Things to See

“Snowmobile Capital Attractions” 

Welcome to Munising Snow and our Munising Snowmobile Attractions.  Nestled within glacier-formed hills on the southern shore of Lake Superior, Munising is well endowed with prime, scenic snowmobile-trails. The Pictured Rocks can be reached by various points along the trail.  Many snowmobilers enjoy visiting the iconic Miner’s Castle during the winter months.

Alger County has a variety of Munising winter attractions to visit while riding throughout our snowmobile trail system.  When seeking winter “Things to See”, let the trails lead the way!

Scenic forests of hardwoods and spruce/fir trees add character to the area’s numerous groomed trails, and the additional attractions of waterfalls, quiet streams, isolated lakes and awesome glacial formations along the way make the setting all the more beautiful under a cover of sparkling snow.

Winter brings a special glimpse into the fantastic icy world of our Munising waterfalls. Here formations of mist create beautiful additional highlights to your winter waterfalls excursion. Shown to the left is Miner’s Falls.

Lighthouses are plenty here in Munising. During the winter time, many can be visited by snowmobile.

Miles and miles of wilderness trails following old logging roads and pathways beckon the snowmobile seeking the beauty and solitude of the great northwoods. Map and compass are all that are needed to explore the vast lands of the Hiawatha National Forest and Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. 

The Eben Ice Caves form each winter as water seeps though the walls of the Rock River Gorge.  Although not “true” caves, they are made up of vertical walls of ice formed the seeping water, making this a great place to explore.  These are different each year and fun for the entire family. 

The Eben Ice Caves are located West of Munising in the Rock River Canyon Wilderness which is part of the Hiawatha National Forest North of Eben Junction.  It is situated 25 miles E of Marquette, 15 miles W of Munising.  To get there by snowmobile, take Trail 419 east of Munising to Trail 8 and go west of Eben Junction. There you will see the New Moon Bar. Make a right hand turn and travel north approx. 1½ miles to make a right hand turn onto Frey Road. At the curve, park and begin walking east across the big field. The trail is easy to follow in the winter and it is about one mile. Motorized vehicles are prohibited.

Lakenenland Sculpure Park is a very amazing place to visit.  People of all ages love to see the art of Tom Lakenen.

Lakenenland Sculpture Park is 15 miles east of Marquette, MI on highway M-28, across from Shot Point Road. You may also find it along the snowmobile trail #417.

“If you are in the area, I hope you’ll stop and check it out. It’s open free to the public 7 days a week. Hope you like it!”—Tom Lakenen

We have many great Upper Michigan attractions to visit during the winter.  Let the trails lead the way through the Munising Michigan snowmobiling area and beyond. Make sure to take time during your winter travels to view the gorgeous Pictured Rocks and our numerous waterfalls!

Snowmobiles are permitted on designated portions of roadways and lakes in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. The designated routes for snowmobiles are the frozen waters of Lake Superior and Grande Sable Lake, and the major lakeshore roads used by motorists in the summer. These unplowed roads and shoulders of plowed park roads are open to snowmobiling in conformance with state law.
