Tracing the coastal “thumb” of Michigan’s glove, this route rolls past white sugar beaches along the 23-mile Caseville and Lake Huron loop. The journey offers several glute-challenging side trips, such as mountain biking trails in Albert E. Sleeper State Park. With exploring time built in, the loop takes about three hours—not counting hydration breaks in the many nearby parks and beaches; michiganhighways.org/other/lhct.html.
