Ludington features several cultural trails that provide a purpose to those drives along the back roads. But, those country roads are only one way to enjoy the panoramic views of fall color.
Explore the miles of hiking and biking trails, where you’ll get an up-close view of the kaleidoscope of color and check out the brilliance from the water via some paddle sports along the rivers and inland lakes.
Ludington features half a dozen cultural trails. The Barn Quilt Trail and the Agricultural Trail provide a point to your journey down the country roads.
The barn quilts are gorgeous against the fall colors. The Agricultural Trail leads you to the autumn harvest and the bounty of the local farms.
Autumn is the perfect time to explore some paddle sports as your journey will take you through a forest of color.
The Pere Marquette River Loop takes about two hours to paddle, depending on weather conditions. A great place to start is Suttons Landing which has easy access to the river and plenty of free parking.
