Michigan is one of the most beautiful states in the country, and it’s especially pretty in the fall when the leaves are changing. If you’re looking for a fun way to spend the weekend, here are some of the most colorful fall road trips in Michigan you can during the autumn months.
Whether you just want a quick trip or you want to be on the road for hours, there’s a road trip for you in Michigan. For short trippers, there are trips under an hour, such as the 20-minute Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive in Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Keep it short, or stop at any of the dozen suggested spots along the way.
This is just one of many short drives; another is the 45-minute trip on Route 2 from St. Ignace to Naubinway that goes over the Cut River Bridge, the Tunnel of Trees on M-119 (a must-see in fall), and the Black River National Forest Scenic Byway, which passes Rainbow Falls.
If you prefer something mid-range, around an hour or two, try the River Road National Scenic Byway, which starts out right on Lake Huron and goes by the Foote Pond Overlook. There’s also the Copper Country Trail National Byway and the Old Mission Peninsula on M-37.
Finally, if you want to make a day of it, drive down the Sunrise Coast, also known as the Pure Michigan Byway, and see Tawas Point, the Lake Huron shoreline, and the Black River Hills.
