From Mackinaw City, Michigan to Cross Village, the route primarily follows two-lane county roads through farms. From the campground at Wilderness State Park, you can see a glorious sunset over Lake Michigan with the distant view of the Mackinaw Bridge. The Tunnel of Trees Scenic Route from Cross Village to Harbor Springs is a narrow road, mostly without a centerline, but traffic is light and slow moving. From just south of Acme through Traverse City and on to Suttons Bay is the TART Trail, an off-road path that leads through the State Park and downtown Traverse City. From Suttons Bay, the route crosses the Leelanau Peninsula to the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Then you’ll follow rural roads and state highways through small vacation towns south along the Lake Michigan shore. At New Buffalo, the route leaves the Lake Michigan shoreline on rural roads across Indiana farmland to La Porte. The route follows the residential streets through La Porte before heading out on rural farm roads to Rochester and you’ll finish this section on the Nickel Plate Trail to Denver, Indiana.
