U.P. Hidden Coast Recreation RouteThe U.P. Hidden Coast Recreation Route runs from Menominee, the gateway to the Upper Peninsula, through to the northern city limits of Gladstone; 64 miles along the western shoreline of Lake Michigan in the central Upper Peninsula of Michigan. As it navigates between water and wilderness, natural vegetation obscures the view of Lake Michigan's bays. The best way to view the Lake is to exit the highway and pull into one of the several (over 25 public owned) recreational areas along the U.P. Hidden Coast. Use our U.P. Hidden Coast Recreation Route Map to start your adventure.
