Tired of crowded mountain bike trails? Bored of riding through scenery that is little more than mowed farm fields and gravel pits? Then head north to the great Upper Peninsula of Michigan!
In this special region above the Mackinac Bridge, the trails are plentiful, the wilderness scenery is outstanding and the chances of encountering wildlife from the seat of your bike - deer, bald eagles, possibly even a black bear - are better than anywhere else in the state.
Outings include rolling through a stand of virgin hemlock on Bruno's Run near Munising, stopping to enjoy the waterfalls of the Porcupine Mountains State Park, taking a ferry boat to mountain bike around Grand Island, and boarding the Algoma Central Railroad to be dropped off in the wilderness north of Searchmont Resort.
