One day ride across north central Michigan
The mostly rural, 257 mile loop includes East Jordan, Gaylord, Alpena, and Kalkaska. Rent a Harley in Gaylord at Zips, near the 108 acre Elk City Park where you might glimpse a herd of roughly 70 Elk. Watch out for some sharp curves on Hwy 32. See map with directions.
"The Tunnel of Trees is especially breathtaking in spring when trillium carpet the forest floor that borders the road, or in autumn when the hardwoods along it are aflame in fall color. M-119 begins at the north end of Petoskey, but doesn’t become The Tunnel of Trees until north of Harbor Springs. From Harbor Springs M-119/Tunnel of Trees becomes a narrow road that runs 20 miles along a spectacular bluff overlooking Lake Michigan, with especially sharp twists at Devil’s Elbow (reputed to be haunted by an evil spirit and voices after dark) and at Horseshoe Curve or Bend. Along the way you’ll find the unique shops, great food & drink, spectacular scenery and fascinating history that all add up to make M-119′s Tunnel of Trees, a perfect Northern Michigan vacation."
