Traverse City Biking in Fall

The best way to experience the full sensory overload of autumn – the sound and smell of those new-fallen leaves, the feel of the breeze -- is to get out and spend time cycling along the country roads of the Leelanau or Old Mission peninsulas.

Of course, you have to pick the right kind of trail! Some provide tunnels through deep woods, where the colors surround you on every side. Others are high on open hillsides, where you can get sweeping views of sky, water and autumn foliage.

Mountain bikers will be glad to know that there are plentiful dirt tracks, including the trails at Timber Ridge Resort and the Glacial Hills Pathway near Bellaire.
