Scenic Rides

One of the most scenic rides is M-119 "Tunnel of Trees". Although only 20 miles long, this road hugs the eastern shoreline of lake Michigan through a dense forest.  On one side you get a glimpse of old summer cabin homes and on the other side, you see the glorious Lake Michigan shoreline. Lotsa twisties!! Heading north, the route leads to Cross Village, home of a unique turn of the century field stone and driftwood Polish Pub called Leggs Inn which sits on a bluff over Lake Michigan.

Registration is $40 for RA members, $50 for non-members, plus meals on Friday evening and Saturday evening are extra, payable at registration. PREREGISTRATION SAVES YOU $$$. Admission is $15 more at the gate, meals cost $1 more and shirts are $4 extra.     Register here.
