Snowshoe Trails

Snowshoeing has become increasingly popular in the Traverse City area, thanks to our vast acreage of forest and parkland and miles of trails. The Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore has eight marked trails, some leading up to panoramic overlooks high above the lake. Other marked trail systems include the Lost Lake Pathway near Interlochen, the 3,500-acre Sand Lakes Quiet Area near Williamsburg and the Grand Traverse County Natural Education Reserve in the Boardman valley. Within the city, the 300-acre Grand Traverse Commons features superb skiing and snowshoeing in park-like grounds among century-old, European-style buildings and stands of old-growth pines.
