Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore / X-Country Skiing & Snowshoeing

The Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore offers two groomed and tracked cross-country ski trail areas with multiple loops. One is near Munising on the park’s west end and the other is near Grand Marais on the eastern end of the park. The park’s trails range from easy to difficult and wind more than 20 miles through a breathtaking landscape of diverse habitat with each trail offering a variety of loop lengths for a gentle day ski or quick workout. All lakeshore trails are designed for diagonal stride only – skating is not permitted. Snowshoe users can enjoy the 1.75-mile-long loop travels through various habitats of beech, maple, and conifer forests. The snowshoe trail is adjacent to the Munising cross-country ski trails. A Park Pass is needed.
