Seasons in Munising

Whether you’re looking to kayak, take a boat cruise, and enjoy miles of gorgeous hiking and biking trails in the summertime, or snowmobile, ski, or explore frozen waterfalls and ice caves in the winter, Munising is a year-round destination that provides something for everyone.

After the snow melts, Munising’s waterfalls tumble down cliffs and rocks with thunderous force.  Not only is it the best time to see them, but it’s also the perfect time for those looking to beat the summer crowds to visit.

Munising is a hub of activity during the summer months, including guided boat and kayak of the Pictured Rocks, Grand Island, and local shipwrecks. For those who prefer being on land, there are incredible waterfall hikes, magical beaches to relax on, and scenic trails to explore, making it a destination suitable for all ages.

While the colorful cliffs of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore are stunning year-round, the scenery is even more spectacular in the fall. Scarlet reds, bright oranges, and deep burgundies line the cliffs and are reflected in the crystal blue water of Lake Superior, making the tones of the sandstone cliffs pop even more.

With an average snowfall of 300 inches, Munising is truly a winter wonderland. Deemed the “Snowmobiling Capital of the Midwest,” the area is perfect for adventure seekers looking for a thrill during the colder months. Enjoy hundreds of miles of scenic and groomed snowmobiling, skiing, and snowshoeing trails in Munising.
