If you have snowmobiled in the Jordan Valley or around the towns of East Jordan, Ellsworth, Atwood or Boyne Falls, you already know how beautiful these communities are in the winter. Have you visited them during the colorful fall season? If not, you are missing out on some of the country’s most spectacular fall “leaf peeping” experiences.

The rolling drumlins, rivers, lakes, valleys, nature preserves and vistas along the 26-mile corridor known as The Breezeway (C48), along with the splendid Jordan Valley and Jordan River, provide some of nature’s finest and most breathtaking overlooks, views and photos.
This fall, more than ever, is the perfect time to make this region your fall experience destination. We feel we “own the fall” with the finest scenic overlooks, best hiking trails and nature preserves (six along The Breezeway), fishing, paddling, golfing, hunting and disc golf opportunities. We have farm markets, pumpkin patches and corn mazes for all ages to enjoy. The 12th Annual Breezeway Fall Cruises will take place Sept. 26, Oct. 3 and Oct. 10. Pick up your “goodie bags” between 10 a.m. and noon at Royal Farms in Atwood. The bags contain coupons, tokens and a trip tip sheet, along with a fall color tour route map. Proceed at your own pace and discover all The Breezeway has to offer. From great restaurants, quaint shops, artists, resale shops and recreational opportunities galore, we have the perfect fall experience awaiting you!

With the warm lake water temperatures, forecasters are predicting a lot of lake-effect snow for the upcoming winter. Our local snowmobile club and snow-related businesses are gearing up for a busy snowmobile season. Be sure to include East Jordan and the gorgeous Jordan Valley Snowmobile Trail on your 2020-2021 winter riding list.
