Trail time can earn you badges

MARQUETTE — During Michigan Trails Week, set for Sept. 19-26, individuals are invited to travel 100,000 miles on trails across the state and earn badges and maybe some prizes along the way.

The 2021 Michigan Trails Week Challenge is open to trail veterans and newcomers alike, and is free. Participants may log miles spent on any local, county, state or federally managed trail. For each badge earned, they will be entered in a drawing for outdoor gear and Michigan-branded prizes.

Participants earn a badge when they register for the challenge and log at least 1 mile, and every time they: bike for 10 miles; horseback ride for 5 miles; paddle for 2 miles; ride an ORV, ATV or motorcycle for 15 miles; or walk, run or hike for 5 miles.
