This ride has a couple of options to make the trip shorter. It you go only around the lower lake, you’ll have a 41.1-mile trip from Norris. The trip to Lake Leelanau and around the upper lake and home will cover 46 miles. The trip into Leland for lunch and back to Norris will make 42.6 miles. If a still short ride  ts your conditioning, start at the Lake Leelanau access or even the town of Lake Leelanau.
Ride this 50 at your leisure. You’ll  nd beaches, parks, campgrounds, fruit stands, bakeries, restaurants and ice cream stands on the route. Leland makes a very nice place to spend time just wandering.

of paved multi-use trail that passes several landscapes, has proven popular with locals and visitors.
But one thing is guaranteed to anyone on two wheels in Leelanau County – beauty will surround you.
