Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This clockwise, flat loop around the north end of Lake Leelanau departs from the fishing and tourist village of Leland. Riders will pass a lakeside park and through the village of Lake Leelanau, situated at the narrows of the hourglass-shaped lake. Traffic will be light on the east side of the lake, but will increase on the trip back into Leland, best known for its Fishtown, a 140-year-old cluster of weathered fishing shanties, most now converted to eateries and shops, situated at the mouth of the Leland River connecting Lake Leelanau with Lake Michigan.

After the ride, watch a commercial boat return with the day's catch, sample smoked whitefish in the shanties-turned-shops, or take a ferry to one of the Manitou Islands, part of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Among Leelanau County's many quaint hamlets and burgs, the village of Leland has a distinct flavor. That's likely because it's just about the only one that retains indigenous industry commercial fishing."

This is a really fun, flat, easy ride! The roads were very quiet and there are a lot of nice glimpses of the lake as you ride along. Seems like there were nice big paved shoulders along almost the whole route. The town of Leland is very cute so plan to spend some time walking around and grabbing lunch before or after your ride.
