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 our recommendation.

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.
