Motorcycle Road Length: 22 Miles

Written Directions

The southern entrance to the Tunnel of Trees Road (Route 119) is about 35 miles southwest of the very popular tourist stop of Mackinac Island, which is located in the Straits of Mackinac - the juncture of Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. "The Straits" is the waterway which separates Michigan's Lower and Upper Peninsula. The starting point for this route is at the town of Harbor Springs, MI. From Harbor Springs simply follow Route 119 north along the Lake Michigan shore and all the way up to Cross Village.

Scenery  

This road hugs the eastern shoreline of Lake Michigan through a dense forest. On one side you get glimpses of old summer cabin homes tucked back in the forest and on the other side you get brief glimpses of the Lake Michigan shoreline. This is a very narrow and twisty road that runs through the dense forest of trees and is literally one of those roads that you always see photos in travel magazines that make you crave to drive down. You look ahead of you down the narrow tunnel of trees road and cannot help but wonder what will be around the next curve. If you are on 18 wheels it would be a nightmare, if you are pulling a camper it would be a hassle, if you are driving 4 wheels it would be wonderful. But, if you are driving 2 wheels, it is the road that you always kind of dream of finding.

Additional Scenery description from May 18, 2011: Beautiful ride along the Northern Michigan coastline. Becomes an ideal fall ride during the color change - an absolute must for any enthusiast!!! You can start this route as far south as Petoskey. But as you ride North around the harbor you go through the town of Harbor Springs and head up the coast and this is where things really get good. A very scenic tour of the Northern Michigan coastline and a very serene ride. Best time of year is during the fall color change - September is prime riding time! Plenty of places to stop for pictures or soak in the view.

Road Quality  

The road is paved all the way but it is very narrow and has a number of very tight twist-backs. The speed limit varies from 15-30 mph and we spent about 90 minutes to complete the 22 miles, due to the number of sightseeing stops. We drove the road in the last week of September and we were literally all by ourselves on the road, meeting about 4 other vehicles on the entire route. About halfway through, the dense forest opened up on the east side and a large meadow area was literally full of deer out grazing in the deep grass.

Roadside Amenities  

A must stop for either lunch/supper or a drink is at the ***Legs Inn in Cross Village. This is an old rustic cabin-style restaurant made of field stone, drift wood and old large logs and lit with warm amber lighting inside that just makes you feel good the moment you walk through the front door. Legs Inn serves a variety of items but they specialize in Polish ethnic foods and I will tell you that they are absolutely fantastic. We stopped for supper at about 6:00pm and when we finished we walked through their garden backyard overlooking Lake Michigan and watched the beautiful sunset over the lake.

Dec 2013 Update: Amy with the Good Hart General Store graciously provided MotorcycleRoads.com with a link to a very nice official Tunnel of Trees Commemorative Map that was a cooperative effort between all the businesses along the road.

Comment: Used to live in Harbor Springs, so we are very familiar with the trip. Even though we now live over an hour away, it is still a once a year ride for us. Especially during the 'color' time of October. The other great time to enjoy this ride, is mid summer and here are the reasons why. Start your ride in Harbor Springs, not Cross Village. After arriving and enjoying some refreshment in Cross Village, continue north to Sturgeon Bay. This is just another 5-10 minutes north where you can park on the side of the road, strip down to your swimming trunks and enjoy about a mile stretch of Lake Michigan Beach in a very secluded area. Then if you are up to it, you can continue north for another 20-30 minute ride into Mackinaw City and take in the sites there! Regardless of the extended trips I mentioned, this is quite simply the best ride in Michigan! As Rick stated, the only thing you want to be careful of is sand on the road at times. Did a little fish tail a couple of years back that nearly made the trip too memorable!

Comment: I've ridden The Dragon, Three Twisted Sisters and just about every road in Arkansas. If you're riding in the state of Michigan you owe it to yourself to include the Tunnel of Trees in your route. It is not a difficult ride compared to the others, but it is the most beautiful. Lake Michigan is a nice contrast against the lush hardwood forest. I would love to do it when the fall colors are at peak. The Legs Inn is a nice place to eat, but plan on waiting if your visit is on the weekend.

Comment: Nice ride along the shoreline. Lots of turns, but slow going. Might not be too fun on a rainy late fall day when the leaves are dropping and wet. Be careful on the south end, I missed the turn off to 119 the first time I went. Fun little section of road, very scenic and peaceful.

Comment: As many others have said this is a very nice stretch of scenery and curves. Some are very tight so it may not be for you if you like to take them at speed. Watch for cars, deer and bicycles all wanting your lane. If it fits your schedule also try M22 between Manistee and Northport.

Comment: I you are in the area this is a must route. It is second to Tail of the Dragon. Narrow road with lots of curves and covered with trees. I have done both and this is a close second. You have to stop in Good Hart General Store. They have everything, Deli, Bakery, Wine, Beer, Post Office, and anything else you would want. The have fantastic sandwiches. You have to try one. If you are going to Gross Village and like polish food the Legs Inn is a must. Very nice place.

Comment: We made the 275 mile trip just to ride the Tunnel of Trees and was not disappointed. We went on the 4th of July 2010 and we were still almost by ourselves. You do have to watch for Bicycles and many critters and some loose stone and sand in the curves but it is well worth the trip. The posted speeds for the curves AREN'T lying, they are hard and tight, some beyond hairpin but just add that much more to the ride. We are going back in the fall for the colors.

Comment: My friend and I have ridden the 'Tail of the Dragon' and we both agreed that the 'Tunnel of Trees' was far more beautiful, exciting and fulfilling! It had just as many twists and turns...just alittle more stretched out. The beach at the end of it at Cross Village was wonderful as well. I would do it again and again, on or off the motorcycle!

Comment: Road this route Labor Day week-end on our way to "Walk the Bridge" over the Mackinac Bridge. Took the "tunnel" on a whim and are glad we did. Beautiful scenery starting with Harbor Springs. Need to watch the signage in Harbor Springs to make the the right turn and out to tunnel ride or end up going right through town. Lots or great curves but watch the switch backs. Most are signed as curves but don't give you a true idea of how sharp a curve it is. Hard to stay within the posted speed limits that max at 40 or 45 when you really want to tear into some of the turns. Previous riders are correct, there are limited facilities enroute but Legs Inn was a great spot to stop.Very busy restaurant but well worth the stop. Must have been nearly a hundred bikes there on Saturday afternoon. Did find a littel coffee shop set back in the woods about half way through the tunnel. Lots of hand painted signs leaning up against the trees to let you know. It's part of a little antique shop called Trillium Woods Antiques. Great coffee and baked goodies served by a one woman staff who was very friendly and interested in bikes so easy to talk to. Caught glimpses of the lake but the woods around us was more impressive.Planning to ride it again week-end of 10/6-7 as that is forecast as best fall colors. Have been warned that it will be a very slooowww ride due to all the riders wanting to experience the colors of the trees. Highly recommend this ride for the novice, experienced and anyone in between. You will enjoy on any type of bike. We saw cruisers, sport bikes and even a lot of dirt bikes along the way. Seems like the "Tunnel of Trees" is a magnet to all comers! If you decide on this route just continue north to I-75 and Mackinaw City to ride across the Mackinac Bridge. Only half an hour further!

Comment: It's true! This is a spectacular road to ride;especially in the Fall. Gorgeous color, beautiful trees, lake views. Must stop in Good Hart to shop and pick up some of those pot pies, then up the road in Cross Village at historic Legs Inn for a bite to eat and some great views.

Comment: Rode up from Battle Creek thinking we were going to enjoy Cajun food at "Pearl's New Orleans Restaurant" in Elk Rapids, MI, heard about the Tunnel of Trees and decided to spend our last morning riding and we were not disappointed. What scenery, absolutely gorgeous views of Lake Michigan, and yes "Legs Inn" at the end is worth a tour, we did not eat there but the smell, yum! You can walk through the restaurant and out the back to get a beautiful view of the lake. We definitely recommend this ride!!

Comment: A friend and I took a ride around Lake Michigan from July 31st - August 5th, 2009. While we were in Traverse City we met some locals who told us about the tunnel. It wasn't part of our original route but it sounded so good we couldn't pass it up. We weren't disapointed. Toward the end of the day we stopped at the famous "Legs Inn" and enjoyed the view and absolutely fantastic Polish fare served in true european fashion. It was fantastic. I would recommend anyone in the Petosky, MI area take this road and see what all the hype is about. In 1300 miles my friend and I both agree that this was the highlight of the ride. In fact, we loved it so much that we're going to take the ferry accross the lake next year just so we can cruise "The Tunnel" again!

Comment: This road has no shoulders and in several places they have reduced the width of the pavement rather than cut down trees. Beautiful woods with occasional glimpses of Lake Michigan to the west. Be sure to stop in Cross Village and visit Leg's Inn for food, drink and a beautiful view of the Big Lake from the deck. From Cross Village you are close to the Mackinaw Bridge, and further north are the locks at Sault St. Marie.

Comment: Rode M-119 ("Tunnel of Trees") with five friends this past summer (2009). It was arguably the premier stretch of road of our 1,150 miles and I hope to ride it again this year, God willing. Didn't know about the restaurant in Cross Village (where the road begins), but Harbor Springs, where the road ends, is a LOVELY town!

Comment: As a native Michigander, I sadly didn't learn of the Tunnel of Trees until after I had moved out of state. My parents retired to the Grand Traverse area after my departure and it wasn't until a visit that we drove on 119 on the way up to Mackinaw City and Mackinac Island. We were in an auto and while I thoroughly enjoyed it, I was wishing I was on my cycle the entire time. It is now on my bucket list to get back to Michigan with my bike so that I can ride many of the roads I grew up driving on, and that trip would be highlighted by a route that includes the Tunnel of Trees.

Comment: Just rode the tunnel over the Sept. 12, 2009 weekend as a portion of riding the lower Michigan coast line from Frankfort to Mount Clemens. Of the almost 1000 miles it was the best of the ride. I intend to ride it again before the snow set in. I would highly recommend riding it in both directions and watch out for the sand you may encounter. Enjoy it.

Comment: I couldn't belive the way this road just winds throught he trees along Michigan's western side along Lake Michigan. This is a must ride road for anyone taking a bike trip along the shore of Lake Michigan. Be prepared to grab some brake and downshift around some of the tight turns. This will test your technical riding ability. The route is M119. if you're in a group go single file as the road is barely two cars wide.
