This was pure delight: fantastic views attainable by automobile. If you (or someone you're with) has difficulty hiking or biking, this is especially gratifying. The drive has numerous spots to pull o… Full review by John F

Brockway Mountain Drive is the more scenic route to get across the peninsula, but the views are worth it. From the top of the mountain you can say a great view of lake superior. There is an area a… Full review by J222_psu

I do not have an ATV, so am not intimately familiar with the laws. I did look in Michigan off road handbook. The road has no good shoulder, so one would have to drive on the roadway, and there are no signs at the entrance to the road regarding ATVs. As I read the law, it says you can drive your ATV on the roadway only if it is licensed for on-road use, or if the local government allows it. Here is what the link says: Prohibited ORV Operation on Other Lands ■ Roads, streets, and highways maintained for year-round automobile travel are closed to ORV operation, including the shoulder and the right-of-way. (That is, the entire width between boundary lines of public ways maintained for vehicular travel is closed to ORVs.) However, ORVs registered as motor vehicles by the Secretary of State may be operated on the roadway. ■ ORVs may be operated on a roadway in accordance with a locally enacted ordinance. The ORV rider is responsible for contacting the local authorities to find out which roadways are open to ORV use. TripAdvisor will not let me post a link, but if you Google offroad-ed/assets/pdf/handbook, you might find it.

Looking for a Fall Color Report from this location. In many places the trees are turning early due to the recent crisp air temps. I am supposed to go up there Oct. 19th but I may reconsider and head south if the colors have arrived too early. Thanks!! Looking forward to any responses from people who have been there this week.

We were up there in mid August. I live about 4 hours south, and I can tell you we are already raking leaves here. I would think by mid October the leaves up there will be long gone. Not to …

We were up there in mid August. I live about 4 hours south, and I can tell you we are already raking leaves here. I would think by mid October the leaves up there will be long gone. Not to mention the cold air will surely have set in by then, and might even be getting bits of snow. Try going mid September any given year!

Q:
I'm wondering whether this Brockway Mountain Drive is the same as the Copper Country Trail number 77 of the National Scenic Byways Program?
A:
No it is not the same trail system. I just did a search online and Brockway Mountain Drive goes off of Hwy 26 and heads inland. Where Hwy 26 goes along the lake shore.
