Where to Bike in Michigan This Fall

Michigan is home to an expansive variety of wooded trails and lively city paths to explore throughout the year, however fall in Michigan has an almost magical ambiance - and one of the best ways to experience it is to bike it.

The Farmers Almanac provides a list of probable dates for peak fall color this year. Putting peak times in Michigan around October 1-21. 

Check out the list of colorful destinations below to help plan your next fall adventure.

Mackinac Island - Mackinac County

Many Michigan bikers stretch their legs while biking the 8-mile main loop of the island’s shoreline (Lake Shore Drive). Mackinac Island is completely “motor-less” which means the best way to get around is to bike or grab a carriage ride and the outside loop is the state’s only highway that is totally motor free. With a constant view of the stunning Lake Huron as your biking companion, this is one of the scenic rides in the entire Midwest.

Iron Ore Heritage Trail - Marquette County

This 47-mile trail enjoyed by bikers, skiers, and snowmobilers offers an opportunity to explore the area’s unique mining heritage and to view some very interesting and artfully designed trail markers. The trail follows along what is mostly abandoned railroad corridors that once brought lumber to furnaces and forges along Lake Superior Harbor.

Leelanau Trail - Ingham County 

The Leelanau Trail is 17-miles of picturesque forests, farms, vineyards, lakes and ponds running from Traverse City and Suttons Bay.

Detroit Riverwalk - Wayne County

Along the 3.5 mile route are beautiful views of the Detroit River and breathtaking skyline scenery. The trails link up to Milliken State Park, a 31-acre park that offers covered picnic areas, shoreline fishing, as well as a particular 63-foot lighthouse that offers a unique photo opportunity. 

Wherever you explore this fall, make sure to check out our online bike shop for a plethora of biking options - and take a look at our brand new, E-Sparrow electric bike, our first ever electric bike.
