Trails and Hiking
Leelanau Trail
Stretching over 15 miles through the last of the Leelanau County railway corridors, the Leelanau Trail connects Traverse City and Suttons Bay. The trail route features rolling hills, lush forests, picturesque orchards, peaceful meadows, and an aquatic medley of streams, lakes, and ponds.
Leelanau State Park

The Leelanau State Park is located North of Northport near Woolsey Airport. This park has an excellent set of trails through virgin forest some of which lead to a pristene section of the Cat Head Bay shore line, a view and experience not to be missed.

Sleeping Bear Dunes and Manitou Islands
Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore encompasses a 60 km (35 mi.) stretch of Lake Michigan's eastern coastline, as well as North and South Manitou Islands. The park was established primarily for its outstanding natural features, including forests, beaches, dune formations, trails and ancient glacial phenomena.
