The Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is calling on all trail enthusiasts to share their experiences and insights about the state’s extensive trail system. With over 13,400 miles of state-designated trails, the DNR is eager to understand how residents and visitors use and enjoy these outdoor pathways.
