Outdoors

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.

Spring might be the most welcomed of the seasons when it comes to outdoor activities. While winter’s snow and cold don’t deter the hearty skiers and snowshoers among us, many wait patiently for that first hint of spring to hit the hiking and biking trails, walk along the beach, cast a fishing line or dip our paddles into one of our many rivers and lakes.

And while you’re biking or paddling through God’s Country, the area’s rich agricultural heritage is clearly on display as rolling cherry orchards put on their annual blossom show, and freshly tilled black soil is a dramatic contrast to soft green hills and valleys.

For added ease in planning your outdoor adventure, try the popular Experience 231 Mobile App, designed to offer visitors and residents access to over 300 year-round outdoor activities.
