Magill Weber

Find adventure amidst Door County’s scenic beauty

A picturesque peninsula with 298 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline, state parks, forests, and cozy inns, Door County is one of the Midwest’s prime tourist attractions. Magill Weber explores the many recreational opportunities available to visitors, including secret spots known only to locals and longtime seasonal residents. Wisconsin native Janet Mrazek contributes 125 detailed and easy-to-follow maps. With suggestions of more than 150 scenic hikes, biking and paddling routes, end-of-the-road beaches, lighthouses, and wildlife-watching sites, and descriptions of the local flora and fauna, Door County Outdoors is the ultimate guide for active travelers and nature enthusiasts.

“As I read, I exclaimed several times, ‘Oh, we have to hike this trail! We should paddle this route!’ I thought I knew Door County, but Magill Weber suggests all sorts of new natural treasures to explore. The information will make the Midwest’s many nature lovers quite happy.”
—Lynne Diebel, coauthor of Green Travel Guide to Southern Wisconsin and Green Travel Guide to Northern Wisconsin

Magill Weber, who grew up in Wisconsin, has spent extensive time in Door County hiking, biking, sailing, kayaking, and birding. She is a project director for The Nature Conservancy in California.
