There are many ways to view the splendor of autumn’s pallet and Western Michigan travelers have an abundance of ways to enjoy the show – either by car, train, boat, bicycle, hot air balloon rides, at festivals, hiking, on golf courses and many historic highways.
Many of these “old roads” cut through great forests of hardwoods and pines and make perfect fall foliage tours with lots of color. And some of the roads are state-designated scenic routes that will wind you around lakes, rivers and waterfalls like the Upper Tahquamanon Falls pictured.
From 40 miles to 140 miles, there’s a day trip perfect for everyone. View this listing of 26 Scenic Driving Routes and print detailed directions for each.
