In addition to the Apple Century event, the Three Oaks Spoke maintains the Backroads Bikeway trails which provide 20 self-guided tours on paved area roads, with lengths from five to sixty miles.
The routes follow secondary roads over rushing streams and through picturesque rolling hills, patchwork farmland and beautiful meadows, parks and forests. View area attractions such as the New Buffalo Railroad Museum on the New Buffalo and Four Winds Trails. Enjoy a walk through Warren Woods State Park or a swim in Lake Michigan at Warren Dunes State Park on the Warren Dunes and Singer Lake Trails.
