How much snowfall does Michigan get each year?
The state of Michigan usually gets about 60 inches of snowfall each year, but according to the Farmers’ Almanac winter forecast for Michigan, we might get even more than that this year! Make sure you’re prepared – you’ll definitely need your warm coats and furry mittens.
Should I go hiking in winter in Michigan?
It gets cold, but you can absolutely go hiking during winter in Michigan. We especially love exploring the Pyramid Point Trail inside Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. This peaceful stroll is only a half mile long, so it’s the perfect distance for a brief winter outing. When Lake Michigan is covered in stunning snow, this whole area takes on a whole new glow. If you loved this walking path, you should also explore the William Derby Nature Preserve Loop in Cedarville. This hike is a bit longer, coming in at 2.8 miles round trip, but we promise it’s worth the effort. Keep your eye out for wildlife! It’s always fun to see what’s scurrying around in the wintertime.
