Outdoor Recreation in Traverse City

Outdoor Recreation

 

Experience 231 App is Available on iTunes and Google Play!

Traverse City is known for its outdoor recreation and now it's even easier to plan your adventure with the launch of the new Experience 231 Mobile App. The app is designed to offer visitors and locals access to over 300 year-round outdoor activities including hiking, biking, swimming, paddling, snowshoeing, skiing, and more! 

Traverse City and the surrounding area is an outdoor-lovers paradise with each of the four seasons offering nearly endless opportunities to experience all Mother Nature has to offer.

Bike or skate along miles of paved (and unpaved) trails early spring through late fall. Or head off road and hike or bike through dense forests or along spectacular waterfront pathways. Traverse City's trail systems -- including the TART and the Vasa -- are hugely popular thanks in large part to dedicated volunteers who keep them groomed year-round. Snowshoers and nordic skiiers revel in the serenity of these trails, too.

Ski or board at one of several resorts in the area during the winter months, or strap on the water skiis once summer arrives. Charter a fishing boat and head out on Grand Traverse Bay or Lake Michigan to reel in some freshwater salmon or trout, or try out the latest Up North craze: stand-up paddle boarding.
