Product Description:

With 65 photographs and 77 detailed maps, this indispensable guide to the state's hiking trails gives beginners to advanced hikers all the information they need to plan their next Michigan overnight or weekend backpacking trip. Featuring 50 trails---27 in the Lower Peninsula---ranging from one-hour to multiple-day treks in both the Upper and Lower Peninsulas, Backpacking in Michigan has something for every hiker.

Information on hike length and difficulty, elevation gain, the amount of time needed to complete the hike, camping facilities, and nearby towns accompanies each of the trail listings. The author also provides extensive reference maps along with a description of scenic highlights. In addition to backcountry explorations of remote trails, Backpacking in Michigan includes classic Michigan adventures such as the Lakeshore Trail in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, the Greenstone Ridge Trail in Isle Royale National Park, North Manitou Island in Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, and Jordan River Pathway in the Mackinaw State Forest.

While Backpacking in Michigan focuses primarily on the trails themselves, it also makes planning your Michigan adventure as easy as possible by providing important information on routes to and from the trailhead, as well as park fees and reservation information for shelters, walk-in cabins, rental yurts, and overnight camping.

Jim DuFresne is a Michigan native and author of more than a dozen wilderness, travel, and hiking guidebooks. He is author of Isle Royale National Park: Foot Trails and Water Routes; 50 Hikes in Michigan: The Best Walks, Hikes, and Backpacks in the Lower Peninsula; Best Hikes with Children: Michigan; Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park: A Backcountry Guide for Hikers, Campers, Backpackers, and Skiers; as well as The Complete Guide to Michigan Sand Dunes, copublished by the University of Michigan Press and Petoskey Publishing.

Product Description:
“Hey! ----Aren't you supposed to be working?!” And yet, here you are searching for another good book to read ---in the hiking section of all places. Does that mean you’ve thought about going on a backpacking adventure of your own, like all the people who through-hike the Appalachian Trail (AT)? Me too. Do you long to reconnect with America, like Bill Bryson in A Walk in the Woods? Or, become a trail legend and icon, like David Miller, in Awol on the Appalachian Trail? Or, are you searching for a long term hike on the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), like Cheryl Strayed, in Wild, as a way to get back to Nature to heal your soul? Good luck! I don't think your boss will give you 6 months off work to go do that. That's why I wrote the book, A Walk Across Michigan: Hiking the Michigan Shore-to-Shore Riding and Hiking Trail. There's a trail that cuts across the middle of Michigan that's perfect for people like us. I know because I hiked it. The Shore-to-Shore (STS) is 232.1 miles long and is an ideal path for someone who is looking to do a longer hike but doesn't have a lot of time. It’s also a great choice for those who need a trail for a shakedown run and it is newbie hiker friendly. You probably haven't heard of the Michigan Shore-to-Shore Riding and Hiking Trail yet because the trail name is too long to put on a tee shirt and also because it is a well guarded secret! I sent an email to Chris Santella and Bob Peixotto to add the Michigan Shore-to-Shore Riding and Hiking Trail to their book, Fifty Places to Hike Before You Die, but they are busy guys so it might not be on their radar. Please, don't tell the people in Ohio about it or they will start coming up and hiking it, too. Just like how they come up in the summer to rent all the cottages and clog up our great beaches. Anyway, I'm not some big time author with a massive budget and an army of marketing minions to do the fancy book descriptions, set up signings, or arrange interviews on talk shows in order to persuade you to buy this book. However, as an accomplished user of bullets in all my college research papers, I can give you a lot of reasons to buy this book and tag along vicariously with me: You’ll get smart! It's packed with information about a very cool trail for hikers and horseback riders. It’s an easy hike! Reading this book means no smoke in the eyes, bugs, or stinky body parts normally associated with hiking You'll get smarter! Fascinating detours to learn about history stuff like the logging industry in Michigan, animals, rare birds and even ants! It will make you want to go hiking You will have fun Mom says I am a good writer, a fun storyteller and I walked at 9 months, which undoubtedly was an indicator that I would be a famous hiker someday You get free refills on beverages of your choice (pickup only) while you sit in your favorite chair to read this. It's got pictures and maps You get to hang with me! Written by a librarian (which automatically raises the cool factor). BUY WILL'S BOOK NOW!! BUY WILL'S BOOK NOW!! BUY WILL'S BOOK NOW!! If you can see the line above and the text is visible and not flashing, the subliminal plug-in is not working. Please refresh your screen rapidly until you feel an urge to purchase something. Thank you! Ok. Like Dad used to say, "Time to fish or cut bait." You comin’ with us or what?! Push that buy button and get back to work, where you can pretend to be slaving over a spread sheet or doing something productive while you dream about our great adventure. See you on the other side!
