Episode #1806 A UP Adventure

“Michigan's First Rails to Trails: Celebrating 50 Years”

Episode #1702

In 1969 there were no Rail Trails in Michigan until the folks in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula banded together to make the old Superior Railroad line into the first one and by 1970 it was a reality. 2020 is the 50th anniversary and we will bike, ATV, snowmobile and ride on horseback to discover the beauty and history traveling from Lake Superior to Lake Michigan on Michigan’s first Rails to Trails.

Episode 1802 Wilderness Waterfalls

Visit Manistique

The U.P. is home to all but one of Michigan’s waterfalls. There are more than 200 falls scattered across the U.P., ranging in size from under 5 feet to 48+ feet vertical drops. Almost all require hiking to reach, and all are worth the hike. Some of the hikes are a lot harder than others but as you will see today the hikes are half the fun.

Great Getaways is a television travel series that spotlights active getaway adventures across the Midwest and Canada with an emphasis on the outdoors. Host Tom O'Boyle travels to a variety of destinations and talks to the locals about vacation and recreation opportunities. Join us as we continue to discover more Great Getaways.
