Trail across Michigan from Lake Huron to Lake Michigan
The Michigan Shore-to-Shore Trail (also known as The Michigan Riding and Hiking Trail) is a 220-mile long trail that runs between Empire on Lake Michigan and Oscoda on Lake Huron across the Lower Peninsula of Michigan. It is open to horseback riders and hikers but not bicycles. The trail travels through the Boardman River valley and follows the Au Sable River for about 50 miles. The trail was developed by trail riders in 1962 and travels through mixed hardwood and conifer forests. Private campgrounds are located throughout the route.
