Huron-Manistee National Forest Guide

The Huron-Manistee National Forest lies between the shores of Lake Michigan and Lake Huron on the Lower Peninsula of Michigan. The forest has nearly 1 million acres and is bordered by dense forests in the north and agricultural lands in the south. Inside the forest, you will find diverse habitats of dry sand prairie remnants, dunes, oak savannahs, fens, coastal marshlands, bogs, and marshes. Trout species are abundant in the cold-water watersheds, and fishing in all seasons is always fun. With access to more than 330 miles of hiking trails, people of all athletic abilities can find an interesting trail, many of which are multi-use trails. Huron-Manistee National Forest is centrally located, and you will easily be able to travel both within and outside the forest and fully explore this beautiful Great Lakes region.
