Mackinac Island Cross Country Skiing

Mackinac Island Cross Country Trails

The Mackinac Island Ski club grooms trails on the east and north side of the Island in Mackinac Island State Park.

The cross country ski trails wind through the pristine woods of Mackinac Island State Park and allow the winter visitor to see all of the natural and historical landmarks of the island.

You can follow the ski trails to the interior of the island and take in the vistas from the highest point on the island at Fort Holmes. Or ski through the woods to Arch Rock and enjoy the view of Lake Huron from the bluffs on the eastern side of the island.

I miss it!! I really want to come back there!!!

Another place I've always wanted to visit. 🙂

Beautiful place no matter what time of year

How do you get to the island now? Are the straits frozen for snowmobiles?

This is just the most beautiful thing in the world

I do wonder what it would be like to live on the island in the winter

Always beautiful and always magical!

My three sisters and I went there a few years ago. We were the only Mackinaws on the island!! Instant celebrities!

beautiful....the solitude is inspiring....making plans for the tourist season aren't you ....!

Love this place! Love all the snowmobiles!

Nice picture. Spent a Christmas there 30 plus years ago.

🙏🏻 🌎 🌍 🌏 2️⃣0️⃣1️⃣6️⃣ Been there in the summer but never winter. It looks so beautiful.

One of the most beautiful places I gave ever been.

Wish I was there right now.

Beautiful picture. Can't wait until spring to get back to the North

Will MacDonald this is where we should spend next Christmas

Picture perfect-beautiful looking town!

What a neat view. Different from the normal views we see.

That's beautiful,like a painting,puzzle or post card.

At the city at the moment...love this place

Magical dusk light at the Mackinac Island Marina. Found this in an unedited file from two years ago, it was a Thursday night, just like tonight, and it was  music in the park by mackinacartscouncil.  I can still feel the warmth of that evening and hear the band (Friends With the Weather) playing… #mackinacisland #marina #boats #dusk #evening #musicinthepark #michigan #summer #allthefeels #outdoorconcert #memories #happyplace

There is a cool breeze off the water tonight, with that heavy scent that only come from the Big Lake.  And even though I live in a Lakeshore town so that's not a unusual thing, it makes me long for Summer evenings on the Island.⁠
⁠
Not Prince Edward Island, although I did just re-read Anne of Green Gables. ⁠
⁠
But Mackinac Island, sitting green and lovely in the strait between Michigan's Upper and Lower peninsulas.⁠
⁠
Cars are prohibited, which makes it a quiet retreat, however many tourists may be prowling about among the fudge shops and carriage ride stands. ⁠
⁠
My youngest daughter loves it, because the lack of constant noise eases her sensory overload issues.  The older one hates it, because she's deprived of the stimulation of her beloved internet.  Two Autistic kids, two very different responses to the slow down required by the Island.⁠
⁠
Perhaps I ought to just check to see if there is the possibility for one little trip before school starts again.  I'm a Northern Michigan girl in my bones, and I miss the pines, the cliffs, and the water.

Who doesn’t like fudge, bikes, and horses???

Did you know there are ONLY three fudge companies on the island?

They also don’t allow cars on the island so it’s remained so intact to its colonial times
