Tunnel of Trees Road
Route 119 (27 miles)
If you like trees, this is your road. Hugging the eastern shore line of Lake Michigan, is one of the state’s most iconic attractions - the Tunnel of Trees Road. M-119 begins at the north end of Petoskey, but it doesn’t officially become The Tunnel of Trees until north of Harbor Springs. From there, the state highway becomes very narrow, running 20 miles along a spectacular bluff overlooking Lake Michigan. Watch for especially sharp twists at Devil’s Elbow and Horseshoe Curve.
This open road wraps around the scenic Lake Huron shoreline. There are numerous State Parks to stop at along Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Overall this route ha good road quality, and there's generally very light traffic.
This route gives a lot of great views of Lake Heron. The top of the 'Thumb' has a few really great State Parks to take in more views of the lake. The rest of the ride has some curvy elements all the way from Port Huron up to the tip with an abundance of trees, beautiful plots of land and worthwhile stops along the lake.
Adams Trail, Au Sable Point Trail (49 miles)
Some of the finest motorcycling in all of Michigan can be found between Grand Marais and especially the tiny roads around Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Riding this area provides many nice long, sweeping curves and a few hills. The forest is beautiful and there are fantastic views of Lake Superior.
