      Mackinac Island offers over 70 miles of roads and single-track trails to explore. Most of the trails are beginner to intermediate but there are a handful of trails that will challenge the most advanced rider. Countless points of interest litter the trail system and include natural limestone rock formations, high cliffs, beaches, caves, historic forts, and breath taking views.

      Use of Trailforks will help immensely with finding your way around along with having a printed map of the island for referencing main roads. Maps of the island can be acquired at many locations throughout downtown.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Land Status: State Park
      Access Info:
      There are ferry options to get to the Island from both St. Ignace and Mackinaw City.
