Northern Michigan Fall Color Tour Part IV

September 11th, 2016


There are 2 weeks left until the start of fall! Last Monday, we shared Michigan Fall Color Tour Part III and highlighted fall on Mackinac Island.

Pick your favorite fall color tour that is shared during this five-week color tour series, book a stay at Hotel Walloon and come for a long weekend to enjoy the natural beauty of northern Michigan! At the end of a long day of sightseeing, head back to Hotel Walloon for the perfect night of relaxation in front of our authentic stone fireplace, sip some wine and indulge with hors d’ouevres provided by the Walloon Lake Inn.

This week, read about a wonderful way to see the fall leaves changing color from a bird’s eye view!

Boyne Mountain Fall Color Chair Lift Rides

Boyne Mountain, located only 10 minutes away from Hotel Walloon, offers scenic chair lift rides up the ski hills during the fall. This fall family activity is perfect for an afternoon spent in Northern Michigan. The view from the top of the mountain will not disappoint, as you will be able to see the fall scenery for miles and miles.

Once you have reached the top of the mountain, hop off the chairlift and explore the hiking trails, disc golf course and biking trails. The trails at the top will lead you through more fall beauty, as you will be able to see the Michigan fall colors up close. If you look hard enough, there will probably be a few perfect fall leaves on the ground. Take the leaves home and press them as the perfect Northern Michigan fall memory. This fall chairlift ride is perfect combined with the Northern Michigan Fall Color Tour Part II, which is the Tri County Color Tour and already goes through this area.

Boyne Highlands Fall Color Chair Lift Rides

Another great way to see peak fall colors in Michigan is to enjoy a scenic chair lift ride at Boyne Highlands, located only 30 minutes north of Hotel Walloon. Boyne Highlands, located near Harbor Springs, will provide you with a relaxing Michigan autumn afternoon, breathing in the crisp fall air. From the top you will see views of Little Traverse Bay, Petoskey and Harbor Springs. If the weather is exceptionally nice, you will even be able to see the Mackinac Bridge.

Boyne Highland’s chair lift is a relaxing way to be outside in the fall weather and enjoy the fall colors in Michigan. The view will be breathtaking, as you will be able to see the majority of Northern Michigan once you reach the top of the mountain! This chair lift ride is the perfect stop to add to the Northern Michigan Fall Color Tour Part I, which is the M119 Tunnel of Trees Michigan color tour.

Both of these scenic chair lift rides provide incredible views and will allow you to see the best of the peak fall foliage in Michigan.

After a day in the crisp air, head back to Hotel Walloon, relax on the private patio with a glass of wine in your hands! Spend some time admiring the beautiful fall colors, before heading into the outdoor heated spa to enjoy a beautiful Northern Michigan sunset.
