Dexter Trail - Gregory to Mason, MI + ADD NEW ROUTE
- Trip Toolbox
This route starts near Gregory goes by Stockbridge and Dansville, and ends in Mason near Lansing, MI. The easy path is to take M-36 northbound to Dexter Trail westbound and just follow the road signs to keep you on Dexter Trail. Taking this path is a bit boring at first so to spice it up take M-106 southbound to Brogan northbound to Dexter Trail. This will add a few nice corners including a banked 20mph corner just south of Gregory. Be careful with this route. There is a lot of tar filling the cracks that can be slippery. Hopefully this changes soon. (June 2011)
Not really any special scenery here but this route is about the ride. Mostly rural area with farms. Much more scenic when Fall comes around.
Curves, low traffic and very few intersection stops are why you take this route. Lots of big fast sweepers with little traffic and smooth road conditions. Sprinkled in are a few tight twisties to get the juices flowing. Nothing like SE OH or more mountainous areas in other states but really quite nice for SE Michigan.
Not many amenities on the route itself. In fact I can't think of any! Fuel is available at the ends in Gregory and Mason. Mason is a larger city with full services and a nice downtown area for food and drink.
