There are over twenty-five motorcycle road routes in Michigan that will soothe a wandering soul on the quest for winding terrain, natural beauty, and solitude. Here are the top five best motorcycle road routes in Michigan.
Coming in first on the list is Tunnel of Trees. This picturesque route has it all. The tall trees are standing at attention and some bend across the road creating an archway for your passage. The road is smooth as it winds around curves giving you snapshots where the trees part to expose Lake Michigan in the background. You can find it on Michigan Highway 119 as you enter the city of Harbor Springs.
Second on the list is Michigan’s Center Lake Michigan Scenic Tour. It is another route that will take your breath away. This route is coastal from start to finish. You will encounter beaches, lighthouses, covered bridges and beautiful foliage in the form of trees, shrubs, and flowers. There is no other route like it in the MidWest. You can start in the city of Muskegon on US 31 and follow the scenic signs to get the full experience.
Third on the list is Rochester Road South of Leonard. If you are interested in the quick spin, then this route is for you. The road is smooth with no hills and a couple of turns. You can get there in the city of Leonard and it is near the end of the trip to the city of Lakeville where you get to lean into the turns.
Coming in fourth on the list is Curly Lewis Memorial Highway. Here is another coastal route. It is not a beach. It is an open water cargo shippers landscape. You will see a lighthouse in the distance. You can hear the sounds of water crashing against the shore. It is a tranquil experience. The route is thirty-three miles long and runs through Tahquamenon country. You can get there using Michigan Highway 123.
Fifth on the list is North Lansing Loop. This quick route is where the Grand River and Red Cedar River intersect in Lansing, Michigan. Oddly enough, the loop consists of rural roads. It is great for the locals who do not want to travel too far from home. You can get there using Michigan Highway 127.
