Do you and your pup love to hike no matter what the weather forecast looks like? Then you are in for an exciting adventure at the Caberfae Way Snowmobile trails in Cadillac, Michigan. You cannot run out of fun places to hike here and all are pup-friendly!
The best place to access the trails is at the Caberfae Peaks Resort. Parking is free, and you will have direct access to these USDA Forest Service lands. Park your car, pack up your gear and your pup, and you are ready to hit the trails.
Caberfae Way is a listed as a National Recreational Trail geared in the summer for hikers, and in the winter for snowmobilers and snowshoers. Take your pick of hiking trails which total 36 miles through the Huron Manistee National Forest. Made up of forest roads and trails cut through the forest, you will not be disappointed with the scenery at any time of the year!
Your hike will take you and Fido along flat land in forested areas, as well as rolling hills. The trails then meander through open meadows which are covered in wildflowers and green grass in the springtime. What dog doesn’t love to roll in the newly-sprouted spring grass! Your trip will not be complete until you cross the bridges along the way, making for picture-perfect selfies with your pawtastic pup!
Restrooms and drinking fountains can be found at the resort and near the main entrance to the trails. If you are hiking in the summer, make sure to pack some insect repellant for you both. Are you heading out in winter? Then cold-weather gear it is! Boots and a coat for Fido are recommended! Although leashes are not required, it is advised to keep your fur-ever friend restrained in winter when snowmobilers might be present for everyone’s safety.
Year-round adventure awaits you and your pup-tastic friend at the Caberfae Way Snowmobile trails in beautiful Cadillac, Michigan!
