There are several trail-ways in the Pere Marquette, the longest of which are the Muncie Lake Pathway, at 11.5 miles in length; the VASA Pathway, at 16.7 miles; and the Cadillac Pathway, at 11.3 miles. The trails are well suited to biking, hiking and cross country skiing.

The North Country Trail includes 65 miles within the Pere Marquette, and over 1500 miles in Michigan as a whole.
