With over 70 miles of natural and paved trails, Mackinac Island is the perfect place to get outdoors. Explore the interior of the island or the island’s eight-mile perimeter on picturesque (and paved) Lake Shore Boulevard (M-185). Biking around the island is relatively flat, and generally takes 1-1½ hours.
Lake Shore Boulevard (M-185) is 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 great 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.
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.
