Cruisin’ Alger County
Fantastic views of Lake Superior, the Pictured Rocks National Lake Shore and more than a few magnificent waterfalls await riders/bikers riding into Alger County.
Munising is the home town of U.P. Cruising. The town of Munising sits on the Lake Superior lakeshore and is one of those little communities that people come to and never leave.
If you like waterfalls, there are at least a half dozen waterfalls worth taking the time to visit. Now if you’re looking for a nice beach, just west of Munising is the Au Train river with an easy pull over.
Munising is a biker friendly town with warm friendly people. If you had to pick a location to stage your rides in the Central U.P, this would be my recommendation.
Highway H-58 between Munising and Grand Marais is finally completed. This is one of the top five motorcycling roads in Upper Michigan. This newly paved road with its sweeping curves will quickly become a road of choice in the years to come.
(Three Thumbs Up)
Forest Highway 13 combined with Buckhorn Road make for one of the best forest rides in the Central U.P. Plenty of twists and turns as you cruise through the deep woods.
(Two Thumbs Up)
Highway M-28 between Munising and Marquette is a great ride along the Lake Superior Lakeshore. Some great beach pull outs along the way with one fantastic overlook just west of Munising.
(Two Thumbs Up)
The Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is one sight anyone visiting the area should see. It’s a short ride out of Munising to Miners Castle.
Waterfalls are everywhere you turn in Alger County.
