From the bloggers at Roadtrippers:
Coastal Michigan may be one of the most beautiful areas of the country, especially in the fall and spring, and while M-22 gets a lot of the attention, M-119, aka the Tunnel of Trees, might be our favorite drive in all of Michigan.
Starting just north of Petoskey, Hwy. 119 passes through the charming town of Harbor Springs before becoming what we refer to as the “tunnel of trees” as it winds toward Cross Village. It’s not a long stretch of road, just 20 miles or so, but you’ll never forget your first drive or ride down the Tunnel of Trees
It’s called a “tunnel,” but unlike a mountain tunnel, the Tunnel of Trees gives the road tripper a different view and experience at each twist and turn as it hugs the Lake Michigan with rich hardwoods on each side creating a tree canopy over much of the narrow road.
