With over 70 miles of natural and paved trails, Mackinac Island is great for biking. Explore the interior or the island’s eight-mile perimeter on picturesque (and paved) Lake Shore Boulevard (M-185) — the only interstate in the nation that does not allow personal motor vehicles.
Highlights along the way include Arch Rock, British Landing, Brown’s Brook, Devil’s Kitchen, and fantastic views of the Straits of Mackinac and Mackinac Bridge. Use the Mackinac roads and trails map to guide you, or visit the Concierge Desk for ideas and to customize your biking adventure.
Biking around the island is relatively flat, and generally takes 1-1½ hours. Refreshments and restrooms are available at the halfway point. Special Grand Hotel box luncheons are available and can be enjoyed at any of the picnic spots throughout the Island. Call 906-847-3331 for more information.
Please note: Arch Rock Plaza will be closed from September 11, 2023 – April 2024 as construction of the $7.5 million Milliken Nature Center begins at the area. More information can be found on the park website.
