FALL COLOR ROUTE #2
Explore the Big Manistee River and Hodenpyl Dam along with our rolling northern country roads on this great fall color route.
Sights: Big Manistee River | Hodenpyl Dam | DNR Fish Hatch
The longest route (if you head out to the Hiking Area on the Manistee River Trail) comes in at about 75 miles. This great route takes you on some of the most scenic country roads (many of them are dirt roads, so be prepared for that). You will enjoy canopies of color along with scenic overlooks along the Big Manistee River. The river basin is beautiful this time of year, and the view from the Hodenpyl Dam Overlook is great. Enjoy great stops along the way as you venture west from Downtown Cadillac.
Route #2: Color Status Update | September 1, 2020
Fall Color along our Hodenpyl Dam Route is still early. Not too many changing trees yet, but stay tuned, lower overnight temperatures suggest that fall color is on its way!
