This is the complete and indispensable illustrated guide to long walks, overnight hikes, and wilderness treks in Michigan. With 50 photographs and 60 maps, this detailed guide to the state's hiking trails gives hikers at all levels everything they need to plan their next Michigan backpacking trip. Featuring 50 trails ranging from hour-long all the way to multiple-day treks in both the Upper and Lower peninsulas, ""Backpacking in Michigan"" offers something for every hiker. Each of the book's trails is accompanied by information on the nearest towns, the length of the hike, the amount of time needed to hike the trail, and the difficulty of the hike. The author also provides detailed reference maps - a necessity for every hiker - along with a description of the treks' highlights. Multiple outings, including overnight hikes, are suggested for large areas such as the Porcupine Mountains in the Upper Peninsula, Wilderness State Park at the tip of the Lower Peninsula, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park, and Isle Royale National Park, offering readers tips on the best ways to enjoy Michigan's greatest natural treasures. While the book focuses primarily on the trails themselves, it also provides information on routes to and from the trailhead, park fees, and reservation information for overnight camping, making planning your Michigan adventure as easy as possible.
