Winter is such a wonderful time in Northern Michigan. There are many activities, such as skiing, ice fishing, sledding, ice skating, and hockey too! Our nature preserves offer hiking and snowshoeing. There’s something for everyone in the family!
Candlelight Hikes: Make sure you stay hydrated, fill our insulated bottle, and join Charlevoix’s recreation every Friday night, starting at 5:00 pm for a candlelight hike at Mt. McSauba.
