Written Directions

Mio north on 33 to McKinley Rd (Great winding and hilly road.) go east till you get to Ausable/Aspen Valley Rds Make left head North on Aspen Valley till you hit M65/M72 turn right follow that till they split follow M72 East to Harrisville on the Lake Huron Shoreline


This is along the Ausable River National forest following the river. Mixed trees maybe about 40% pines but great views of the river. Great stops and roadside areas. Can swim, fish or just enjoy the ride. Lots of wildlife..many deer early and late with the turns recommend for late morning to early evening. Pass through the small town of McKinley Fall is a great scenic route.

Drive Enjoyment

Road has been repaved almost all the way! There are many sweeping turns and hills and a few sharp turns.

Tourism Opportunities

Other than the scenery only area to stop for food or gas along this route until M72 is in McKinley. Many roadside stops with toilets along the river. Many Historic Sites near the route. There is some limited camping but on dirt roads.

Live nearby. Ride one side of the river out and the other side back. Watch for law along the McKinley stretch it's too easy to get running over the speed limit. Unique stop at Pickles bar south of Hale for some fried gizzards.
