HI, I’m Annie.

I love horses, crafts (especially making beach glass necklaces), and being outside. My favorite things to do outside are horseback riding, backpacking or hiking; and floating down the Manistee river in a kayak or stand up paddle board. I especially love SUPs because you have the freedom to stand, sit, kneel, lay down, or even swim! I enjoy backpacking because it is exciting, beautiful, and there is a sense of accomplishment when you are finished. I love admiring the beauty of God’s creation and going on outdoor adventures because they are exciting and unpredictable.

One way to get the most out of life is to look upon it as an adventure. -William Feather

DYLLAN WALKER

guide

Dyllan is an engineer by trade, he enjoys getting out and enjoying the area during his nights and weekends. A year-round rider, Dyllan can show you around Big M, Arcadia’s St. Pierre Trail, and some breathtaking road bike routes to name a few. 

Dyllan got into mountain biking while at school at Michigan Tech and was fortunate enough to spend two years learning the ropes in Houghton and Copper Harbor. Since then he has ridden many trails in Michigan and around the Midwest. 

“New rider? Unsure of what route to take? Afraid of bears? I’ve been there! We’ll ride to your pace and skill level to make sure you enjoy your experience and want to come back, I’ve got your back if you get a flat or have some minor mechanical issues on the trail!”

Dyllan enjoys paddling and fishing the local waters. He believes an overnight canoe trip is a great way to combine the adventure of a backpacking trip with the leisure of a river float. 

“From the quick winding sections below Hodenpyl or Tippy dam, to the slow meandering sections leading to Manistee Lake. The Manistee Rivers truly have something for everyone to enjoy.”
