Outdoor Recreation in Michigan's Great Lakes Bay

Just being in the great outdoors is a magical experience all its own. But, when that magic means exploring the longest canopy walk in the country from four stories high in the treetops, ecotouring through more than 19,000 acres of some of Michigan's richest wildlife habitat, or trekking along almost 100 miles of scenic trails — dotted by pocket parks and prime nooks for birding — you know you've found a place that'll leave you filled with wonder.

And, on guided ecotour, rented bike, or just your own two feet — Pure Michigan's raw, unfiltered beauty is yours to feel firsthand. Just bring your sense of adventure; our Great Lakes Bay trails and treetop adventures, wetlands and wildlife await!
