PARADISE, Mich. — The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has designated this week, September 17th to the 24th, “Michigan Trails Week.”
In a culmination event for the celebrated week, the DNR is urging avid hikers and leisurely tourists alike to participate in the “Hike Between Da Falls” event, taking place on Saturday, September 24th at Tahquamenon Falls State Park.
The Tahquamenon River is home to two sets of falls, the Upper Tahquamenon Falls and the Lower Tahquamenon Falls.
The park will be providing a free shuttle service from the Lower Falls, where hikers can park, to the Upper Falls, where the trail will begin. The shuttles will operate from 9am to 1pm.
The five-mile trail, which runs parallel along the river, is home to “old-growth forest, giant cedars and beautiful wildflowers,” according to the Pure Michigan website.
Leashed dogs may also participate in the hike.
