It’s rare to find … even rarer to make it … but along Southwest Michigan’s Makers Trail you can discover wines that some describe as liquid gold, others dessert in a glass and vintners call “ice wine.”

Snowshoeing at Love Creek

When the snow is too deep to hike your favorite trails it is time to get out the snowshoes. Snowshoeing gives you the freedom to explore the natural splendor of Southwest Michigan more than any other winter recreational sport. All you need six or more inches of snow, a bit of practice and you are ready to go. The destinations are almost endless: tranquil wooded areas, towering dunes, rolling hills, ice-coated shorelines, vineyards, frozen lakes and more.

Cross Country Ski

In the summer months, our shoreline and parks are bustling but in the winter they are often bastions of majestic solemnity. Glide along the serene Lake Michigan shore. Swoosh beneath trees flocked with soft snow and across smooth frozen lakes. Or coast down gentle dunes. Cross country skiing in Southwest Michigan’s varied terrain offers visitors a perfect balance of aerobic exercise and peaceful relaxation. And if you are an advanced skier who wakes early to enjoy the sunrise and make your own trail, you may only have to share the frosty-white landscape with the wildlife.
