When you live in a state with so much nature, it can be hard to fit all your exploring in during the warm months. Thankfully, those in Michigan are well-versed in making the most of winter and fall. One of the Best Hiking Trails in Michigan is the perfect example, with the best times to visit between December through March.

The Rolling Hills, Trappers Cabin, and Manitou Loop at Au Sable State Park near Roscommon, Michigan is one of the few places that is way more fun when there’s snow on the ground rather than green grass. This hike is still fantastic in the summer, but there’s nothing like it in the winter.
