Michigan’s Tunnel of Trees
Tunnel of Trees featuring Don Middlebrook lent his music to our video. M119 is a 16-mile scenic road beginning in Harbor Springs and ends in Cross Village. As you travel along M-119’s narrow road, you will notice it lacks a centerline. Please take caution and do not drive this route if you are in a hurry!
Fun Facts about the Michigan’s Tunnel of Trees Video
Traveling north from the exclusive resort town of Harbor Springs, M-119 takes you through an area once inhabited by the Odawa Indians, and veers right and left for about 20 miles to the tiny town of Cross Village.
The Tunnel of Trees video featuring Don Middlebrook came about during a phone call between Duane and Don. “My inspiration was to feature Michigan artist and bands as the soundtrack to the video”, states Duane. During the conversation Don suggested, ‘Hey use my music’. I told Don I would sleep on it and the next day said, “Sure, Why not”.
“We chatted about a few must have songs Don suggested”, Duane continues. “From there went through all his CD’s to find the music best fitting for the Tunnel of Trees video. It worked!”
Pure Michigan Beauty
According to Petoskey Area dot com, “For the locals, it’s where they go when they get a break in schedules. For guests to the area, it’s the fall color route they most often ask about. And for those of you who have not yet made it the Petoskey Area, the Tunnel of Trees is where anyone who has come before will tell you to go.” And there is more, “Snaking its way along the Lake Michigan shoreline from Harbor Springs to Good Hart and all the way to historic Cross Village – a 20-mile trek, the Tunnel of Trees offers unparalleled views of the coast. Along the way you’ll also catch a glimpse of Beaver Island and two lighthouses. And with more curves than Marilyn Monroe (137!) this beautiful route is not one to try and rush through – note the 25mph signs are not simply a suggestion.”
Roadtrippers state, “While the state’s M-22 gets a lot of the attention, the M-119, aka the Tunnel of Trees, might be the best drive in all of Michigan.”
