Tunnel of Trees—Harbor Springs, MI

In the northwestern part of Lower Michigan, you’ll find the Tunnel of Trees—a 30-mile stretch of road that you can drive or bike. Located near Harbor Springs, there just happens to be an amazing farm/winery/cafe/brewery (yes, all of those things) right near the start of the famous Tunnel. Pond Hill Farm is open year round until 6 p.m. and is a great place to stop for lunch or to pick up some fresh jams from the farm store. There are also trails to hike onsite.
