5 Things to Do in February to Experience Michigan's Paradise

Listen to the Tahquamenon Falls It is a less than half a mile walk from the parking lot to the Tahquamenon Upper Falls. Many snowmobilers park their ride and walk to the falls. There are heated restrooms near the parking lot. The site is breathtaking, the noise as you approach is deafening in the quiet of the forest. On your return to the parking lot, stop at the brewery, Camp 33 for microbrew! Tahquamenon Falls State Park Website

Snowmobile Pristine Groomed Trails The Paradise Area Night Riders are a group of avid snowmobilers that groom some 120 miles of snowmobile trails across this region of the Upper Peninsula. If you don’t have your own sled, there are two snowmobile rental outfits in Paradise. The main thing is to collect your map, water, dress warmly, and enjoy the ride. Check weather and trails conditions on the Michigan Snowmobilers Association website or get the actual scoop locally at

Snowshoe or Cross Country Ski The Paradise area offers a number of groomed trails for snowshoeing or cross-country ski use, quiet trials. Connecting with Michigan’s Iron Belle, the Tahqua Trail section of North Country Trail offers incredible vistas of the Tahquamenon River. Just west of Paradise on the Tahquamenon Scenic Heritage Byway, is the Paradise Pathways. The Tahquamenon Falls State Park offers both groomed and less traveled trails. Hike a short distance and plan overnight camping, but for the health of it, get out and enjoy the beauty of the Paradise area. Through February on Saturdays, the Tahquamenon Falls State Park offers guided snowshoe hikes at 2:00 PM and Lantern Lit Cross-Country trails Saturday evenings.

Sled Dog Rides Nature’s Kennel Sled Dog Racing and Adventures offers sled dog rides and adventures at their kennel just a short drive from Paradise, in McMillan, Michigan. As the dogs run in unison, sit back and relax as you take a peaceful trip through the winding trails. What a great time for the entire family. Relax and enjoy the ride, or learn how to mush, Natures Kennel offers you an experience of the lifetime for you entire family.

Horseback Rides through the northern wood trails during the winter months is a experience of a lifetime.   Like most of the winter activities listed, final plans are  contingent to weather conditions.
