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

I’m Kalin. Kay-Lynn. Not Kaitlin or Carlin or my personal waiting room favorite “cuh Lynn”. ⠀
⠀
I’m tall. I’m loud. I wanna cry tears of happiness when you say things like “I trust you on the flowers.” ⠀
⠀
I’m a mom to 4 month old and a 21 month old. I’m a wife to my best friend Matt. ⠀
⠀
Years ago we bought a small farm in Petoskey, Michigan and moved here to run our newly formed flower business from this area. It was one of the smartest decisions we’ve ever made. ⠀
⠀
As you read this I’m almost guaranteed to be ...wearing carhartt, craving a piece of dark chocolate, carrying around a hand written to do list on the back of an envelope & more than likely have 20+ unread texts on my phone. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #summer ⠀
⠀
Im more nervous to navigate a busy intersection that I was to give a TED talk. Because I can control the talk but I have zero control over Colton’s need to Snap & drive like an asshat. ⠀
⠀
I drank so much Spindrift for 2+ years that I’m taking a break from all bubbly waters. I hate the dentist. I love Happy’s Tacos. ⠀
⠀
I design flowers. I teach people how to design flowers. I share my love of flowers, wreaths & life in general with thousands of people each year in the form of private event floristry, workshops, wreath kits, wreath workshops (IYKYK) and a constant commitment to sharing our journey of business ownership + life with you. ⠀
⠀
Happy Saturday. ⠀
Thanks for hanging out. ⠀

Spent the day walking around the island 🏝 , day drinking 🍹and enjoying the sunshine ☀️. Then took a walk around to see the sunset 🌅. It gets chilly at night 🥶. But already at 20,000 steps which isn’t bad for being in the car for four hours. Love this place ❤️.
