Tunnel of Trees Road, Michigan

Tunnel of Trees Road, Michigan

The Tunnel of Trees Road is ... not surprisingly ... one of the great forest routes in North America.

It's located about 35 miles from the very popular tourist stop, Mackinac Island, at the juncture of Michigan and Upper Peninsula Michigan.

You and your bike will hug the eastern shoreline of Lake Michigan through a dense forest, one side offering glimpses of old summer cabin homes tucked back in the forest, while the other side brings a quick peek or two of the Lake Michigan shoreline.

Ride north around the harbor to go through the town of Harbor Springs and up the coast ... the Northern Michigan coastline is just spectacular.

Tunnel of Trees Road is perfect for a fall ride during the color change -- try it in September for the very best vistas.
