Manistee’s Inland Fall Color Loop

Make your way inland and enjoy the fall color through the dense hardwoods of the Manistee National Forest. Mother Nature puts on a show every fall as the inland route peaks about a week to 10 days prior to the coastal loop giving Manistee two fall color seasons. Stop and visit some of the most scenic bridges, dams and historic sites in the region as you cross 4 stunning river basins. Along the inland loop, there are plenty of opportunities for day-hikes at the Weir, Big-M, Cooley Bridge, the Manistee River Trail and many more.

No trip along the inland loop is complete without a visit to Iron Fish Distillery and Northern Natural Cider House and Winery, where you will sip and taste the true palette of fall in Pure Michigan.
