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.

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

Lucky enough to have experienced winter in downtown Mackinac Island. At Christmas no less. It was magical.

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

Always beautiful and always magical!

Everybody got to ride their snowmobiles to town.

I would love to spend a week or so there in winter, not the whole winter, though.

Love Mackinac Island. Love Joanns fudge.

Nicole we should sneak away one winter !

I bet it doesn't smell like it it does in the summer. It will burn the hair right out of your nose.

This scenery is beautiful:)

Take away those snowmobiles and it could be any year.

I miss this! One of favorite places❤️

I hope everyone there enjoys the freedom to zip around the island on your snow machines!!!

Picture perfect.

I so want to snowmobile out to Mackinac Island again, Such a great trip.

We haven't been there in years but it is really a neat place.. Beautiful picture!
