  • The drive to the lighthouse is as exciting as the destination. An 18 mile jaunt on a sand road through the national forest with ups, downs, and turns. The road looks more like a ATV trail but cars...

  • This is our favorite Michigan beach. Why? There are few people. We enjoy rock hunting, it’s good for that. It’s full of history. And it’s a freaking adventure just to get there! A four wheel...

  • **Visited in April** DO NOT FOLLOW THE GPS! It is beautiful. But be very careful, 4 wheel drive is required. Thank goodness a local found us and showed us how to get there. And told us how to get back. It was well over 3 hours (total) on dirt/mud trails. And there is no signal/cell phone service the entire drive.
  • Very beautiful place and worth the drive to see it. We really didn't even know it was there. We were just driving east out of Munising and saw the sign for it. It really is 18 miles of dirt road, though. Luckily we had our SUV that day so we were fine. I don't think I'd attempt it in a sedan though. Definitely not a place to get stuck. It was the dirtiest our Traverse had ever been. Someone could make a small fortune having a car wash back at the highway.
