As many of you already know, most Decker Tours start with a get together Sunday night from wherever we are departing and leave Monday morning and finish on Friday. One thing that is “NEW” about this trip is that we are riding an additional day and finishing on Saturday. The “BIG NEW” is the route we take. Leaving Eagle River, WI on day one has us traveling to Ishpeming MI just outside Marquette, MI, which sits right on the South Shore of Lake Superior, hence the “South Shore” part of the tour description.
The next morning we depart for Christmas MI, a beautiful ride paralleling the South Shore, with a great night at the White Pine Lodge, which is owned by a retired Michigan snowmobile racing legend, Ivan Hanson.
Day three will have us traveling to the beautiful little town of Grand Marais, MI again right on Lake Superior where we’ll be staying at the Voyagers Motel high on top of a hill overlooking the lake and harbor and eating dinner at the Lake Superior Brew Pub.
Day four will have us traveling away from the lake to the quaint little berg of Gwinn MI on some of the best trails the U.P. has to offer culminating with our evening meal at the impeccable Up North Lodge.
Day five we head for Iron Mountain MI again on some of the most remote, untraveled routes in all of the U.P. where we’ll be staying at the Quality Inn and dining at one of the best Italian Eateries you’ll ever visit.
Day six “THE NEW DAY” takes us from Iron Mountain back to Eagle River where this trip started. This will be new territory and trails that even the most seasoned Decker Sno-Venture tour goer has not seen. This is a fabulous itinerary that will leave you wishing for one more day!
