Welcome to the Great Lakes Circle Tour website, dedicated to the past, present and future of the scenic routes encircling four of the five Great Lakes: Superior, Michigan, Huron and Erie. This website is intended to be a clearinghouse of information on the Circle Tours, from travel and tourism information to technical specifications on the routes themselves. A good place to start is the Overview & Introduction page.
The initial impetus for the creation of this website was the 2014 Great Lakes Coastal Trails Conference held on May 15–16, 2014 in Saugatuck, Michigan. The content and focus of this website will continue to grow and change over time.
The navigation tools provided, including the menus across the top of each page, should help you navigate through the website. More content and new information is always in the planning. Please check back regularly to see what has been added!
As always, visitor feedback, comments, corrections and suggestions are eagerly accepted. Follow the various links under the About This Site menu above for more on how to provide your welcomed feedback.
Thanks for visiting,
Christopher J. Bessert
