Adventures On Land

paul gerow on bikeBiking & Skating

Everyone from road cyclists, trail bikers, and afternoon cruisers will enjoy adventuring through the area on their favorite two-wheeler of choice. Recreational trails offer rugged terrain for beginner to advanced mountain bike riders. Winding country roads provide smooth surfaces for road cyclists, and Alpena’s 18 ½ mile Bi-Path takes pleasure bikers on a tranquil loop throughout the city.


 

Enjoy Alpena from the free-spirited freedom of a bike along the city's 18.5 mile Bi-Path.

Geocaching

Geocaching is an entertaining adventure game for GPS users. Pronounced geo-cashing, it is the sport of treasure hunting using a Global Positioning Unit instead of a map. There are many caches hidden in the Alpena area and a regional organization meets regularly and hosts events.

The Northern Michigan Geocachers main objective is coming together in order to socialize in a family friendly atmosphere, discuss our activities, plan and execute various larger events, promote the educational benefits associated with geocaching, contribute group volunteerism in our communities, forests and recreational areas, as well as increasing traffic at our caches. Our activities are organized through our regular meetings, in our online c hat, and in our forum.
