Scenic Drives & Fall Color
The Covered Drive
The first road designated as a Scenic Heritage Route in Michigan was the 18-mile segment of US-41 from Delaware to Copper Harbor. The trees, some as close as three feet from the pavement, form a complete canopy over most of the entire length of the Heritage Route. A "must-see" on everyone's fall color tour.
Brockway Mountain Drive
The 9 1/2 mile seasonal drive is the highest above-sea-level-drive between the Rockies & Alleghenies. Breathtaking views of Lake Superior and thousands of acres of the Keweenaw. Sunsets are free.
M-26 between Eagle Harbor & Copper Harbor
M-26 runs along the shores of Lake Superior on the north shore of the Keweenaw between Eagle River and Copper Harbor and encompasses parks, beaches, waterfalls, lighthouses and miles of unsurpassed beauty.
Sand Dune Drive
The portion of M-26 between Eagle River and Eagle Harbor is often referred to as the "Sand Dune Drive" because of the sand dunes in the Great Sand Bay/Cat Harbor area of the drive.
Located west of Houghton, off the Houghton Canal Road, the "Covered Road", especially beautiful in the fall, leads to Redridge and Lake Superior.
This county road runs between the communities of Gay and Bete Grise along the south shore of the Keweenaw Peninsula and offers sandy beaches, parks, and views of the Huron Mountains across Keweenaw Bay.
