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

Beautiful! I love going there! Can't wait until spring!

I took my family there two years ago . we absolutely love it! Would great to spend a Christmas there

I called my boss to tell him I would be late for work, and of course he wasn’t too thrilled. However, when I told him it was because I would be kayaking to work, the laughter came FLOODING in.

April showers bring.... flash floods in AZ!

Coming up north this summer? ⠀
⠀
May I entice you with an in person workshop at the farm learning how to design flowers? ⠀
⠀
While we've sold out some of our offerings, tickets are still available to come and learn, create & just ohave fun with me + the team at the farm for an evening at our loved Centerpiece Basics Workshop (pictured above) and our Bouquet Workshops. ⠀
⠀
Look, the rat race isn't going anywhere. Work, kids, weird societal pressure, your fitness routine, the pressure to 'eat clean', the insane amount of things we put on our lists daily -- leave it all behind. ⠀
⠀
You deserve to treat yourself to a Northern Michigan escape that is about you. Not hauling your kids around the island, not only coming up for your cousin's wedding, not the 'guilt' you feel about a year off from visiting Aunt Marge at the lake in August. ⠀
⠀
Think about how amazing it would be to plan a trip up north for you. To do what you want. And to include a Sweetwater Floral workshop on that itinerary. ⠀
⠀
Tickets are available at the link in my profile.⠀
See you there? ⠀
⠀
