Hunting Season


Fall is in the air, and in Michigan that means hunting season! 

Most of our trails are in areas that are closed to hunting, but three of our area trails will see lots of activity: Island Lake, Proud Lake, and Highland – all state recreation areas. Most hunters on public land know there is all sorts of activity in the woods during hunting season and will expect to see bikers on the trail. Many hunters welcome bikers, as more people in the woods keeps deer moving and active.

While the hunting accidents are exceedingly rare – you’re vastly more likely to be injured in the car ride to the trailhead – some riders choose to avoid these three trails during firearm season. That’s up to you. If you do ride, it’s not a bad idea to wear something in blaze orange to make you easily identifiable to others in the woods.
