EXPLORING SPRING

Spring in Cadillac invites you to explore a trail, cast a line, or take to the links. Beginning in March, Cadillac outdoor recreation morphs into a new land of opportunity, beckoning Jeepers to get some mud on the tires. 

SPRING HAS SPRUNG

In late March as the days get longer, avid river goers pile into the local liveries to get the season’s first river bank mud on their shoes, officially kicking off the canoeing and kayaking season on the Manistee, Pine River and Pere Marquette. Bicyclists and Motorcyclists shed their layers to take in the fresh air and witness spring blooming along our 200+ miles of trails and scenic roadways. Anglers begin casting for our coveted Steelhead, Trout and Salmon.
