No matter the mode of transportation, the Keweenaw Peninsula is filled with breathtaking scenery all year round. But there’s something freeing about hitting the road and experiencing the Copper Country by automobile. Vast bluebird skies and exhilarating views combine with gently winding roads along Lake Superior’s rugged shorelines. Enjoy panoramic views of the Keweenaw atop Brockway Mountain Drive or flow through tree bough “tunnels” corridors during summer and fall for a secluded drive.
Brockway Mountain Drive is consistently ranked as one of the top scenic drives in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. This 9.5 mile stretch off M-26 between Eagle Harbor and Copper Harbor is the highest above sea-level drive between the Rockies and Alleghenies. It offers visitors incredible views of Lake Superior, inland lakes, and is a prime site for Northern Lights viewing in the Keweenaw Peninsula.
