Michigan boasts one of the nation’s most extensive rails-to-trails systems, and Cheboygan County lays claim to more of those trails than any other in Michigan. The 62-mile multi-use North Central State Trail between Mackinaw City and Gaylord passes through Cheboygan and is open to non-motorized traffic year-round, snowmobiles from December through March. The 71-mile North Eastern State Trail from Cheboygan to Alpena ranks as another favorite among cyclists, runners, and hikers. Just out of town, the Black Mountain Recreation Area provides another network of marked trails: 30 miles designated for hiking, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing, 60 miles for ORV use, and 80 miles for snowmobiling.

Cheboygan marks the eastern gateway to the Inland Waterway, a unique water trail that stretches 40 miles, nearly to the Petoskey Area. Joining seven state parks, 20 nature preserves, three rivers, three lakes, and numerous quaint towns, boat ramps, marinas, and campgrounds, the Inland Waterway reveals the natural charms of northern Michigan. Rent a kayak and head up the Cheboygan River. Continue through Mullett Lake and Burt Lake, the Crooked River, and Crooked Lake, keeping watch for paddling duck families and long-legged herons. Cast a line and try your hand at fishing the pristine waters. And pull up to one of a dozen family-owned groceries and restaurants to fuel your journey.

When winter arrives, Cheboygan’s proximity to Lake Huron assures a thick cover of pristine snow. Embrace the season at Black Mountain Recreation Area or at a nearby Michigan State Park, such as Cheboygan State Park or Rogers City’s P.H. Hoeft State Park. All offer trails ideal for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, winter hiking, and fat-tire bicycling. The thick powder covers the trails, evergreen trees bow under the weight of snow and the rest of the world feels far away.
