Winter Wonderland

Lakeshore ski trails are located in Grand Marais and Munising. Trails wind through a beautiful landscape made of a variety of habitats and topography. Beech, maple, hemlock, and other conifers and old-field plant communities grow on the sandy uplands and rugged hills of old glacial features. The trails receive about 200 inches of snow a winter.

Each trail offers a variety of loop lengths for a leisurely day ski or a quick workout at the end of the day. All Lakeshore trails are designed for diagonal stride only – skating is not permitted. Trails are marked with blue diamonds and a map at each intersection. The trails are groomed regularly – watch for grooming equipment. Whether you are a novice or an accomplished skier, we hope you find the trails challenging and fun.

For Your Safety

Trails C and D cross a county road used by snowmobiles – listen for approaching snowmobiles before crossing. Ski trail conditions may vary. Heavy weekend use and alternating daytime thawing and nighttime freezing may turn snow-packed slopes into fast, icy runs. Severe storms are common in the area and rise quickly. Wind may obliterate the trail at times. Darkness comes early in the winter so allow yourself plenty of time to return to your car before dark. Travel with a companion and let someone know where you are going. Wear adequate clothing in layers. Take food and water if you plan to be out for the day. Match your skill level to the trails you ski. Pets, winter camping, snowshoeing, walking, and skating are not permitted on Lakeshore ski trails.

Munising Falls is a waterfall located in Munising in the westernmost portion of the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Alger County. The falls drops about 50 feet (15 m) over a sandstone cliff. With the exception of the spring thaw, the amount of water falling is relatively small. There are trails leading to multiple viewpoints around the falls.

In the winter, the falls freeze forming an ice column. Munising Falls themselves are off-limits to climbers, but ice climbing is popular in the area and there are other spots in the vicinity where climbing is allowed.

Located within the city limits of Munising where Washington Street becomes Sand Point Road, near Munising Memorial Hospital.

Walk the paved 800 foot trail up the cool shaded sandstone canyon along Munising Creek to the base of the falls. Two sets of stairs lead to platforms to view the 50 foot waterfall as it drops over a sandstone cliff. Watch for ferns, wildflowers, and an occasional mink.

The trail is fully accessible to the central falls viewing platform. Please stay on the paved trail.

Pets are permitted on the trail to Munising Falls.
