mackinac trail scenic drive

 

mackinac trail driveYou cross "the bridge" over the straits and find yourself on I-75 which goes north to the "soo" or lets you head west on U.S. 2 toward Manistique, Escanaba and Crystal Falls. The Mackinac trail is H-63, a two lane paved road that runs from St. Ignace to Sault St. Marie. H-63 runs almost parallel to I-75 but you would think you are in different worlds. The highway is a rushing highway and the trail is a quiet winding drive through the pines.

You will pass through old Michigan towns like Rudyard and Kinross and likely, meet some friendly folk along the way.
