Want to experience Mackinac Island as close as you can to the way it was in the 18th and 19th centuries with the added luxuries that you’ll experience back at your hotel or B&B room? Come here in winter. There may be no more serene and beautiful spots in the state than what you’ll find on the trails of the island. Locals will tell that this is how the island is meant to be seen, devoid of summer’s crowds and filled with quiet. You can glide by some of the finest examples of Victorian-era “cottages” found anywhere. Trails are well kept but little used, except by a handful of locals who ski regularly. The entire northern side of the island is blocked off and available to skiers and snowshoers only. Surface quality: Groomed as needed. Mostly single track set, with a few areas of double track.
