Manistee Non-Motorized Park

Why it’s great for the first time hiker & biker…

The Manistee Non-Motorized park was developed and designed by a group of volunteers who love the outdoors, biking and winter sports. The park consists of 4 short loops with nearly 5 miles of marked trails and is fairly flat. Ideal for the beginners. The trails are also groomed for Fat biking during the winter months.

Why it’s great for the first time skier…

Many of the reasons it is great for the biker and hiker apply for the cross country skier. With a great classic and skate skiing groomed system, the trails are fairly flat and a great place to learn the sport.


Best segment(s) for a 2 hours or less hike

Much of the trail can be traversed in 2 hours time.
