This route around northern Lake Michigan features a ferry ride option across the lake, miles of beautiful shoreline, and the great forests of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. After leaving the Upper Peninsula, the route travels southward through the forests and farms of lower Michigan. It traverses northeast Indiana, home to the Amish, before ending in Monroeville, a town along the Northern Tier Bicycle Route. If used in conjunction with the Northern Tier, the North Lakes Route will be 260 miles longer to cross the country. North Lakes offers an interesting alternative for Northern Tier riders wanting to experience the beauty of the Great Lakes.

I am so glad this route exists. We are planning a two week tour and didn't want to get too far from home. I love the northwoods feel of northern Wisconsin so this gave us a nice alternate to ride part of the northern tier from Fargo to Osceola one week and than part of the northern lakes route from Osceola to Escanaba the next week. I haven't ridden the route yet so I will write more after the journey.
