EXPLORING IN WINTER
While snowmobiling, downhill skiing, snowboarding, and year-around fishing are Cadillac’s best known recreational winter pursuits, winter enthusiasts have an abundance of choices to experience the season. Cross-country skiing, trekking, snowshoeing, hunting, photographic quests, and camping adventures in this area rival any in the country.
Finding something to do in the cold weather months is EASY in Cadillac. With a regional snowmobile trail network topping out at nearly 500 miles through 5 counties, our winter sports trail network is second to none in the lower peninsula of Michigan.
Add up our 500,000 acres of National Forest with nearly 100 miles of backcountry trails for Fat Tire biking, cross country skiing, and snowshoeing along with three inland lakes with ice fishing opportunities at every turn, you have an incredible winter opportunity in the heart of Michigan.
It doesn’t stop there, Caberfae peaks is (literally) the cherry on top, with nearly 500′ of vertical drop on 34 beautifully groomed runs.

XC Skiing Report (Cadillac Pathway):
Update - March 5, 2021
This could be it for the Winter Sports trail so get out there this weekend! It is surprisingly good considering the recent conditions. We groomed on Friday night lowering the teeth on the grooming device so it is chewed up and it should be great this morning with potential getting soft in the afternoon. We have closed the furthest 2 mile loop due to logging. You can still venture out there if you want but it is ungroomed and sections fun and sections not so fun. The snow is melting on the XC trail. The tracks are less deep and they are icy. No future grooms planned unless we get more snow.
