With 30% of Michigan’s land mass and only 3% of its population, the Upper Peninsula is a wilderness of barely-maintained logging roads, jeep trails and singletrack. Gravel, but better. Enhanced.
You’re going to see some nice gravel. You’re going to see some burly, rocky, mean gravel too. There’s not a lot of hike-a-bike but probably some. Not a lot of sand but enough you’ll talk about it later. Possibly a river crossing. Cell service is highly questionable and not to be relied on. Wildlife sightings are pretty much guaranteed, deer, fox, bear, maybe a moose. You will climb Michigan’s highest peak (Mt. Arvon). You will feel alone, but at the same time fully present, as the road ahead requires full attention and mental sharpness.
We don’t tell you this to scare you, or to brag. You can do this, just be prepared. Enhanced gravel will help you create an enhanced version of yourself.
