You live in an expansive and beautiful state, and you should take advantage of all it has to offer, which is why we’ve created a list for Petoskey and Indian River residents seeking the best hiking in Michigan. If you’re ready to see some beautiful sights, hop into one of the Jeep Rubicon for sale in Michigan at our Cheboygan dealership, then check out the favorite hiking spots of Fernelius Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram sales department, service center, and finance center employees. Just a few of the best places to see the fall colors in Michigan while hiking include:

  • North Country Trail/Manistee River Trail
  • Pyramid Point Trailhead
  • Genesee Valley Trail
  • Waterloo-Pinckney Trail

These Are Some of the Best Hiking Trails in Southeast Michigan

  • North Country Trail/Manistee River Trail: North Country National Scenic Trail spans across seven states, and a quarter of it is in Michigan. Though the 1,150 miles of North Country Trail within Michigan is all worthwhile, the Manistee River Trail is one of our favorites here at Fernelius Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. About 11 miles worth of trail snakes along the high banks of Big Manistee River, though the ambitious are welcome to 23-mile loop of the combined Manistee River Trail/North Country Trail. Nestled between Tippy Dam and Hodenpyle Dam, the scenic overlooks are more than worth the effort. The trail is also a fairly easy hike, and therefore great for groups of people of all experience levels.
  • Pyramid Point Trailhead: Though the 100-miles worth of hiking trails among the Sleeping Bear Dunes are wonderful, the Pyramid Point Trailhead proves to be the most beautiful of the bunch. The moderately difficult, three-mile journey offers intriguing views of Lake Michigan, along with meadows filled with wildflowers. Impressively, this short trail also gives hikers sights of rolling sand dunes and birch-filled forest.
  • Genesee Valley Trail: This wonderful trail will take you from Linden Road to Chevy Commons near downtown Flint, Michigan. The 4.5 mile trail cuddles an abandoned railway line, offering rustic sights paired with Michigan fall colors. Also, Genesee Valley Trail is among the easiest to hike, since its a smooth paved trail that lends itself to less strenuous strolling.
  • Waterloo-Pinckney Trail: This challenging, 35-mile trail is best done over a couple of days. Waterloo-Pinckney Trail offers glacial features, several forest types, and tops out at about 1,128 feet on Sackrider Hill. Covering the Waterloo State Recreation Area and Pinckney Recreation Area, you’ll find breathtaking views along Waterloo-Pinckney Trail!
