Biking from Lake Michigan to Lake Huron Now Possible


The final segment of a 140-mile trail from Charlevoix, through Mackinac City and down to Alpena is now complete, making it possible for ambitious bikers to ride from Lake Michigan to Lake Huron. The final segment to complete the trail is the North Western State Trail (NWST), a 32-mile stretch from Alanson to Mackinaw City.

The path is composed of crushed and compacted limestone, which is perfect for equestrians, bikers, joggers and snowmobilers during the winter. Otherwise, motorized use is prohibited. The completion of the NWST wraps up almost 30 years of trail improvement and creation by the Top of Michigan Trails Council, Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Michigan Department of Transportation and local governments.
