Ready for a vacation where the good times roll?
Smile. You’ve come to the right place.
The resort communities that make up the Petoskey Area have earned quite a reputation among touring and mountain bikers alike.
If you enjoy touring, miles of paved paths offer breathtaking vistas. More of a mountain biking type? The trails here lead though some of northern Michigan’s most majestic forests. Some of the trails are wide and leisurely; some are laced with extreme terrain, jumps and narrow passages.
Tours or trails, every ride here brings a new experience, new scenery, a new appreciation of natural beauty.
Whichever of our charming communities you choose for lodging, here are some of the rides you can look forward to:
- Avalanche Mountain Preserve – 300 acres of woodlands; views of Lake Charlevoix
- Bear River Recreation Area – 1.1 miles of paved trails along the river
- Boyne Highlands Resort – Wooded trails and lightly trafficked roads
- Little Traverse Wheelway – A paved, 26-mile trail from Harbor Springs to Charlevoix
