plus, hiking is a great Michigan fall activity!
These two hiking trails in Michigan are seriously exquisite so I want to start with them. We were blown away by their beauty. We hiked during the fall so the views were extra breathtaking.
Lumberman's Monument and Highbanks Trail: 5401 Monument Rd, Oscoda, MI 48750
There are pit toilets near the camping area and flush toilets with running water at the visitors center.
12.7 mile out and back trail has outstanding views! The trail is dirt.
There is also a boardwalk that leads down to another trail. Take note, it's 500 steps! But the views were breathtaking, some of the best in Michigan. We were blown away!
Largo Springs: Largo Springs is located about 4 miles west of Lumberman's Trail so it's easy to do both in one day! The trail connects the two.
Largo Springs is an outstanding spot to hike, explore, photograph and enjoy nature in Michigan.
There are two porta johns at Largo Springs.
Seriously, how gorgeous is this place? Plan to spend about 2 hours here.
There the 300 steps that leads to an other worldly wooden area with tons of boardwalks. (I bet hobbits and fairies live here.)
The pond and springs are just stunning and are fantastic to photograph.
