The Munising Ski Trail is located within the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Eight loops combine for a 11.7 mile trail system. Trails wind through a beautiful landscape made of a variety of habitats and topography. Beech, maple, hemlock and other conifers and old field plant communities grow on the sandy uplands and rugged hills of old glacier features. The trail receives about 140" of snow a winter.
There is a variety of loop lengths for a leisurely day ski or a quick workout at the end of the day. All lakeshore trails are designed for diagonal stride only - skating is not permitted. Trails are marked with blue diamonds and a map at each intersection. Most of the trail loops are groomed regularly - watch for grooming equipment.
Pets, winter camping, snowshoeing, walking and skating are not permitted on lakeshore trails.
Skiing is free at the Lakeshore; however, the park will be installing donation boxes for those who wish to assist in the cost of maintaining these beautiful trails.
