Biking, Hiking & Skating

Ah, spring! What a beautiful time to hike, bike or skate your way through the Traverse City area! You can enjoy uncrowded rural roads that wind past flowering orchards and into blossoming forests. You can cruise down miles of paved trails -- including the splendid Traverse Area Recreation and Transportation (TART) Trail and the new Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail between Glen Arbor and Empire.

Or, if you prefer, you can head off-road entirely to enjoy some unpaved adventure on your own.  Keep your eyes peeled for large-flowered trillium and other wildflowers -- or even some tasty morel mushrooms -- as you walk or bike through those shady forests!
