How much do you LOVE hiking, snowshoeing, and cross country skiing? Fall in love all over again with the best outdoor Winter sports on the North Country Trail and the Giant Pines Loop and take in views of the Upper Falls at Tahquamenon Falls State Park.

This hike is at 10am (starting at the Upper Falls parking lot at the Fact Shack on the south end near the bathrooms) and is a looped hike that includes the Upper Falls and the Giant Pines Loop that the NCT overlays for quite a while. There is an option to follow the NCT off the loop to view the 500′ beaver dam and new boardwalk built in 2017 just off the loop. The loop is about 4 miles long and is groomed for skiing.

After that you have the option to grab lunch at the Camp 33 Taquamenon Brewery and Pub located by the parking lot.

Bonus: A hike down to the Lower Falls may happen after lunch.
2nd Bonus: The lantern lit trail at the Upper Falls will be available at 6pm.

Bring: Water, Skis or snowshoes, camera, clothing for hiking and fresh clothing for after the hike, the 10 essentials, a snack for the trail, AND a FRIEND!
